Emily Watts is about as average as an LA girl can be. She works, she hangs out with her friends, and she goes out on the weekends. But suddenly her life is turned on its ear when she becomes a media sensation overnight–literally. Dating should never be this hazardous, but it certainly becomes something to avoid as Emily gets caught in the media crossfire between her new rock star boyfriend and her good male friend who also happens to be a member of an up-and-coming band.
As the men start to manipulate her life, Emily has to get smart and learn a few tricks of her own in order to survive (and to protect her business). But life’s lessons are hard learned as Emily struggles to keep her web business afloat, her freelance projects viable, and her personal life in check.
Rock Star’s Girl is a crazy roller coaster of a ride of Emily’s life–personal and otherwise. Ms. Kristen does a remarkable job giving us candid insight of the social media frenzy that can start overnight and end just as suddenly. Emily is beautiful, smart, and savvy, but could be any one of us–ordinary girl turned web sensation all by association. But my favorite part is Emily herself, who suffers through verbal abuse from strangers, loss of friends and freedom, and somehow manages to get her life back on track with dignity and grace. Kudos to you, Emily, for being the girl we all want to be!
J.F. Kristin (Jennifer) has been writing since the day she picked up a navy blue Crayola as a toddler and began scribbling on her parents’ freshly painted white walls. When not writing novels, Jennifer writes about both writing and ecommerce, and previously spent a number of years as a freelance promotional writer and web designer for musicians. In the early days of the Web, she ran the Society for Preventing Parents from Naming Their Children Jennifer (SPPNTCJ), a tongue-in-cheek web site that welcomed millions of visitors during its run, received coverage from print, broadcast, and online media, was included in an academic textbook, and was studied on a college course. Jennifer is currently at work on her second novel.
