"Madison Parker has discovered that not all publicity is good publicity. After turning herself in for stealing some bling, the reality star is stuck doing community service while her Fame Game castmates soak up all the screen time. Not that newcomer Kate Hayes needs more attention—ever since her breakout song became an overnight sensation she's suddenly acting like she's Katy Perry. Aspiring actress Carmen Curtis is finally making a name for herself, but she's finding it harder than ever to get out from behind her famous mother's shadow. And in Hollywood, leading men are a dime a dozen, but a good man is hard to find. So when two of the girls have their eye on the same guy, that can mean only one thing: on-camera drama."
Surprise, surprise, another chick lit novel. I've really been enjoy girly reads lately and Lauren Conrad's second book in the Fame Game trilogy is no exception. An easy read, which could be a novel version of a season of The Hills, Starstruck has everything a great chick lit should contain; romance, drama and a good plot. Each character goes through a transformation in the second instalment, Madison becomes likeable, Kate gets a bit too big for her boots and gets shipped off home (Heidi Montag being sent back to Colorado to get away from Spencer rings a bell...) and Carmen grows a thick skin against her mother. If you like Lauren Conrad, The Hills or chick lits in general, you'll enjoy this book. It's not groundbreaking in terms of writing, but as a quick escape, it ticks all the right boxes!
