Title: American Girl on Saturn
By Nikki Godwin

Amazon | Smashwords | B & N


The summer after graduation is supposed to be that first real taste of freedom - but not for eighteen-year-old Chloe Branson. Just as that breeze of freedom is making its way into her galaxy, her secret-service-agent dad drops a meteor-sized bomb of bad news on her and her sisters. An attempt has been made on the lives of Canadian boyband, Spaceships Around Saturn, during their USA tour, and the guys have to go into hiding ASAP. The only problem? In the midst of the crisis and media frenzy, their dad volunteered to hide the their house.

Six-year-old Emery is as ecstatic as any self-proclaimed Saturnite would be, but Chloe and her seventeen-year-old sister Aralie watch their summer plans crash and burn like a falling star. The SAS guys aren't happy with the situation, either. Bad boy Jules picks fights with Aralie about everything from his Twitter followers to his laundry, and heart-throb Benji can't escape Emery's fangirlisms for more than three minutes.

But after the super-cute Milo kisses Chloe during a game of hide-and-seek, she finally understands what Emery means when she talks about SAS being "out of this world." If this is what Saturn feels like, Chloe doesn't want to come back to Earth.


He reaches toward the tray and grabs the lone Oreo. "Okay, this is my last one for the night," he says. "Half it with me?"

Seriously? If I wasn't the envy of every Saturnite in the world just by sitting across the table from him, I'm definitely the envy of them now because the Milo Grayson wants to half his precious Oreo with me. And the thing that sucks the most is that no one knows about it to be jealous of me!

He holds the cookie up and waits for a response.

"Yeah, we can half it," I say.

I reach across the table for it, but he jerks his arm back. The sleeve of his T-shirt hugs his bicep tightly, and oh how I wish to be that fabric.

"Not so fast," he says. "Let's make it interesting."

Could this be any more interesting? Hello - you're gorgeous and famous and sharing cookies with me! Any more 'interest' and I might burst like a firework.

"If you get the side with the cream, I'll give you my honest male opinion about your checkout line drama today," he says. "But if I get the cream side, you have to tell me, honestly, who you think the best looking guy is in Spaceships Around Saturn."

Oh God. He's for real. Does he know? He totally knows. He knows I'm lusting for him from behind this glass of milk and tattoo magazine. He knows that his eyes make me melt and that I clearly watch him on Twitter because I know all about amazzzzzing. Now he wants to make me 'fess up.

"Deal." I say it before I can chicken out.

I can always lie and say Benji's name. He's the fan favorite anyway. Benji Baccarini is Spaceships Around Saturn for so many girls.

He leans forward, positions himself over the table, and holds up that fated Oreo. I push my glass of milk aside because the last thing I want is to knock it over with my quivering nerves. Then I lean toward him, grip the cookie with my fingers, and inhale every scent of his body wash that I can while I twist my half of the Oreo away from his half.

My Review:

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Here we have the Branson sisters. The oldest is eighteen year old Chloe who has just graduated from high school. Then we have Aralie who is seventeen years old and she is not afraid of no one or anything who will speak her mind, Aralie will tell you like it is straight to your face. Then we have the youngest Branson sister Emery who is five years. I loved Emery's attitude and the way she did and said things. She reminded me so much of my Grandniece Emily.

The Branson sister's summer was all screwed up when their dad volunteered to let a boyband from Canada who was on tour in the USA stay at their home after being shot at. Their dad let them stay with them while he investigated the shooting. Their vacation was taken from them as well as some other things that they did every year. Needless to say the Branson sisters were very upset until they learned who it was that was going to be staying with them. The guys from the boyband called Spaceships around Saturn. Emery was probably their biggest fan especially for a five year old. She had the biggest crush on the lead singer Benji; she followed him around everywhere he went. The only time Benji got any piece was when Emery was in bed a sleep. After Chloe and Aralie got to know the guys they didn't seem to mind the fact that their summer was taken from them. Chloe and Aralie both had their own pick of the guys and they each started dating them as they called it. Chole, Aralie and their guy of choice would slip out of the house at all hours of the night but at different times of course.

American Girl on Saturn was not anything like I thought it would be. I thought it would be about this girl who got on a spaceship and went to Saturn, boy was I wrong. When I first started reading it I was kind of disappointed that no one was going to Saturn but it didn't take me long to forget all about anyone going to Saturn. I think the Branson sisters were all very lucky to get to spend their summer with a boyband. How cool would that be? To be able to spend the summer with your favorite band and at your own house too. WOW! I really enjoyed reading American Girl on Saturn. I would catch myself at times just laughing out loud at some of the things that Emery would do or say. That little girl just made my day. I know my family probably thought I was losing it. On second thought I think they know me well enough by now and figure well she must be reading again. LOL! If you haven't read American Girl on Saturn yet then I recommended that you give it a try. I think you will probably like it.
