Snapshot by Angie Stanton - PUBLIC ONLY

Stanton, Angie  Snapshot (Jamieson Brothers, #2), 416 pgs.  Harper Teen, 2013.  $9.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (112 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG.   

Marti and Adam meet at a summer camp for photographers.  Marti is a rock princess (her father is a rock legend) and Adam is the lead guitar in the hottest boy band in the country.  Although Adam tries to hide his identity, Marti figures him out and is disappointed that she likes someone in the music industry because she has had such a bad experience with her dad.  Marti and Adam are drawn to each other and when Marti’s life is thrown for a curve, Adam wants to be there for her.   

This is a teen romance, but has a lot of heavy content—teen pregnancy, drug-abusing parent, and death of a guardian.  The mature content includes:  off page unprotected sex, naked skinny dipping with multiple boys and girls, underage drinking, drug use and attempted rape.  This book is so different than the first book in the series—and it is hard to recommend.   

HS-PUBLIC.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
