Becca Hudson has come a
long way since she was a tween starring in the sitcom Me Minus You, but
as far as she’s concerned, she finally has her act together. She’s
relocated to Leesburg, Virginia, owns a successful bakery, and has a
great set of friends—even a friendly ex-husband. She ignores “Whatever
Happened To?” speculation and the occasional overly obsessed fan, and
flatly turns down a lucrative offer to appear on a reality show called
Celebrities in Peril: Child Star Edition. She has an uncomfortable
relationship with her Hollywood past, preferring to think of herself as
more than a 1990s trivia question. Then one day a mysterious man appears
and stirs up her past—all of it—in ways she never imagined...
I don't really know quite how to review this, because there was just nothing in this book that excited me. The bakery aspect was what made me request the book, but that was just thrown in there I think to give the main character something to do. It seems like it could have been anything. I never felt anything for any of the characters or their situations. It all just seemed to happen and then the next thing happened, and the next, with very little emotion felt (at least by me).
