Synopsis

How to be a Star by M. Doty

In the first Surviving High School novel, freshman Emily Kessler overcame her first-day fears, broke national records on her swim team, secured her place in the high school hierarchy, and even started dating the cutest boy in school. Tired of playing Emily's sidekick, it's time for best-friend Kimi Chen to step into the spotlight and snag her own place at the coveted centre table of the cafeteria. But when a low-budget music video she made hits the web and goes viral, forget just being popular - Kimi is famous! Boys want to date her, girls want to be her, and she's even been asked to perform on her favourite television show. Things are finally looking up; what could possibly go wrong? But when fame starts to get in the way of her friendships, Kimi chokes on national television. It turns out that being a star may be more than she bargained for.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
