It's their fault that she's in such a foul mood and she doesn't mince words when she tells them so. Of course, in YA fiction, Stella's rudeness is considered by the boys to be delightful because most girls would never yell at the objects of their fanatic affection.
Cue unexpected romance Mar 29, Ezinwanyi rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a cute story about Family, Health and Personal Growth. Stella, Drew and Cara are triplets who are close and they feel helpless because Cara isn't winning her battle with non Hodgkin lymphoma. When Cara's favorite boy band "The Heartbreakers" were in town, Stella and Drew decided to get her a signed poster from the band. Stella ended up meeting the lead Singer Oliver on her Starbucks run and they didn't know each other so they flirted with each other.
It started a romance between Stella and Oliver, it also helped Stella deal with her guilt about Cara's cancer and begin to make plans that didn't revolve around her sister's cancer. I love that the focus was on family, personal growth, the effect of cancer on the remaining family, the guilt, the fear of not being around in case your sick family member needed you etc. The romance was a sub plot and it was tastefully done.
I really liked this story. This is no way impacted in my view. The Heartbreakers was definitely a cutesy YA contemporary read. Like most others, there were fun times, and also sad, angsty moments, which I think are characteristic of YA contemporary novels. In this book we meet Stella, a triplet, whose sister, Cara, has stage IV cancer.
To try and deal with her own emotions through this ordeal, Stella turns to photography, which manages to change her life s I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. To try and deal with her own emotions through this ordeal, Stella turns to photography, which manages to change her life so much.
She meets Oliver Perry, the lead singer of the band The Heartbreakers, and somehow becomes in charge of running the photo blog for the band's tour. I really liked Stella's character. Though she was a triplet, all three of them had their own distinctive personality, and you could definitely see how much Stella cared for her siblings in the book.
Her interactions with the other characters were really enjoyable too, especially with each of the 4 band members, as they all meant so,etching different to Stella. She really brought out the best in each of them, and the character developments of all were beautiful. The fact that Stella was able to overcome her guilt on leaving Cara to join the tour, and that she began looking to what she wanted for the future, was especially noteworthy, as I don't believe she could have done any of this at the beginning of the novel.
The romance was wonderful between Stella and Oliver. As I've already said, there were some angsty moments in the book, mainly to do with this romance, but all came out alright in the end.
By the end of the book, Stella was like a fully fledged member of The Heartbreakers, and each band member cared for her just as much as she did for them - they were a proper family. Cara, Stella, and Drew were just what I'd imagine triplets would be like - all their own person, but would do just about anything for their sibling, as shown often in the book.
I've previously read Novak's other book, My Life with the Walter Boys, and this one was definitely my favourite of the two.
I much preferred the setting and plot in The Heartbreakers, and I feel as if you can tell that this is a later book, as the writing has definitely become more developed and stronger. Overall I enjoyed the plot of the story, though it was quite obvious what was going to happen next at times, and loved the characters.
I'm quite looking forward to further books in this series. If you are looking for an interesting, yet extremely quirky book to make you laugh this summer, The Heartbreakers is for you. The plot is a little far fetched but, I was able to see past this and enjoy the fun that this book has to offer.
The Heartbreakers has everything: The Heartbreakers is a slightly unrealistic book, which is probably why I enjoyed it! The plot is so unbelievable that I just had to laugh.
Ho If you are looking for an interesting, yet extremely quirky book to make you laugh this summer, The Heartbreakers is for you.
Honestly, what are the chances that a famous musician happens to be in a Starbucks when you walk in and also appears with his band in the elevator you are in? Once the story gets going though, the book becomes a little more believable. I found the plot to be endearing, but I definitely see others having a hard time with the start of this story. When I first picked up the book, I expected it to focus on the cancer, making the book depressing to read. Cara, however, is such an optimistic character that is so refreshing to read about.
There are only a few chapters that mention it, but Cara is very relevant to the plot and causes some major plot twists.
Stella is such an enjoyable narrator for The Heartbreakers. She is clever, sassy, and very supportive of others, such as her sister.
When she is hired to be a photographer for The Heartbreakers, she does her job efficiently and well. Stella does doubt herself a lot, though. As the story progresses, Stella slowly gains confidence and her personality really shines through.
