But with backstabbing friends and family, relentless paparazzi, and tabloid scandals she can't control Madison is going to have her work cut out for her. Plus, there's a new nice girl in 'reality' town - aspiring fashion designer Carmen Price, the daughter of Hollywood royalty - and she's a lot more experienced at playing the fame game...When the cameras start rolling, whose star will shine brighter? Filled with characters both familiar and new, Lauren Conrad's The Fame Game dishes Hollywood gossip and drama at every turn.

Reviews

Gr 9 Up-This first title in a spin-off series finds devious Madison-seen before in L.A. Candy (2009), Sugar and Spice (2010), and Sweet Little Lies (2010, all HarperCollins)-jockeying for the lead position in a new reality show. Though she has already found her share of fame and financial success from starring in L.A. Candy and her Madison's Makeovers, Madison is still waiting for her big break. She knows that being in the new reality show, The Fame Game, will create opportunities for her, but what she doesn't anticipate is sharing the spotlight with Hollywood legacy and new cast mate Carmen. With her faithful but foolish friend Gaby in tow, Madison navigates the ins and outs of yet another reality-show ride, this time with her ex-con father and attention-loving sister causing even more drama. Down-to-earth and likable newcomer Kate Hayes, an aspiring musician, and Carmen complicate matters-especially after Madison and Carmen are linked to the same guy in the tabloids. The Fame Game is light fare, full of pop-culture references and product placement. The behind-the-scenes look at reality TV exposes how little reality there actually is in the genre, and the same voyeuristic tendencies that make it enjoyable also make this series work since it is written by a reality TV insider. This novel is fluff, but it's also a quick, easy read that will surely attract reluctant readers.-Jennifer Miskec, Longwood University, Farmville, VA (c) Copyright 2012.
