I wasn’t sure about this book at first, because it juggles four POVs and jumps around in the timeline over a 4 year period. However. Once I got immersed in it I freaking LOVED it.
Each of the four former members of teen pop sensation Moonlight Overthrow juggles their ambitions and needs with the rekindling of their friendship as they prepare for a benefit concert for their hometown. Each is well-rounded and fleshed out, and each is sympathetic while also having flaws.
It’s Eva and Celeste’s love story, but it’s also Eva and Celeste and Gina and Steph’s love story, and it’s the love story of the fans for Moonlight Overthrow, and Moonlight Overthrow for its fans, and just this explosion of queer love and music love that warmed my heart. I loved every minute of reading it and I hated to see it end.
Can you be a fan of a fictional band? Because, uh, I think I’m a fan of Moonlight Overthrow, and I’m so sad that I can’t be a part of that fandom because it… doesn’t actually exist?
Until the moon crashes into the sea, indeed.
