Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamaica Johnson Conner
Calonita effectively captures the enthusiastic, humorous, and vulnerable voice of a popular teenage actress, Kaitlin Burke, in this sequel to Secrets of My Hollywood Life and Secrets of My Hollywood Life on Location. While desiring the life of a normal teenage girl and all that goes with it (driver's license tests, SATs, etc.), Kaitlin carefully balances her acting career with her relationships with people, while attempting to keep a positive public image. When a gorgeous and friendly newcomer, Alexis Holden, arrives on the set of Kaitlin's TV drama Family Affairs, Kaitlin faces issues of jealousy and suspicions of ulterior motives and manipulations, which cause her to unite with her long-time rival, actress Sky Mackenzie. As Alexis's true intentions are exposed, Kaitlin shares Hollywood secrets with the reader, begins to fall in love with her boyfriend Austin, bonds with Sky, and attempts to rescue her own career. Calonita handles the complexities of the teen years in an appropriate and fun manner that will have preteen and teenage girls engrossed. Reviewer: Jamaica Johnson Conner

    Splendid Book

    This book, like many others that I've read, is wonderful. It's by Jen Calonita, and the story is set in present-day time. It's about a teen movie star named Kaitlin Burke that returns to life on the set of primetime drama Family Affairs after shooting a soon-to-be-blockbuster movie "Pretty Young Assassins". The new diva, Alexis, makes even Kaitlin's long-time archenemy Skye MacKenzie seem like a brat in judgment. Kaitlin starts to wonder if she can keep her perfect boyfriend, her crazy job, and her self-control in the face of this new star power. This book is very thrilling. You can never predict what will happen.

    I Also Recommend:

    Drama :)

    Kaitlyn Burke just wrapped up her summer movie which included her co-star Sky - her nemesis. She's headed back to her day job - the popular drama Family Affairs. This season a new character appears for a story arc. While Alexis seems friendly, nice, and charming, there's something a little off. Sky makes her feelings known to Kaitlyn, Alexis is out to steal their jobs and make them look bad. at first Kaitlyn dismisses Sky's idea, but she vows to take a closer look at her co-star.

    The new "IT" girl seems to be making splashes wherever she goes. She's talking up Kaitlyn's boyfriend and making diva demands one minute and then becomes a demure newbie the next.

    Will Alexis push Kaitlyn over the edge and drag down the family drama?

    This is the 3rd book in the Secrets of My Hollywood Life series and I adore them. I devour these books that contain drama, Hollywood secrets, romance, friendship issues, and work.

    The series was just killed-by this book!

    I adored the first two books in this series! Very well written and inavative. But this was a disappointment. Thank goodness I borrowed it,and didn't buy it!
    This book was so hard to get through! The whole book is mainly about Kaitlyn,this little brat complaining about not seeing her boyfriend and losing her job and trying to get a new one and her breaking down,but then everything gets better and better and she's still complaining. There is probably 15 pages that are good and the rest are pointless!
    All Caitlyn does in the whole book is complain!

    Amazing!

    I was at the library one day, when i saw an old friend, she recomended this book.
    I glance at the title and say to my self "I'll give it a try."
    I open it when i get home and I couldnt put it down! I was so amazed on how GREAT this book is, it has drama, thrill, romance, and when ur at the end of it I had to catch my breath.
    Austin has to be my favorite character next to Kaitlyn ,
    There such a cute couple and i never want them to break up.
    I cant wait to start reading Family Affairs im actually excited!
    Im not usually the one who reads a lot of books, but this series got me
    completely hooked!
    I feel as if I know the characters, and I feel like i personally hate Sky my self. PLEASE make a dozen more to the series Jen!
    I will recomend this to all my friends :)

    Great Book

    This book was a real fun read. You should read the other books first. I think there have been better books but not many. I really sugest this book for teen girls who have enjoyed the other books.

    Secrets of my Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita1 An awsome book filled with heartpounding events and real life drama!

    When I first saw this book at my school book fair it took me by surprise. At first I thought it was a book about a girl living the unforgetable life everyone wants to live. Then I read the back of the book and it hooked me on " How do I know? You've probaly already gussed. I'm one of them." That one single statemant hooked me to the book. <BR/> As I read through the book, i loved how Jen Calonita made it so Kaitlyn seemed like a normal soap opera star,with a crazy life then started to want to be normal. As the book progresses with details most people find it hard to enclude, like the famous Hollywood secreats it seams as if Kaitlyn is getting deeper in to drama and things way over her head! <BR/> The book is filled with suspense and real events that occur in a stars life that we all know about but do not see off screen! <BR/> Secrets of My Hollywood life is an awsome book for young adults and people who want to get the feel of how it is to be a celeberity and what comes along with the name!
