Practice Makes Perfect.

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?


The first book I read by was Breathe Annie Breathe and a LOVED it. There was just so much to that story to make it as touching as it was. Now Jesse’s Girl was just as amazing, but in a different way.

Both Maya and Jesse were very realistic going through realistic situations. I mean I know at one time or another we have all been hooking up with a guy to find out he really likes someone else. The high school experiences are relatable, but not every school has a shadow day (I wish I had one of those days). I can also see Jesse’s situations to be very realistic as well. I can see him struggling with knowing who he can trust and who he can’t.

The secondary characters were just as great as Maya and Jesse. I loved Maya’s parents, Dave, Annie, Sam, Jordan and Jesse’s uncle. I also like that some of the characters were LGBTQ, maybe they will end up getting book!

I love that the books in the Hundred Oaks series can be read as stand alones. I now need to get my hands on all the other books! I know I now want to read Jordan and Sam’s stories.
