Krysten Lindsay Hager is an obsessive reader and has never met a bookstore she didn’t like. She’s worked as a journalist and humor essayist, and writes for teens, tweens, and adults. She is the author of the Landry’s True Colors Series and her work has been featured in USA Today and named as Amazon’s #1 Hot New Releases in Teen & Young Adult Values and Virtues Fiction and Amazon’s #1 Hot New Releases in Children’s Books on Values. She’s originally from Michigan and has lived in South Dakota, Portugal, and southwestern Ohio. She received her master’s degree from the University of Michigan-Flint.


Hadley Daniels is tired of feeling invisible. 

After Hadley’s best friend moves away and she gets on the bad side of some girls at school, she goes to spend the summer with her grandparents in the Lake Michigan resort town of Grand Haven. Her next door neighbor is none other than teen TV star Simone Hendrickson, who is everything Hadley longs to be—pretty, popular, and famous—and she’s thrilled when Simone treats her like a friend. 

Being popular is a lot harder than it looks. 

It’s fun and flattering when Simone includes her in her circle, though Hadley is puzzled about why her new friend refuses to discuss her former Hollywood life. Caught up with Simone, Hadley finds herself ignoring her quiet, steadfast friend, Charlotte. 

To make things even more complicated, along comes Nick Jenkins… 

He’s sweet, good-looking, and Hadley can be herself around him without all the fake drama. However, the mean girls have other ideas and they fill Nick’s head with lies about Hadley, sending him running back to his ex-girlfriend and leaving Hadley heartbroken. 

So when her parents decide to relocate to Grand Haven, Hadley hopes things will change when school starts…only to be disappointed once again. 



Love gone bad. 

Is this really what it’s like to live… 

Next Door To A Star?


I am obsessed with the main character of Landry's True Colors Series. I have been an avid fan of Krysten Hager since the day I read her first book, True Colors. She is an amazing writer who knows the way to indulge a teen in her book. But sadly, Next Door To A Star was an okay read. It isn't amazing but in a nutshell this book is your typical every day story.
The plot is so much related to True Colors, so there was no wow factor for me. But I won't deny the fact that it was enjoyable and fun filled. The book is filled with dozens of teen problems like friendship problems, popularity, jealousy, betrayal. 
This story revolves around a beauty conscious girl who is not so beautiful, Hadley. The character can't literally take a decision in her life. She's confused all the time. Her life is such a mess. The way she solves all her problems and gets a prize in the end is so... amazing. Simone is another hot celebrity character who just can't stop talking about herself. Charlotte is so much like Hadley but she's an embarrassment in front of 'Simone and the girls'. I hated the best friend of Hadley she's such a *censor*. Can't you see that Hadley literally worships you, Simone?!?! 
Overall, a perfect read when your feeling depressed and alone! Highly recommended to tweens!
Happy Reading!
