    mobi â CRUSH by Cathy Alter · Hardcover õ cathy alter CRUSH by Cathy AltSome of these stories re first celebrity crushes were really interesting and some were far too long I experienced so much sympathetic embarrassment during the Brian Austin Green remembrance that I had to skip the track and don't know how it ends hopefully well?

    mobi â CRUSH by Cathy Alter · Hardcover õ cathy alter CRUSH by Cathy AltThis dumb book had a good concept but failed on organization and depth It's simply a bunch of random short thoughts on star crushes from writers I've mostly never heard They range from a few sentences to a few pages Nothing of substance to any of them A few go inappropriately into politics condemning Donnie Osmond for failing to support gay marriage?
