Practice Makes Perfect.

Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.

But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?

Maya shadows teen heartthrob Jesse Scott for a day and what she expects to be a boring day ends up being one of the best days of her life. He’s a reminder of everything that she has lost. Maya realizes that if she wants something bad enough, she’s going to have to get it herself.

Maya ends up being one of those characters that are lost, but will end up finding herself by the end. Through her eyes we see her grow into her own and become stronger than ever. I liked her for Jesse. They made such a good match. Especially when you realize how annoying and rude he is at the beginning. I actually really enjoy character stories where the love interests dislike each other at first. It makes it so much more fun and this book had it. I liked they’re little day of adventure and their love didn’t feel so instant even though they only knew each other for such a short period of time.

There’s something about Miranda Kenneally’s books that warm my heart. She knows exactly how to tug at your heart strings and make each and every character you see fall in love with someone in the cutest way possible. Jesse’s Girl is no exception. She combines music and love into one cute adorable romance.

Get ready to fall for pretty much all of Miranda’s characters.. And I’m not saying they’re all perfect beings either. They’re human and make mistakes, but it’s what they do about it that makes her stories so memorable.


Oh my God, I love ketchup too! We have so much in common.
What am I doing wrong? Why don’t I belong anywhere?
Everyone always wants something.
Family should support you no matter what, but I guess sometimes that doesn’t happen.
Why is it that as soon as I place my faith in others that trust disappears in a second?
If I want to become something, I need to work a lot harder.
If you love something enough, want it bad enough, you should be willing to go after it on your own.
Family can’t always help fix a difficult situation, and everybody makes mistakes. We shouldn’t expect perfect. But we can hope that the people we love, love us enough to try to make it right.
