Review: Someone Else's Fairytale
Someone Else's Fairytale by Emily Mah Tippetts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Someone Else’s Fairytale beings with Chloe Winters and her two friends Matthew and Lori; they are heading to their college to be extras in a movie. Chloe does not find this fun at all, and would much rather be somewhere else. All the girls are screaming and swooning over Jason Vanderholt, but not Chloe. When Jason stops in front of Chloe he starts asking questions, she is reluctant, and could care less if he knows some of her family. From then on Jason goes out of his way to talk and hang out with her.
Chloe is hard working and determined to do well in school and get into grad school. She has had a rough childhood, but somehow still manages to smile. You learn about her past and about her “family”, which is something she hates to discuss. Something about Chloe is she does not “hook up”, and is pretty much saving herself. She has had issues in the past were people ended up leaving because of this.
Jason is an actor and popular with the ladies. His character was sweet, charming, and nice. To be an actor he was not cocky, and tried his hardest to get Chloe to notice him. His family was incredible. They were all family orientated. However, he also has a past, which has shaped his character.
I enjoyed this book and how real the characters were. All the characters in the book were great, and I loved how Chloe and Jason never assumed anything but would talk everything out. The story was wonderful, and I had moments where I wanted to take her place in the book! It was a sweet read and had a fairytale touch to it; definitely did not want the book to end. I recommend this book to everyone, you will not regret it!
