Series: Hundred Oaks
Author: Miranda Kenneally
Published: July 2015
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.
But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?

Ana and Celeste will put Jesse’s Girl on their 2nd shelf
Celeste: 4.5 stars Oh I loved this! Jesse’s Girl was one of those stories that was pure magic for me. It was magic for many reasons, but mostly because of how it made me feel. I felt young and totally found myself falling in love…and that’s because Ms. Kenneally’s words transported me from page 1. Jesse and Maya’s story totally drew me in, and without even realizing it I found that I so effortlessly got absorbed and didn’t stop reading until I was done…right there, that tells me it’s a top notch book, that tells me the author has a really special gift.
