In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety by Krysten Lindsay Hager
Cecily wants a big life, but can she handle it?
Cecily feels like she has it all: great best friends, the beginnings of a career as a model/actress, and she’s dating her favorite singer, Andrew Holiday. Then Cecily’s best friend Lila begins to ditch her every time Lila’s boyfriend calls. Cecily feels lost, but she and Andrew begin connecting more and she’s never been in a relationship where she felt so understood. Andrew even begins to confide in her about his anxiety. Soon Cecily experiences her own anxiety on a magazine photo shoot, but she manages to impress the magazine staff. Just when it seems like all her dreams are coming true, everything comes crashing down when a photo of Andrew with another girl appears online. He swears nothing happened, but Cecily is crushed. She feels like she’s lost two of the people closest to her.
Was her perfect relationship real or was she in over her head?
Karen Meyer’s Review: 4.5-Stars
This is a fun book for junior high to high school girls. The characters were very well developed and the story line consistent and flowed easily. I liked the spiritual aspects of it and feel like it gave some dimension to the story itself. I was so glad it ended well, but was hoping for a ring on her finger before the end of the book. I am a hopeless romantic so that’s just me.
I really enjoyed the book and felt like it will help girls see themselves through the main character and understand more about jealousy, self-esteem, and teenage crushes.
Elkin Hardcoves’ Review: 4.5-Stars
In this sequel to “Can dreams come true, “in which we catch up with Cecily and see how she’s coping with her new found fame and romance. That’s all I’m going to say on the plot as if you haven’t read the first book in the series, I have, then you would know Cecily was in a predicament as to where her heart lay and I don’t want to spoil anything. It isn’t absolutely necessary to read that book to follow this one, but it does help, some, a little.
In this book she’s made her choice, now she has to face the consequences of that choice and the secrets, ups and downs anxiety and drama that come with it, and the anxieties she faces are a bit tough.
But Cecily is no different to any teen except being in the spotlight of course, but she still has the teenage angst, anxieties, friendship issues, drama which makes her a relatable character.
In Over Her Head: Lights, Camera, Anxiety is a Sweet Romance, it’s very suitable for YA readers, there is no explicit scenes it’s very much a clean sweet Romance. But do expect teen drama, anxiety and angst.
It’s a lovely follow on from the first book. It was nice to see Cecily grow as a young teenager and I think she will be relatable to the target audience. This is the perfect series if you are looking for a
Heart Warming, Fun, Sweet Contemporary Romance which is more than suitable for the YA Readers.
