Close to Famous is an easy read, but still a great one. It is about a girl who bakes amazing cupcakes and her mom who is an amazing singer. Her mom was dating an Elvis impersonator who was a little crazy. They had to leave their home quickly to get away from him. When they stop in the tiny town of Culpepper, their lives change.  Find this item at Ames Public Library

Book Review
I was totally prepared to give this 3 stars, even leaning toward three and a half, and then came the ending. This book was alright (and even that's stretching it). I felt no connection to any characters and even though Fia has "perfect instincts", I felt like many times, she made the wrong decision. This idea could have worked, it was just really poorly written. There's a sequel coming out and I just don't know how you would add more to this plot. The naration was irritating and I frequently found myself groaning as the author repeating words of a sentence over and over in a way that wasn't even grammatically correct. It just wasn't a good book.  Find this item at Ames Public Library
