This is a YA Short Story.
Mira did not know what she had in store the day she fell asleep while wanting to escape her current situation. Overcoming the death of someone close and burying herself in school and an internship has kept her somewhat awake and alive. An admiration for the actor James Dean was all that kept the memory of her father alive. If she couldn’t be with her father, she could at least remember what they shared. She always wanted to meet James Dean. Be careful what you wish for. It may just come true.
Note: I received a free audiobook in return for an honest review.
This was my first audiobook and I jumped on the chance of getting a free one in exchange for review. Let me say, it is very short. 30 minute listen, 18 pages. Also, it is a HEA so don’t worry about that. I can’t say much since its very short and I’ll just end up giving away the whole story.
One name- James Dean. That’s all you need to know.
This book literally preaches James Dean. It starts with Mira thinking about her dad who died a couple years back and how they both loved James Dean. Then comes a whole lot of “James Dean this and James Dean that” which I wanted to skip but couldn’t since I was listening and not reading. She falls asleep and wakes up back in time when James was a young lad.
Spoiler alert: she wakes up back in her time.
Surreal, too fast-paced.
Before I knew it, they were kissing and he told her she’s his angel! Too damn fast. I didn’t like that at all. Honestly, I didn’t like the characters as well. The amount of compliments and love over James just made me not like him.
Give it a pass. Unless you’re very in love with James Dean and he is your God. Then you’ll love this.
