Title: Starlet's Man
Series: The Starlet Series, #0.5

Thoughts: Highly recommended to YA readers.

Book Synopsis:

From the award-winning author of the Starlet Series, comes Starlet's Man, a story about a boy becoming a man amidst the mixed-messages in Hollywood culture. Discover why the Starlet Series took Gold and Silver medals in the Readers' Choice 2014 International Book Award Contest.

Lights, Cameras, and Lies. High school student athlete, Manny Biro, is caught between the boy he should be and the man he wants to become.

Everyone around him accepts the Hollywood life. He doesn't. Manny wants no part of acting. On the surface, his childhood best friends seem to have it all: money, power, success. Between the lines, they are all confused. Alan is a messed up want-to-be director focused on pushing scenes to their sexy potential. Beth is an athlete driven to escape from a dark past. Janet is Manny's kid sister caught up in fashion and trends. And Marie is a lonely actress exhausted by the culture that makes everyone's favorite stories.

What is the price of fame for all the characters? Conflicts and truths will unfold in this thought-provoking installment of Carla Hanna's young adult Starlet Series, Starlet's Man.


It's no wonder The Starlet Series has won so many awards. I feel that Carla J. Hanna has ventured into a new territory by exploring the lives of Hollywood teenagers. It's a refreshing, realistic series that will keep readers turning the pages. I highly recommend this series to young adult readers.
