Summary (from

My Review:

What is it about a story with a rock star that gets to me every time? This was such a sweet story with a feel-good ending.

Libby has lived a hard couple of years after the death of her mother and sister and then having her father abandon her, leaving her to live with her low life aunt. With no friends and no true family there for her, she lives her life dreaming of the day her father will return for her and life will be okay again.

After an uncharacteristic meeting of Peter, a member of a famous band, Libby finds herself now dreaming of a boy she never before knew existed.

This book receives 5 stars in my book, not because it was perfectly written, but because it was a good story, I couldn't put it down, it held enough emotion to bring actual tears to my eyes, and I got an ending I was happy with.
