But then Four Ape gets back together and Jasper not only recognizes but remembers Ellen.

I like this story but it didn’t really WOW me. I never really had a celebrity crush. I liked different celebrities but didn’t go crazy about them no crush. But this story did explain in such a way that I did understand what Ellen felt. Ellen was a likeable person and I cheered her on. I liked the characters and the ins and outs of the story.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
