from Goodreads:
Madison Daley’s father has concealed the truth from her for seventeen years…

Raised on a Kentucky farm, Madison is stunned when a conversational slip reveals her father Michael is a famous ’90s rock star known as the Grim Weeper. Michael left the spotlight and his mansion behind when Madison was dropped off on his doorstep by a woman in a black mask. A dark past is revealed, and the only thing Madison isn’t allowed to know is her mother’s name.

The answers Madison needs can only be found in Beverly Hills…

Though she does hope to persuade her dad to return to the stage, Madison’s real mission is to discover the identity of her mother.

But she is slightly distracted—literally—by the boy next door. Giovanni Abate’s father is an action film star, his stepdad is a major designer, and Gio has his own claim to fame. Madison catches the handsome, young Italian actor’s eye, and their mutual attraction makes for a hotter summer than she ever could have imagined.

Madison hasn’t set foot in California since infancy, but a lot of people are certain she has…

After Madison has a makeover, people are sure they’ve seen her somewhere before, and she is extremely curious about the identity of her supposed doppelganger. As she looks into this strange situation, she’s unaware that Gio is hiding a potentially devastating secret.

Could finding the answers she seeks change Madison’s life forever?

Or will it just lead to more questions to fill the…

isn’t who you truly are…”


My Review
This reminded me of the movie The Parent Trap back before Lindsey Lohan became Lindsey Lohan. Well saying that may have been a bit of a spoiler but not really. Anyway...

Madison is living in rural Kentucky. She isn't allowed to basically have a life outside her home. When one of her father let slip a secret her life takes a dramatic change. Her dad was a famous rock singer. He did the very thing she wants to do. And to top things off her mother is someone she actually knows.

It's a enjoyable read. I liked Madison and Gio. I think she made a mistake there. I like the way things unfolded. I think having her so sheltered affected the way she handle certain things. I also think wanting a connection with her mother also influenced her decisions. The book ends in a cliffhanger but book two seems like it will keep the action going as things with the new found family isn't what it seems.
