Becoming Mila by Estelle Maskame

Thank you so much to Ink Road for gifting me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! Ad-Gifted


Goodreads Synopsis

Sixteen-year-old Mila lives in LA with her mom and A-list actor dad, whose fame constantly thrusts their lives into the media spotlight. But when Mila's antics around town make waves ahead of her dad's next big movie, something needs to be done. So Mila is dispatched 2,000 miles away to Nashville, Tennessee, where she can cool off for the summer with her aunt and grandfather. The perfect solution – right?

Mila's not so sure. She's dreading the idea of a summer away from her friends, not to mention being shipped to the other side of the country. Apprehensive and out-of-sorts when she arrives, it doesn't take long for her to get off on the wrong foot with the mayor’s son, Blake. In spectacular style.

But Blake's no stranger to Mila's issues. He knows exactly what life's like with a parent in the public eye – the pressures and politics, dramas and dynamics... Perhaps Mila and Blake have far more in common than either of them care to admit.



Oh my god this book was AMAZING and I am desperate for the next book already! The characters, the setting, the drama and the love for country music just ticked all the boxes for me and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this book!

Becoming Mila is one of those books that just completely hooks you in and you never want it to let you go. I grew to love Mila and Blake so much, even when they made stupid decisions that had me screaming at my book! One of my favourite things about this book was Mila's character development throughout the book. She goes through quite a big change and it was interesting to read as she learnt to adapt to her new surroundings.

I absolutely loved Maskame's writing style and have bumped up Dare To Fall on my tbr as that has been sitting on my shelves for quite a while now! Becoming Mila is a perfect YA summer read that will have you wanting more! I cannot wait for the next book in this trilogy to come out towards the end of this year!

Rating: 5/5 stars
