Serle Famous in LoveWhen Paige Townsen gets cast in the movie adaptation of a phenomenal book series, her life takes many new turns. Paige has left the quiet streets of her hometown for a crowded movie set on the shores of Maui while spending quality time with her co-star Rainer Devon, already a well-known star. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder is offered the role of the other ‘man’ in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s strange new life gets even more complicated. The writing is full of fragments. With lack of variety. Many of the sentences begin with ‘like.’ Paige’s instantaneous ‘love’ of the two boys she meets on the set tugs at her old friendship with her best friend, Jake. This is the first book in a trilogy. April 2015 review by Penny McDermott.
