This Is Us For Tonight by Jessica Patrick
It's been a long time since I've read such a good contemporary story. I giggled and cried and felt all the feels... it's just an awesome book!
Andi needs money. She wants to go to the same school as her twin, she feels like she needs to keep him in check, but for that, she needs money & fast. She has a small crafting youtube channel, that doesn't bring that much money. Andi and her brother go to the music festival, she hopes she can film some kind of video that will make her go viral, but nothing feels right. The first night, when the brother ditches her, a hot strange help her. It's not until the next morning that she realized that it is Jay Banker. He has the worst prank channel and she hates him and his videos very, very much.
She joins a scavenger hunt, where the winner gets to interview a band, the interview that could blow up her channel. The only downside, Jay and his brother join it too.
Along the way, the more time she spends with him, the more she discovered that there is a lot more to him, that just that is shown on youtube and soon falls for him.
It's an awesomely swoon-worthy love story, but not just that, there is friendship, wishing for independence, and lots of growing up that happens over a very short time.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the story. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. It's intense, it's funny and romantic and oh so good. :)
When Andi attends a music festival with one goal in mind – capture an interview with a famous band so she can pay for college – she gets more than she bargained for in this YA novel about family ties and finding your own way.
Andi Kennedy needs to make money for college, and fast. But her little YouTube crafting channel, while fun, isn’t exactly a money maker. So she’s heading to the world-famous Cabazon Valley Music and Arts Festival with a goal – film a video that will launch her channel into popularity and turn it into a legit money making venture, even if it means selling out her creative vision.
Instead, she finds obnoxious Jay Bankar, the annoyingly hot host of a popular prank channel who is the actual worst. Andi hates everything Jay stands for, which makes the undeniable connection she feels with him really freaking inconvenient. Soon she finds herself competing with Jay for an interview with the festival’s headlining band, which could be the key to turning her little channel directly into college tuition. But she’s starting to discover that there is more to Jay than his jerky on-screen persona, and she has to decide what’s more important – winning, or giving a second chance to a guy who couldn’t be more wrong for her.
