Review: The Secret Crush a Mackenzie Blue book #2 by Tina Wells

Synopsis (from Barnes and Noble):

Mackenzie Blue has a crush!

But how can she get Landon—the cutest boy in school—to notice her? The class's new rock-and-roll musical is her chance.

Reasons why our musical is going to be amazing:

  1. I could be the star!
  2. Landon could be my co-star . . . which means we'll hang out together.
  3. Working on the sets, props, music, script, and costumes will be tons of fun.

There's so much to do, I'd better get started!

Between her crush, the musical, and her friends—not to mention school work—Zee is torn in a thousand different directions. With all the real-life drama going on, will she lose sight of what's really important?

Book Details:

Format: Hardcover

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Pub. Date: December 2009

Pages: 226

My Review:

The Secret Crush is the second book in the Mackenzie Blue Series. I have to say it was more fun to read than the first book. Maybe because I just like to read books that deal with crushes. I also loved the cute little pictures throughout the book, again the pictures were something to look forward to while reading.

Remember when you were in middle school you started to feel embarrassed to be seen with your parents? Zee, the main character, is at that stage in her life. It was nice to see how Zee transforms in the novel. This book points out that parents have your best interests at heart.

The things I didn't like was that Zee was so blind to realize that her admirer was someone close to her. In my mind a lot of us girls are quick tell if someone likes us as more than a friend. The last thing I didn't like was that some parts seemed too dramatic.

Another good point made in the book was that when you are so focused on one thing it can cause you to fail in other areas of life.

Overall The Secret Crush is a quick and fun read. Everyone will enjoy this book. Young or old it doesn't matter.

4 Stars!
