Keatyn Chronicles

 5 of 5 stars false 
Gossip girl meets Hollywood in this new series by That Boy author, Jillian Dodd.
Keatyn has everything she ever dreamed of. Her life is following the script she wrote for the perfect high school experience. She’s popular, goes to the best parties, dates the hottest guy, and sits at the most coveted lunch table. 
She’s just not sure she wants it anymore.
Because really, things aren’t all that perfect.
Her best friend is threatening to tell everyone her perfect relationship is a scam.
Her perfect boyfriend gets drunk at every party they go to.
It’s exhausting always trying to look and act perfect.
And deep down, she isn’t sure if she has any true friends.
To add to the drama, her movie star mom’s long-time fan has turned stalker.
An older man is flirting with her and telling her they should make a movie together.
And she’s crushing on an adorable surfer. Dating a guy like him would mean committing social suicide.
So she writes a new script. One where all the pieces of her life will come together in perfect harmony.
But little does she know, there’s someone who will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Keatyn has the perfect life on paper, the perfect boyfriend, good friends and popular. In reality her boyfriend always gets drunk, her friends may only like her because Keatyns mom is a superstar and popularity is not all it's cracked up to be. I loved this book, it was funny without trying to be with lots of drama without being to serious. I really enjoyed how Jillian merged the script that Keatyn wrote for her life with the book. The characters ranged from lovable and caring to bitchy and selfish. I started reading this book; before I knew it I was caught up in the story and cared about the characters. There was so much going on in this book, but it wasn't to busy and was really easy to follow. I am a bit burned out on love triangles, but this one was done is such a way that I didn't feel like it was a repeat of other ones I had seen. While I normally loathe cliffhangers I already have the next book so it did not bug me.  I think anybody over the age of sixteen is going to love this book.

 I've always written scripts for my perfect life.
But no way could I have ever scripted this.
My life is so far from perfect, it’s not even funny.
All because of a stalker.
I’m at a boarding school where I have to lie about who I am.
I can’t see my family.
I’m tutoring a Hottie God that tortures me with his smile.
The most popular girl already hates me.
But there’s this boy.
This hot, sweet, sexy boy.
So I’m going to stop trying to script my life and just live it.
Because who knows how long I have left.

Kiss Me is the second book in the Keatyn chronicles and starts right where Stalk Me left off, Keatyn is away at a boarding school. She can't talk to any of her friends; she is in a new place and has all new problems. The queen bee of the school hates her, the hottest guy likes her and she still has to worry about the stalker. I was once again sucked into the story that is Keatyns life, but I missed all the characters from the first book. It was nice to get new characters; it just took me a little while to start liking these new characters. The new boy problems were the same as the old ones;  but the new boys were just different enough from the old ones that it was fresh instead of a repeat. I still really liked the book; it was full of humor and showed how Keatyn has grown up a little bit. Jillian wrote another great story with wonderful characters. I want to say more about this book but I don't want to give anything away, so I will just say that this was a wonderful book and I can't wait to read the next one.
