Fame is never free. It comes with a price. 
The question is, how much are you willing to pay to get it?

#1 - Caught Up In The Drama by ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Gallery Books/SimonandSchuster, 2010
Caught Up in the Drama (Good Girlz)
Genre: Realistic 
Target Audience: Girls 13-18
Subjects: Friendships, divorce, dating relationships
Summary: Camille has just won a singing competition and landed a spot in a music video with a hot young male singer who is extremely popular. But this isn’t free. To keep it she needs to give up her boyfriend, her friends, her reputation and her good relationship with her mom. Is she willing to pay the price?
Meanwhile, Alexis is once again struggling with the issue of her parents potential divorce. The arguments between her dad and mom are once more escalating and she too much consider the price of getting what she wants. How far will she go to keep her parents together?
Notes: As with the other books in the series, this book teaches good morals, but isn’t really “Christian”. It doesn’t bring the Bible or God into the story at all. It also views divorce as something pretty much unstoppable, just a part of life. People fall out of love and it’s better to be apart than solve things. It’s a sad view to have of it. It does not offer the hope of commitment, of life change through Christ.
Recommendation Scale: 2.5
