Holly is dreading the rest of her Grandfather's birthday cruise because it means spending time with her totally-hot-but-so-evil cousins and are-you-sure-you-want-to-eat-that-watch-your-calories aunt. Well, her crazy realatives and a horrible bout of seasickness. That same seasickness forces Holly to stumble into an open suite. She barfs and is on her way out the door when she meets Nick who reluctantly offers her a place to sleep for the night. Holly is about to trudge back to her room when she finds that Nick is actually Dominic, the drummer for the hit band ReadySet. But it too late, swarms of petty fans and papparazzi's have already seen a sleepy, disheveled teenage Holly try to slink out of a rockstars suite. You can imagine what they think. To scavenge whats left of ReadySets family friendly reputation, Nick begs Holly to be his fake girlfriend for a while.
As this fauxmance goes on, they begin to develop real feelings for each other...
Decked with Holly by Marni Bates is such a sweet book! The plot wasn't all that original but Bates' characters were so believable!
9/10 stars, Ages 10 up.
