5.0 out of 5 stars a page-turner!


This book was great. It was different, mysterious and cunning; it showed the ups and downs of fame. The divas, the wannabes, the co-star crushes, the screaming fans, the fights and homework. Towards the end it became a real page-turner, finding out about the saboteur.

A must-read for those who love a good mystery. I think I'm going to read it again!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ms. White has some natural talent of her own ...


This is by far the best self-published book that I've read all year.  The storyline is engaging, the dialogue is realistic, and the characters are endearing.   It combines mystery, love, stardom, and suspense in a very entertaining package and deals with a few challenging teenage issues in a competent way.
