(YA Contemporary)by Angie Stanton
Marti Hunter hates rockers and anything remotely related to the rock-and-roll lifestyle. She thought she’d left that all behind, along with her drug-addicted mother and absent-minded rock legend father. Now she lives with her grandmother, and Marti’s life is finally normal. Just the way she likes it.
For Adam Jamieson, normal is not possible. He is the genius guitar player of the band Jamieson. He’s ecstatic to finally get a two-week break from his micromanaged life and a chance to hang with regular teens. Adam’s shaving off his trademark curls and going undercover.
But when Marti, the reluctant rock princess, and Adam, the undercover guitar wizard, meet, sparks fly in more ways than one. They spend their time alternating between making out and driving each other crazy. But their summer adventures of skinny dipping, storm watching, and stolen kisses are brought to a halt when tragedy strikes.
Suddenly, they’re on opposite sides of the country, just when they need each other the most. Can Marti survive life with her dad and his vicious girlfriend? Will Adam get so fed up with his over-managed life and controlling parents that he quits the band?
Snapshot. A moment in time that changes two people forever.
First off I want to start to say that I love Angie Stanton book especially Rock and a Hard Place which is the story of Peter and Libby where I fell in love with them and wanted to find out more of the Jamieson family.
In this story it is about Peter's little brother Adam and his journey of finding his own way and his independence from his family. In this journey the older brother Garrett is still the big jerk he was in the first book. I am really hoping that there will be a third book about Garrett where hopefully he finds some love and happiness in his world and stops being so self centered.
With Adam and his love Marti you find their journey together cute and heartbreaking but you are routing for them the whole time. To see inside Marti's life of being a daughter of a rock n' roll legend is quite surprising. You just want her father to open up his eyes and to actually see his daughter and at the same time you are also wanting the Jamieson's to see and hear Adam as an important part of the family.
Loved how Adam's mom in the end saved the day for Marti and Adam. I really liked this book but I will be honest I did prefer Rock and a Hard place but Snapshot is not that far behind and can't wait to hear more in the story. I recommend this book to all and give it four thumbs up.
