The summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of freedom - but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the guys...in their house.
Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling star. The SAS guys aren't happy with the situation, either. Bad boy Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can't escape Emery's fangirlisms for more than three minutes.
But after the super-cute Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being "out of this world." If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn't want to come back to Earth.
This book gave me so many fangirl feels!!! So please forgive me for some spoilers! \(^o^)/
The famous boyband Spaceships Around Saturn was attacked during one of their concerts and was needed to be put on some sort of witness protection. A summer on lockdown: Away from the stage, away from their fans, away from the media, away from their family and friends. Because of this, the Bransen sisters' summer plans will be ruined, well, atleast for Chloe.
Chloe's father is a government security agent and he volunteered their house as the safe house of the boys while they follow the leads. Chloe has two youger sisters, Aralie and Emery. Emery, five years old, is the biggest fan of SAS. She's an ultimate Saturnite (that's what SAS fans are called) and they knew that the kid couldn't keep her mouth shut about this so they too were on a lockdown.
"You think Emery will actually keep her mouth when Benji Bikini is in the house? The world will know in three minutes with her mouth."
I didn't expect to love Amrerican Girl On Saturn this much so let me tell you some of the things I love most about Spaceships Around Saturn:
1. Emery. Seriously, at the age of five?! She's THAT obssessed with a boyband. I love how she clings to Benji like she's an extra limb of him. Of course, I also love how Benji tolerates the little girl.
2. Aralie. She's my kind of sister. She's always there for Chloe and she'll do everything she can to comfort and protect her when someone made her cry or pisses her off. She's a sister-plus-bestfriend-combo for Chloe.
3. Milo Grayson -- the sweet, serious-type boy with the caramel eyes. I can't say anything else. I just want to smell him and his body wash.
"This boy is so beautiful that I'd take him to a five-star formal restaurant in swim trunks and flip flops. He's modest, though, which makes him even more likable. Damn him."
4. The Oreos and milk private party Milo and Chloe shared. Eeeep!! I don't even know how I would feel if a cute boy joins me and my cookies in the middle of the night. It'd be too awkward to start a conversation. I'd be speechless.
"It's after midnight, and I'm alone with a pretty girl and Oreos. That's definitely a party," he says. "The only thing I'm missing is a glass of milk, so if you'd point me in the right direction, we can get this party underway."
5. The fireflies moment. Please, please, please READ this book! Especially this scene!!! It'll give you butterflies on your stomach! Much more than you can imagine!
“My wish is for you to be my firefly. After lockdown ends, we'll only see each other in moments, for short flickers of time.”
GUYS. This is a book every boyband fangirl needs! IT'S A MUST READ. I can't believe I didn't read it before! This book made me laugh, made me cry, made me toss and turn to every romantic scene. It gave me all the feels a fangirl can feel if her favorite boyband is in the house! I recommend this to EVERYBODY. I LOVE YOU, NIKKI GODWIN.
PLEASE CHECK OUT FABERDRIVE AND ALL TIME LOW'S MUSIC. PLUS, THEY'RE CUTE. AND HANDSOME. AND THEIR VOICE. OH. MY. SATURN.
|THE ULTIMATE PANDA LOVE!!!|
