Fifteen-year-old Wonder Blake and her family are trying to recover from the death of Wonder's older sister Lucky, who was about to sign a major record deal when she died. When Lucky's talent manager runs into Wonder at the Dairy Queen where she works, her life takes a dramatic turn--suddenly, despite her own ambivalence, she is the one signing the record deal. Transformed into a teen idol and thrust into the spotlight, Wonder learns what it takes to be a star--and also what it costs. The new world she has entered will leave her forever changed.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amanda | 1/10/2014

    " A happy, light, fairly predictable YA read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rene | 1/9/2014

    " Book about a girl who gets a shot to be a popular singer, climbs to the top, then decides it's not for her--yet. Okay book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alana | 1/4/2014

    " Didn't realize the audiobook was abridged when I picked it up. Perhaps the novel itself wouldn't feel quite as rushed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 12/18/2013

    " While I lost interest in this book after a while, I did like the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randa | 12/14/2013

    " Super cute teen novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Erskine | 12/7/2013

    " Pop Princess was ok, but very very very cliched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alissa | 12/2/2013

    " Not as good as the Gingerbread books, but still a good read. Actually, it was better than I expected it to be. Although the main character is in a highly unusual situation (not one your average teen would get into), this is still a great coming of age book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Fernanda | 11/30/2013

    " I absolutely hate this book. I mean, the ending just comes out of NOWHERE and everything you knew turns out to be a lie. Also, the writing is not very good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennie | 8/23/2013

    " This tells the story of the rise of a pop star one summer and how she deals with the fame and the death of her sister and the strain that caused on her family. This wasn't nearly as good as Gingerbread et al. but was fun. The ending was totally predictable but one I was rooting for anyway. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alarra | 2/2/2013

    " I liked this. It's like if Britney had died early in her career, and then Jamie Lynn was discovered and groomed to be the next best thing. Predictable, but it had heart. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Helen | 1/6/2013

    " Not bad, but seemed slightly pointless... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 12/17/2012

    " A cute teen American idol flick with a sweat main character and believable side stars, but if there is a sequel, i won't be picking it up. The most i can say is that i liked that the author showed pop culture the way it is, with drugs, sex, and sexual identity making a pointed appearance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lesley | 12/15/2012

    " predictable and a little pretentious. But man, I love rise-to-fame novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rotem | 8/12/2012

    " it was good towards the beginning and ending. easy read to keep your mind off important things. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisha | 6/13/2012

    " This book gives you a pretty cool insight as to what teen pop stars might go through. It's a cool book, but not inspiring or empowering in any way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Cipriano | 10/15/2011

    " Amazing, only thing... I wish there was a book about Lucky. But that would be a different story. "

    " well written, great insides of the pop world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 12/18/2010

    " Decent read! Don't be put off because it deals with pop music, this gives you an interesting viewpoint on Pop Princesses and what it takes to make it in the music industry. It's very strong on finding who you are, and doing things your way, but that comes later in the book. Good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leah | 11/24/2010

    " I absolutely love this book. It's totally cliched and superficial, but it has it's good parts, too. It's sometimes obscene, but I am so glad that I read it. "
