Book description:
Adrienne Speck is the biggest loser in her high school, so she can hardly believe it when a magical boy falls from the heavens to grant her three wishes. He is cool, confident, and definitely popular-crowd material—everything Adrienne's not. With his help, she has a chance to get everything she's ever wanted: get kissed, get popular, and get a date for the upcoming dance.

But Adrienne discovers magic isn't all it's cracked up to be, and the road to popularity is paved with humiliation. To make her dreams come true, not only will she have to get the lead in the school play, ask out the most popular guy in school, and stand up to the current queen of popularity, but also keep her personal genie from trashing her room, dressing like a nerd, and revealing to her mom that he's living in their attic. For someone who's supposed to be helping her, he couldn't be making her life any worse. That is, until she starts to fall for him.

About the Author:
Chelsea M. Campbell grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot. And then rains some more. She finished her first novel when she was twelve, sent it out, and promptly got rejected. Since then she's written many more novels, earned a degree in Latin and Ancient Greek, become an obsessive knitter and fiber artist, and started a collection of glass grapes. Besides writing, studying ancient languages, and collecting useless objects, Chelsea is a pop-culture fangirl at heart and can often be found rewatching episodes of Buffy the Vampire SlayerParks and Recreation, or dying a lot in Dark Souls.

A not so popular girl, with only one dream- for people to start liking her. A Star that heard her cry for help, and came down to grant her three wishes.

Popularity, A Date to the Winter Dance and A First Kiss.

Crazy, right? And how much do you want it?

Starlight is the funniest and easiest- to- get- into novel I've read in a while. I read the entire thing in a few hours, without moving from the spot that I originally started. I loved how bullying was handled, but most of all, I love what Chelsea Campbell managed to do with her characters.

Adrienne Speck is one of the loneliest girls, with absolutely no self esteem, mostly because she has no support system to help her with the bullying, who would give anything to turn back time and never cause the incident that turned from Invisible Adrienne to The Girl to make fun of.

Saiph is another story all together! He is absolutely BRILLIANT- whether he's getting her the main lead in the school play, shopping for the dress, or even *ahem* kissing her- there is something SO different about him, that I couldn't help falling in love with!

All in all, a book you must definitely read!
