Spotlight~This series shines brightly!
This review is for the book "Spotlight" by Melody Carlson.
I am in total love with this series. I seriously read this book in less than a day. I always eagerly wait for the next installment to make it's way to me! My mail person is probably tired of having to come to the door with my book packages and my mail eagerness. Who looks forward to the time of day your mail runs? Surely it can't just be me??? Anyway back to the fabulous book I just finished.
In the fourth book, the sisters show, On the Runway, has become a global phenomenon. Paige, as well as Erin are starting to become recognized when they go out and about.
Paige eats it up of course but Erin is less than thrilled about the attention they are receiving, especially when Paige starts hanging out with her controversial old boyfriend just to get more press.
I feel like Paige really slid backward in her personality for awhile in this book. She had started improving and she and Erin were getting a closer relationship but the minute her solo "spotlight" is challenged she is willing to throw Erin to the side. Not so much sisterly love going on there for a minute.
I have to say again that I like that Melody touches on tough subjects without glamorizing or dramatizing them. You really feel like you are watching the sisters grow as they go through the good and the bad. Fame isn't all it's cracked up to be and Paige soon realizes that when nasty rumors start being spread about her in the tabloids.
I am eager to read the next installment as there are only two more books in the series and a rather interesting and big development happens in the end of this book. Pick up a copy and see for yourself!
Excellent series which I highly recommend for teenagers and women alike :)
Hope your weekends are going fantastic and that you have time to read at least a little!
