Casting Call Saturday - To Be Perfectly Honest by Sonya Sones

So this is the most amazing idea that I have ever heard. My friend Alyssa (all of her links will be below) came up with the idea of doing a "casting call" for some of our favourite books! I loved this so much that I knew I had to join in.

For this weeks Casting Call Saturday, I decided to choose a book I recently read and enjoyed. I chose to pick my dream cast for To Be Perfectly Honest by Sonya Sones.

Summary according to goodreads

Her friends 
have a joke about her:
How can you tell if Colette is lying?
Her mouth is open.

Fifteen-year-old Colette is addicted to lying. Her shrink says this is because she’s got a very bad case of Daughter-of-a-famous-movie-star Disorder—so she lies to escape out from under her mother’s massive shadow. But Colette doesn’t see it that way. She says she lies because it’s the most fun she can have with her clothes on. Not that she’s had that much fun with her clothes off. At least not yet, anyway. When her mother drags her away from Hollywood to spend the entire summer on location in a boring little town in the middle of nowhere, Colette is less than thrilled. But then she meets a sexy biker named Connor. He’s older, gorgeous, funny, and totally into her. So what if she lies to him about her age, and about who her mother is? I mean, she has to keep her mother’s identity a secret from him. If he finds out who she really is, he’ll forget all about Colette, and start panting and drooling and asking her for her mother’s autograph. Just like everyone always does. But what Colette doesn’t know is that Connor is keeping a secret of his own…

Colette (main character) - Andrea Russett

What a shocker, I chose another YouTuber. Andrea Russet is a popular teenager on YouTube, who vlogs and talks about funny topics. Andrea is so funny, pretty, and witty that I think she would be perfect for playing Colette. Colette's character can lie her butt off and get away with it, she's fun, but can also be an emotional and sensitive teenager. Just from watching Andrea's videos and reading her tweets, I could envision her being in the story.

Connor (love interest) - Mark Salling

Lately, I have been watching a lot of Glee, and I have become a fan of Mark, who plays Noah "Puck" Puckerman. There is an age difference between these two characters, but Mark can play a younger man convincingly. Mark gives off a vibe of mystery, as well as being playful and sexy, which is how connor acts in the story. 

Will (Colette's younger brother) - Max Charles

I am not extremely familiar with Max, but I did see him in The Amazing Spider-Man. I picked Max because he's within the same age, is adorable, and I see Will when I look at him. 

Marissa Shawn (Colette's mother) - Dolly Parton

Marissa Shawn is a blonde, perky celebrity who can charm anyone. Who does that remind you of? Dolly Parton. Based on the acting that I have seen done by Dolly, she and Marissa would handle situations in the same way - dealing with her kids, fans swarming, trying to be postitive, etc.
