Stars Collide: A Novel (Backstage Pass) 
 Stars Collide: A Novel (Backstage Pass) 

From the publisher:

In Stars Collide, Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don't just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom—they are also head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps.
But when Kat's grandmother, an aging Hollywood starlet with a penchant for wearing elaborate evening gowns from Golden Age movies, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of their control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids tomorrow? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed in-laws?
My Review:

Stars Collide is a very interesting book!  I love that the author named all the chapters after a television show.   From the very beginning, the book was entertaining and simply a delight. 
The Grandmother, who was an older actress, kept the book alive.  I kept thinking of what I would do if I had been Kat in her position.  This book made me think of the future - that is for sure!  I gleaned a lot from Kat's actions.
 I would want to see Hollywood in real life, as presented in this book.  If people would realize that their actions affect more people than themselves - what a difference it would make in so many lives.  
This book did have an issue that might not be suitable for young readers.   That said, I would still love for this book to come into a short movie - it would be a sweet encouraging chick flick!

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
