Music Monday (#3)

"Let's go back, back to the beginning. Back to when the earth, the sun, the stars all aligned. Cause perfect didn't feel so perfect. Trying to fit a square into a circle was no life. I defy."

For those of you who don't recognize those lyrics, they are from Hilary Duff's "Come Clean." That's who this week's Music Monday feature is all about. She was one of the first stars that I worshiped as a kid--worshiped being an exaggeration, of course. I only watched all the episodes of Lizzie McGuire whenever they were on, loved Casper Meets Wendy, bought Lizzie McGuire books and the movie, listened to her music 24/7, watched her music videos, tour DVDs, and other movies.

See. "Worship" is only an exaggeration ;)

I really believe Hilary is very talented. She is an amazing actress, great singer, all I need to do now is read her book--her debut young adult novel, "Elixir" co-written with Elise Allen.

Elixir book jacket--I think this picture of her is absolutely gorgeous!
Clea Raymond has felt the glare of the spotlight her entire life. The daughter of a renowned surgeon and a prominent Washington DC politician, she has grown to be a talented photojournalist who takes refuge in a career that allows her to travel to the most exotic parts of the world. But after Clea’s father disappears while on a humanitarian mission, Clea’s photos begin to feature eerie, shadowy images of a strange and beautiful man—a man she has never seen before.

When fate brings Clea and this man together, she is stunned by the immediate and powerful connection she feels with him. As they grow closer, they are drawn deep into the mystery behind her father’s disappearance, and they discover the centuries old truth behind their intense bond. Torn by a dangerous love triangle and haunted by a powerful secret that holds their fates, together they race against time to unravel their pasts in order to save their lives—and their futures.
