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.
Oh my gosh!!! I don't know how can I express how much I enjoy reading this book, and you know what? the fangirling thing hidden inside of me suddenly took a peek! This book is so cool and cute and honestly, it is so fun to read. Reading this book brings so much joy to me. It makes me laugh and there's sadness at the same time. The book seems so far from every book that I've read.
Three girls together with their ordinary lives one summer break was thrilled when the five boys from SAS arrived in their house. Together, they are lockdown in one house because of the incident happened during the boyband's tour. Emery is a big fan of SAS, little Saturnite as they call her, she's really excited and happy when she found out about the lockdown. On the other hand, Aralie and Chloe, was shocked because they already have plans for the summer break. But then the summer didn't turned out that bad. Too many things changed between the three sisters and the band. They're fights and friendships also there is a new found love.
Crazy cool book, that's how I will define it. It's awesome and full of fun moments. I had mixed emotions to this, there's happiness, craziness and sadness you can feel it all over the book. It is really a good book, a great escape or should I say a good comfort zone? I wonder how will I feel if I was in a place together with my favorite band. I dunno exactly how will I react. Anyway, so much excitement and fangirling happened to this book. There are also my favorite guessing game for who will be the couples or best friends at the end of the story.
Thank you to Dianne for letting me join here, this is a great book to tour. I just hope everyone enjoyed the book. And to Nikki Godwin, I was so happy when I saw that she likes Simple Plan, I was like aaaahhhhh she's awesome!!! then when I read the first chapter I knew it already that you are a fan of One Direction. I'm not a directioner though but I'm a Simple Plan fan. I salute you for writing this.
