Seventeen year old Jessica has moved from her small town to London. Her life there is okay but the one thing keeping her going was Kennedy Orr. Jessica has a boyfriend, Steve, but he's always wanting to watch television. Jessica's fantasies get richer and fuller each time she sees Kennedy Orr perform in Marina in a Green Dress. Feeling she knows Kennedy so well, Jessica writes a letter to him one evening while at Steve's house. Steve get jealous and decides to teach Jessica a lesson. He mails the letter to Kennedy Orr. Jessica isn't sure whether to be grateful or horrified. Then she gets the chance to meet Kennedy and it's a very surreal situation. Much to Jessica's surprise Kennedy keeps calling her and spending time with her. Steve is worried now and trying to find a way to burst this fantasy bubble Jessica created.
Jessica's fairy tale comes true but was it everything she thought it would be? Alan Davidson does such a beautiful job of weaving this story with honesty and a good dose of common sense. The characters seem to pop off the page as you get to know them. I highly recommend this YA book for everyone! You'll enjoy this story of coming face to face with the object of your affections and the growing up that happens as a result. I enjoyed this book very much.
I only found one issue. The book seems to be a little slow moving in the beginning but more than makes up for it by the end.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars because while the beginning was slow and it was made up for in the end, there were some moments of "is this creepy or cool".
