Format: Paperback
Hadley's life seems to be a lot better now that she's living in Grand Haven. She has several great new friends, she can see her grandparents and favorite aunt as often as she likes and she also has a boyfriend, Nick. Nick is a great guy, he's handsome and he's sweet. He and Hadley are really good friends as well and they can talk about anything. Their relationship isn't perfect though, because Hadly isn't the only girl who likes Nick. There are several other girls who would love to date him. One of them is former TV star Simone Hendrickson. How can Hadley compete with someone who's famous, who looks perfect and who used to be Nick's biggest crush?

Krysten Lindsay Hager's stories are always realistic. Everything that happens could have actually happened in real life. Things are never over the top and they don't have to be. She writes about friendship, first boyfriends and the good and bad sides of life in a beautiful way. Hadley is kind and caring and the same goes for Nick. He loves his grandfather very much and there's an amazing scene in a retirement home that brought tears to my eyes. There's a good balance between happy and sad moments which keeps the story genuine.

Hadley is a little bit insecure and dealing with friend and boyfriend trouble is tough. Especially since she hasn't had much time to decide where her loyalties lie because she's just moved to a new town. Believing either the guy you like or the girl you look up to isn't an easy decision and it was interesting to see what she would do. Sometimes it's a struggle to grow up, especially when there are so many new impressions and people to connect with. I liked the subject and Krysten Lindsay Hager's vivid way of writing makes the story come to life really well.

Competing With the Star - Krysten Lindsay Hager
Even though I haven’t read the first book in the star series, I found it easy to understand the characters and the relationships. Hadley our teenage heroine has many of the insecurities, which inflict most of us at this young age. Teenage girls often fall into two groups; the ‘mean girls’, who hide their self esteem issues by putting down their peers and the shy girls who shun the limelight, in case they fall victim to the ‘mean girls’.
Hadley is in the second group but she has strong values and a kind heart and is an easy character to root for. Nick, her first boyfriend is also one of the good ones. Not an out and out heart breaker; he tries to do the right thing but like all teenage boys is often swayed by the obvious.
The story is simple but emphasises what’s important to teens nicely and communicates the angst and drama of the teen years in a realistic believable way. I liked the additional dimension of the grandparents in this book. Teens often find it easier to communicate with their grandparents than parents and this relationship showed important character development for Hadley and Nick.
A lovely story, with some good lessons about friendship, self-esteem and relationships, perfectly pitched for teen/young adult readers.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

HASH(0x8fcb5fd8) out of 5 stars Great message for teen girls! 8 April 2016
By Laura Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really love this author and these characters. The greatest thing about her books is that she has this wonderful ability to let you hear her main character's inner dialogue. The story gives you so much insight into the minds of teenage girls and makes you realize that deep down, everyone has the same insecurities and everyone goes through the same things in life. Despite these insecurities and fears, the main character stands up for herself. This is such an important message for teen girls! You can be smart, and strong, and brave even if you don't always feel that way on the outside. I would recommend this book to anyone.

HASH(0x8fec2624) out of 5 stars A great YA read! 24 Mar. 2016
By JBJNYG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It’s Hadley Daniels’s sophomore year of high school, and she is finally getting established in Grand Haven, Michigan. She has a small group of friends and, oh yeah, she also has a hot boyfriend named Nick Jenkins. Things seem to be going great until she learns Nick apparently had a past with her friend, and former TV star, Simone Hendrickson. How can she possibly compete with that!? She doesn’t want to be anyone’s second choice. Can she believe Nick when he tells her that nothing happened with Simone? Will Hadley’s insecurities cause her to ruin a potentially great relationship with Nick, who apparently has his own insecurities over their relationship?

This is second in Hager’s “The Star Series.” She totally nails all the emotions, insecurities, mental obsessions, and eye rolls which are typical of this age group. With such true-to-life characters, it is hard to believe at times that an adult wrote it instead of someone currently going through these very issues. The character dynamics are great, and this is a quick, easy read. It is best to read the stories in order to fully appreciate the strong character development, and the pace is even throughout. I was glad to see Charlotte utilized a bit more in this book than she was in the first one. Many of the scenes may give the adult reader flashbacks to their own sophomore year in high school and leave them feeling thankful that those years are in the past. I really enjoyed how Hager allowed Nick to show his insecurities. Though they are stereotypically attributed to females, males have them as well, and it was nice to see them incorporated into this story. Hager, through her characters, admirably educates the reader on Lewy body dementia, a little-known disease.

HASH(0x8fec2594) out of 5 stars but was able to follow the plot pretty easily. This is a nice 1 April 2016
By Edye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I haven't read the first book in this series, but was able to follow the plot pretty easily. This is a nice, light hearted, coming of age story. It's a short book and has a very relatable plot. I think this book is perfect for people in middle school and up. It touches on first love/boyfriends, growing up and self discovery. Overall, it was a sweet, enjoyable read.

Competing With The Star is the second book in a series. I advise you to read Next Door To A Star first. It isn't a must, but it makes you understand the story a little bit better. It was fun to read more about the same characters. I love this series and highly recommend it to both teenagers and adults. For me Krysten Lindsay Hager's books always mean a wonderful trip down memory lane.

HASH(0x8fec2564) out of 5 stars You don't have to be a star, baby 15 May 2016
By Vox Libris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If drama-fueled YA is your thing, this is the book for you.

Hadley and her family moved before her sophomore year of high school, but she has acclimated herself pretty well into her new Michigan lake-side town. For starters, she has a boyfriend: Nick, possibly the hottest guy in school.

Hadley is nothing if not a high school girl, though, so of course she's a bit insecure when it comes to Nick. He's had his share of gorgeous, popular girlfriends, and Hadley struggles with wondering what he sees in her. She completely ignores the signals he sends her: he holds her hand publicly. he singles her out publicly, and the boy all but drops on bended knee and declares his love. This makes her not unlike most girls her age: the boy's voice matters only a fraction of the voices of her friends.

You will wonder why Nick persists and what makes him think Hadley is worth it. She's fine - she's real, she isn't a girl who pretends to be something she isn't, and she's kind - but she doesn't really listen to him. She listens to everyone else instead.

Teen girls will love this story. They will relate to the friends and faux-friends, and they will lap up the fairytale. Krysten Lindsay Hager infuses the story with realistic elements that make it all the more pertinent to her audience.

It's a sweet teen romance.
