I loved this book which meant that I couldn't put it down! It's a sweet and heartfelt story of a small town girl "dating" a Hollywood star. The book takes place in Little, CA - AKA the best of Nevada City and Grass Valley mashed into one charming small town.

*Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carter's town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adam's girlfriend while he's in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isn't at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between what's real and what's fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

I was happily surprised at how much I enjoyed Life and Death. Stephenie Meyer's writing has grown and matured since she originally wrote Twilight and it shows, with the care and respect she's shown with the gender swap in Life and Death. She answers some great "what ifs" in this one book. (And there will only be one book, that is my only hint as to what she has up her book sleeves.)
