He needed a place to hide. She needed a friend. They never expected to fall in love. After a car accident - an event he considers a prank gone bad - jaded pop star Hunter Kennedy is forced to hide out with his aunt in small-town Colorado. He's supposed to rest, heal his scars, and attend high school in disguise until the press dies down. But he only wants to get back to work.
Worse, the girl who's been assigned to make him over into a geek is a major geek herself. Vere Roth is a chattering pixie - a blushing tornado and a complete social disaster. He's never met a girl who's never been kissed, believes in romance, and thinks Hunter's a "nice" guy.
Funny thing is...Hunter is nice around Vere because she's his first real friend. He also can't seem to stop sharing his secrets or keep her out of his heart. Knowing he'd never deserve a girl as sweet as Vere, he resigns himself to the friend zone and helps his new bestie with her own makeover.
She tortures him daily for guy advice on how to snag her lifelong crush: a guy Hunter thinks is totally wrong for Vere. And sadly he's taken note of Vere's stunning transformation.
When Vere asks her best friend for some kissing advice, Hunter can't resist.
And that's when things get out of control.

"Unmaking Hunter Kennedy is now brought to life by the expressive voices of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott.... Unmaking Hunter Kennedy gets our Best First Kiss award. This rockstar romance will make you swoon." (I Love YA Fiction)
I liked how the narrators were able to still be convincing even when reading as teenagers.
They tone of voice was spot on throughout the book which can be difficult considering teens are so over the top
My favorite scene was when Dustin ((Hunter)) would talk with a lisp. And the conversations him and Ver use to have.
The moment where Hunter truly reveales how he was feeling the night that ultimately changed his life which lead to discussions on depression and suicide
Amazing book loved it from start to dlfinsih. Very realistic with a bit of a stretch at times. Loved that issues that teens truly face where touched upon.
I loved how Hunter learned to be a person and not an image or piece or property to the tabloid media. The developement of the relationship between Vera and Hunter is sweet. Its has its ups and downs that blend very nicely.
My favorate character has to be Vera. She is such a shy and embarrassed girl who blossoms into her own and becomes fairly confident in herself. She steps out of her comfort zone and falls in love with Hunter a rock star who is in hiding after making several very bad choices.
For performance my favorite charater has to be Vera's best friend Jenny. she was just adorable, funking and comfortable with herself as a person and her looks. A strong relationship with her best friend who which is very solid.
I did laugh and cry and smiled alot at all the cute teenage things that occurred during the book.
This is a sweet YA book that is clean except for kissing, but a great book for girls to read.
I bought this on a spur liking the rating and the story line and let me tell you it didn't disappoint! the author is very detailed and I loved that it felt like I was walking around living as the characters. the 2 that did the voices were AMAZING! they brought it fully to life for me! if you're debating on getting this just stop the inner conflict and get out ASAP! you won't be disappointed!
Had to finish this in one day! Could not stop listening. The characters were engaging although, the lead girl was a bit psycho at times. Her antics, sometimes, reminded me of someone in Jr. high rather than a Jr. in high school. On hiatus from his boy band, the leading male character is trying to collect himself after a series of negative events leaves him wondering who he really is and how to mend the torn pieces of his life.
A book great for young adults and older since the sex doesn't go farther than a kiss but does address some mature issues (drinking, suicide, talk about sexual situations).
It's in the top ten.
Kai and Wen are consistent, and this is right in that ballpark.
This was a very sweet young adult, coming of age, teen angsty novel. Well written and well performed. While it does touch on serious subjects they are handled delicately and positively. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a light read.
