Publisher's Summary

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.

Anne Eliot is an Amazon top 100 best-selling young adult author. She writes sweet high school romances featuring book boyfriends you can't forget and, of course, those amazing first kisses.

    Story
    "even as teenagers"
    What made the experience of listening to Unmaking Hunter Kennedy the most enjoyable?

    I liked how the narrators were able to still be convincing even when reading as teenagers.<br/><br/>They tone of voice was spot on throughout the book which can be difficult considering teens are so over the top


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Dustin ((Hunter)) would talk with a lisp. And the conversations him and Ver use to have.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Sweet, yet could be two books"

    The Unmaking of Hunter Kennedy is a fun, sweet summer listen. The narrators did a beautiful job of conveying some tricky internal and external dialog. The premise of the rock star hiding in normal city USA, is a well-loved romantic trope, too.

    However, as much as I loved some of the witty, hilarious exchanges, the beats from romantic event to romantic event along with criss-crossing with the mystery of how his mother sent him to Colorado was loose and at times confusing. And there is enough content to make a series. The middle to the end seemed scattered. The characters constantly change their minds to the point of inconsistency.

    Again, really funny, clever dialog, and this would be great as a young teen sitcom - solid PG!

    "Not a big fan of female voice and why no epilogue?"

    Good, cute story. Wish there had been a little more romance and an epilogue. I liked Wen Ross's voice, but Kai Kennicott's "older lady" "mom" voice really bothered me. Warning: anxiety and depression triggers

    Story
    "A story that makes you laugh & cry."

    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).

    "A Fun, Romantic & Meaningful Read!"

    Wow! What an amazing read. I don't usually go for rock star storylines but this one was perfect. True emotions and depth and pain and a sense of being lost in a crowded room.

    I loved Hunter/Dustin. Absolutely charmed by Vere. And got a few outright laughs from Jenna and from Charlie. In fact this whole book had a delightful humor interlaced throughout. Definitely a fun and meaningful read.

    I also listened to about half of it on audiobook which was perfectly narrated with dual narration.

    "Listened in one day"

    This was not my favorite writing style but I was still completely pulled in and couldn't stop listening until I finished. I feel like Vere was a very relatable character with her anxiety and the fact that she was not the best at talking to guys. I also absolutely loved the ending! It turned the book into a satisfying read for me with lightness and humor with just the right amount of drama.
