Daughters Rule Number Six: Never talk to the press about your parents.

After leaking a story about the family business, impetuous high school freshman Carina Jurgensen is cut off by her billionaire father. Always resourceful, she fibs her way into a job as a party planner for New York's annual Silver Snowflake Ball. But when Carina finds out that the party committee expects favors and freebies from her dad's A-list connections, a choice must be made: Does she get real about her downgraded status, or pretend she's still the ultimate heiress?

Best friends and fellow daughters of celebrities Lizzie Summers, Carina Jurgensen and Hudson Jones are back in Joanna Philbin's second stylish and heartfelt Daughters novel.

Editorial Reviews

Seventeen.com
"As if navigating their high school hallways weren't enough, these girls have to do so under the entire world's watchful eyes!"
author of Secrets of My Hollywood Life Jen Calonita
"I was drawn to the tantalizing story immediately, but my heart was stolen by the fierce friendship between three besties living life inside the celebrity fishbowl. I can't wait to read the next book!"
author of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Im Alyson Noel
"Reading Joanna Philbin's funny, witty, and poignant debut is like getting an insider's glimpse into the gilded world of those born to be famous."
author of the #1 bestselling Gossip Girl and It Gi Cecily von Ziegesar
"Ever wonder what it's really like to grow up in Manhattan with a famous mom or dad? Well, Joanna Philbin is going to tell you. The Daughters is authentic and well-told. Gossip Girl herself would love this new series."
Alyson Noël
"Reading Joanna Philbin's funny, witty, and poignant debut is like getting an insider's glimpse into the gilded world of those born to be famous."
Children's Literature - Heidi Quist
Fourteen-year-old Carina Jurgensen, daughter of billionaire media mogul Carl Jurgensen, feels trapped under the weight of her father's demands and expectations, feeling "The Jurg" only cares about money and making sure she presents herself well, rather than caring about her as a person. After a few unpleasant days in a forced internship as his office copy girl, she finds a memo that she believes reveals a major money scam, and she leaks it to the press. In punishment, following Carina's own, albeit unintended suggestion, her dad cuts her allowance to an unbearable $20 per week (down from two credit cards and a bank account). The New York city-girl with friends, crushes, and enemies in high places struggles at first with the situation but soon meets a super cool public high school DJ who turns her thinking in the right direction. Carina learns and thereby sets the example of living with some good moral values such as honesty, financial wisdom, being true to oneself, and not jumping to conclusions without facts. Although the upper class lifestyle will not be the norm for most of Philbin's readership, Carina's lessons about money might help them to view the lifestyle more realistically, with less envy. Drawbacks would include the frequent taking of the Lord's name in vain, and the still-present value placed on money. Also, although admittedly she did a lot on her own, in spite of her efforts to avoid using her dad's name for favors, her reliance upon a man or boy to help her solve her problems is also still questionable.

    Sample problem?

    The sample started off well but then it suddenly started repeating an entire section I already read in italics and repeated itself again in normal print...

    I love The Daughters series! They're easy to read and you're hooked from the beginning. You should read the first one first if you haven't already.

    Not too bad

    I gave this book as a gift but read it first. I liked it. It was an easy read and the characters were engaging. It was a little hard to relate since i'm not a rich girl from the upper east side.