This is a fun, quick read that is perfect for a lazy summer day. Aug 09, Yuli Atta - Damaged Pages rated it liked it. There is a time when I want to read something like this to remind me of the time when I loved reading various fanfictions.
This book is good. But I will always consider it a fanfiction. It is just so similar and yet I really liked it. Really, really adorable. I was not expecting this to be as emotional as it was.
Definitely a cute contemporary worth picking up. Full review to come. This is one of the most unrealistic books I have ever in my life read. It is so improbable. There were some cute moments, but they were drowned out by the fact that these cute moments have about a 0.
First off, how Stella meets Oliver Perry twice within such a short span of time without actually trying is beyond me.
I couldn't even find a celebrity if I tried. Let alone twice I'm bending the definition of normal when it comes to their second conversation. On that note, let's get on to the second point. And snobs. Notice that I haven't listed 'girlfriend material' on this list. Don't date them.
I swear, where is their sensibility? Actually, forget sensibility, where is their security? If the girl who had just gotten done yelling at you in an elevator came up to your hotel room and wanted to talk to you Especially when you're famous and there is a possibility they are psycho? And then they have a nice fun session in the pool and such. At this point I was beyond skeptical. It was at this time that I realized that the Heartbreakers are, in this literary world, the most laid back and stupid boy band to ever grace the music industry.
She's plain. She's boring, as a character, but there's like one redeeming feature about her that's supposed to make her 'different' from those other girls. In this case, she likes photography.
She doesn't sound all that great at it, so how she impresses everyone is beyond me. Everyone always has to tell her how great she is because she, herself, has absolutely no clue. Stella was pretty awful to read about. I actually liked Oliver in a way, though I still think he is a piss-poor example of what any normal pop star would do when presented with the series of events that happen in this book. He's nice, and troubled, but not in a creepy way, but in a 'I want to help you poor baby' way, and welllll The Heartbreakers should have ended with Stella being carried out by security.
It should not have been a romance. I rest my case. What is it about rock stars that appeal to almost everyone?
Whether in young adult reads, new adult, or just plain old adult, they just are appealing to so many of us. This story was about a rock star, a band, and of course, a girl. But more than that this story went deeper. It was about families, and love, taking chances, and living life to the fullest, and loving those around us and being strong for those that need us to be without losing ourselves in the process.
It was about chasing our drea What is it about rock stars that appeal to almost everyone? It was about chasing our dreams and making them happen and for that, I can say I loved this story. I honest wasn't expecting any deep meaningful thoughts or opinions when I started this. Instead I thought it would be a light hearted, fun, quick read and it was that too, It had a lot of light funny moments and even sweet moments that broke up the sadness and really was a perfect balance of seriousness and fun all in one.
Yes there were some familiar tropes and cliches, but overall, I really had fun with this read and even got teary eyed a time or two. Overall, this was a fun, quick read with meaning and I would definitely read the next book. Kristina Z Jan 29, Chelsea chelseadolling reads rated it liked it. Listened to the audiobook of this while re-organizing my bookshelves and it was a perfect fit. I have to admit, I'm surprised by how not-terrible this was. I thought it was going to be super cheesy and stupid, but for what it was, it was pretty damn cute.
Would I recommend it? Probably not. But I'm definitely not mad about it. Rockstar and a regular girl. Review 1 1 7 Sep 16, The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak 1 5 Aug 08, Readers Also Enjoyed.

It's a hard, unforgiving son of a bitch, and when it steamrolls you over, there are two choices: Welcome back. I didn't feel like I connected with the main characters as much as I did with the couple from the first story.
Alec was so closed off and emotionless that it was hard to tell how he was feeling about anything. I think the author was going for the shy, "mysterious" type but he just came off kind of flat to me.
Felicity is hard-working, money-conscious and very focused on her education. She had a lot of drama going on around her to focus on, and I just didn't end up feeling any spark between them at all. I feel like I ended up loving the secondary characters more than the main characters in this one.
I was more interested in Boomer and Asha's relationship than Alec and Felicity's. Too bad she'll never see him again.
Except, Stella's life has suddenly turned into a cheesy love song. And even after she calls his music crap, Oliver still gives Stella his phone number. And whispers quotes from her favorite Disney movie in her ear. OMG, what is her life?
