The Fame Game #1
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis from Goodreads: The new series about life in the spotlight by television star, fashion designer, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of L.A. Candy, Lauren Conrad. And this time there’s nothing sweet about it.

I loved L.A. Candy and I was really happy when I heard that there would be a new series. I like it even better than Lauren Conrads first series. Jane and Scarlett left the show at the end of Sugar & Spice. Madison has had her own show after that, but it wasn't as succesfull as she had hoped. But Trevor has a new plan, The Fame Game. And Madison will be the star of this show. Well, that's what she thinks. Trevor does everything to make his new show a success and that includes Carmen Curtis, the aspiring actress with famous parents. 

In many ways it's similar to L.A. Candy, but the main characters make this a different story. We get to know Madison better. Her sister shows up with their long lost father and we see another side of Madison. She's not only the bitchy star player anymore. A second familiar name is the always blundering Gaby. The two new stars are Carmen Curtis and Kate Hayes, a beginning singer-song writer. I especially loved Kate, she's just so sweet. 

The story has many similarities to L.A. Candy. The introduction of the star players, the first film sessions, the evil plans of Trevor to set the girls against each other, and of course The Hot Guy Who Doesn't Want To Be Filmed. All these ingredients make this once again a great story. And the ending has you waiting for more! I can't wait for Starstruck. 

The Fame Game is a Chick Lit must-read.
