The summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of freedom - but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the guys...in their house.
Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling star. The SAS guys aren't happy with the situation, either. Bad boy Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can't escape Emery's fangirlisms for more than three minutes.
But after the super-cute Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being "out of this world." If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn't want to come back to Earth.
American Girl on Saturn is the story of one famous boyband and their lockdown in the house with 2 teenage daughters and one 5 year old Saturnite,who might just be their biggest fan,a secret agent dad,crafty mom and a fake butler.
With five boys and 3 girls in lockdown,there is at least one match sure to light and get the fire started.
I liked all the Characters, but I particularly liked Chloe and Milo.The reason is simple, they are mature for their age.Do note that I said mature,NOT boring.Some people tend to get confused on this difference.
I liked Jules drama and expected it in a way.Also the reality-like feel of the book with all the gossip,false stories,rumours and references to actual bands and singers.
The whole story was really entertaining and captivating.Read the whole thing in a sitting(with just a little pause to tweet about the book, but that doesn't count,right?)
As the story progresses we get to know the boys better with fake twitter feeds on the fridge,Twister games,a 5 -year -old -girl -made -us -do -it activities and the most exciting for me : Secret dates at midnight or Sunset.
American Girl on Saturn blew me away to a Saturnite Land where there is a mansion with 5 really cute boys and 3 girls and lockdown and an infinite supply of Oreos and strawberry milk with no way back, not that I mind.
My only regret is not knowing if there is more on this Saturnite Land to explore and my
I recommend this book to those who like: romance,YA,summer fun,boybands,secret crushes,and boyfriends,a summer read and the list goes on...
I have to say,this was my favorite bookof this past summer !
