i really liked this one. I have enjoyed the MTV books, but this one actually hooked me right in. the entire series is addicting. FAR better than the FAST GIRLS series by MTV books.

Some things have happened to Eva Cordes back in her high school that she doesn't want to deal with for the rest of the year. Eva's solution? Graduate a semester early and start a new life in Hollywood with her aunt, Laurel, an agent who represents some of the biggest teen stars. Eva is going to be a star! An added bonus? She might get to find out more about her mother, a model who dumped Eva with her grandparents as a small child.
Life in Hollywood isn't quite as fabulous as Eva thought it would be, though. Sure, she's got her own credit card and a chance to become a star, but she's also rooming with a couple of other teen starlets who could turn out to be her friends--or, more likely, as it would seem at first, enemies. Her has-been mother won't even tell people she is a mother. Eva is being told who she can and cannot date because of their connections in Hollywood. Her aunt is keeping secrets from Eva. What did she expect, though? This is Hollywood, and Eva's life is fit for the tabloids already.
LIFE AS A POSER, the first book in THE 310 series, is a fun page-turner with sometimes outrageous and always interesting characters that readers looking for a way to pass a rainy Saturday won't want to miss. It's an entertaining and fairly quick read, as well as a fun behind-the-scenes look at Hollywood! I've read quite a few books lately that are backstage passes to the lives of celebrities, and this is one of the better ones. Perhaps because Eva goes so quickly from being a normal high school student to Hollywood; perhaps because Beth Killian is just a great writer! Either way, readers won't want to miss the next book in THE 310 series, EVERYTHING SHE WANTS.
