“Helen Hudson asked to see both of the Forrester sisters!”
Maybe Paige is right. Maybe this will be her big break. For her sake, I hope that’s how it goes down. I just don’t see any good reason for me to be involved.

Book: Premiere by Melody Carlson, Zondervan Publishers, 2010
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 17-25
Subjects: Fashion, Sibling Relationships, Dating Relationships, Drinking, Acting
Summary: A stupid mistake Paige made on TV while doing a news story for her mom should have cost her mom the job. Instead it gave Paige and much to her dismay, Erin too, a boost into the world of fame. They have just been given their own TV show in which Erin will film Paige discussing latest fashions. Erin finds it hard to think of anything more shallow or pointless, but the filming experience will be valuable so she goes along with it. Trouble starts piling up when those releasing the show decide to give the girls their introduction by putting them on a reality tv show for teenagers. When the lead male actor takes an interest in Paige things start heading downhill fast. This new career could end before the first show even airs.
Notes: This is a typical teen/young adult book covering about all of the standard issues. Fashion and dating relationships are the biggest, as well as the sibling relationships. Erin is a Christian and Paige is not. Erin finds Paige shallow and Paige finds Erin boring. Yet Erin has to be a light to her sister as much as she can. She’s thrust into the role of trying to keep her sister out of trouble – not an easy task when your sister is willing to embrace about anything or more specially – anyone. The spiritual element really isn’t strong but it is there in Erin’s witness to her sister.
Recommendation Scale: 3/5
