In this romantic sequel to Famous in Love, new Hollywood "It Girl" Paige must navigate love with her co-stars, both on and off screen and all in the public eye.
Lights, camera, love!
After being plucked from obscurity, Hollywood's newest starlet, Paige Townsen, has a hit film to her name and Rainer Devon on her arm. But being half of the world's most famous couple comes with a price, and soon Paige finds herself dodging photographers; hiding her feelings for her other costar, Jordan Wilder; and navigating tabloid scandals that threaten to tear her and Rainer apart-and end her career as quickly as it began.
These are the type of contemporary books I enjoy reading. The Famous in Love novels have a great story, they don't shy away from the hard stuff, and show that life and relationships aren't perfect. I also appreciate that it shows that the people on the other side of the camera are real people, an important message for teens and adults these days.
Truly, Madly, Famously is the sequel to Famous in Love. Famous in Love showed Paige Towsen's rise to stardom when she got the leading role in the book to movie adaption of LOCKED, THE BIG YA book hitting the big screen. Paige went form no one to the it girl in Hollywood and now that reality is catching up to hear in Truly, Madly, Famously.
The book starts shortly after the events of Famous in Love and after the release of LOCKED. She's dealing with a new relationship and the trappings of fame, including the paparazzi, and isn't doing so well at points. I loved seeing the ups and downs of Paige dealing with everything and showing that yeah, she may be 18, but she isn't totally prepared to deal with everything on her own and that's okay. Showing Paige's growth through the story really makes the whole series stand out for me, even though it does follow some tropes, Serle does a great job of keeping the story on track and not letting it fall into the tropes that could have made the story totally over the top.
Like most good contemporary stories, you can't talk much about the plot without giving things away, and I want you all to experience everything as you and Paige discover it. If you're a fan of ya book adaptations, a fan of Hollywood and the entertainment world, or just looking for a good contemp, Famous in Love series is a great place to start.
