Imagine the entire nation turning on the television to watch you battle it out to become the next biggest actress. Now imagine actually winning the challenge and having your entire world change from ordinary to extraordinary. That is exactly what happens to Jacey Chandliss when she wins Generation Next: America's Top Young Actress.
Of course, being noticed by everyone you meet and becoming America's sweetheart can be tough, but everything cancels out, especially when you are now living the large life. But when your life changes everything else does, too. Jacey will never get her privacy back, her relationship with her boyfriend could be in big trouble, and being in a world full of competition can be a little hard to handle.
Good thing Jacey has her friends Dash, Desi, and Ivy, otherwise known as her posse, to keep her company, to help her from going insane, and to keep her from making the wrong decisions. But when you're a celebrity, the spotlight is all about the bad decisions and mistakes you make.
Randi Reisfeld goes from teen nannies to teen witches and now teen starlets. STARLET gives us another view on how crazy your life can get when you reach super-stardom and all the problems you will have to face. Jacey is just another sweetheart that we will all fall in love with, both the people in the story and the ones reading it. Even though some may dream of becoming the It Girl, this story might make you think twice. STARLET is just the first in the series. Reading the first book was the easy part; waiting for the next book in the series is the hardest.
