Announcing Book #18 on the BookSparks 2015 Summer Reading Challenge: Star Craving Mad by Elise Miller.
Maddy Braverman, thirty and single, has taught first grade at an elite private school in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village for the past six years. Angry at herself for not moving on, Maddy is distracted from her pity party with a new student—Lola Magdalena, daughter of A- list celebrities Nic and Shelby Seabolt—a last-minute addition to her class roster.
When Lola breaks her arm on the playground, Maddy has the chance to meet with Nic in his TriBeCa apartment. Maddy’s celebrity fantasies turn to reality—make-out sessions, sex and even a Hamptons holiday bash that leave Maddy yearning for Nic’s love.
