Overview

Summer maybe here, but sixteen-year-old Gemma Hunter won't have much time to relax. The world is hungry for more Queen Bee, her pop star alter ego who has recently become music's newest sensation.

Despite an official relationship at home with longtime crush, Lucas, Gemma can't resist exploring her life as a celebrity it girl. However, it isn't long before she finds herself becoming too friendly with the front pages of tabloids. And despite the media’s love for spinning Queen Bee’s social life into scandal, Gemma can't stop wreaking havoc with intoxicating TV star Zoe Mercury and indulging in a less than appropriate relationship with international superstar, Tyler Chase.

It was easy keeping things clean with two very separate lives, but now that the line between them is blurring, staying good isn’t going to be easy.

    Teen sensation

    Great book if you want a short read to escape into a world alter egos. Gemma Hunter and Queen Bee are one person sharing two worlds. The book illustrates the dichotomy of fame: the good and bad. She has the best of both worlds being able to pursue her passion while maintaining her identity and a normal life. Through the series she struggles to identify who she is. Love it!

    Awesome

    This was the first book i've read in a while that didnt have any supernatural stuff in it that wasn't required at school. This book is about a girl named Gemma Hunter whos pop star altor ego Queen Bee has a massive amount of confidence and cunning. Well Tyler is still chasing Bee it becomes complicated at her birthday party when she finds someone really likes her. In this book Lucas moves to Tialand and some really interesting sruff goes down between Bee Lucas and Gemma before he does. Tyler becomes a huge threat to Gemma's new boy friend amd she finds Bee walking in the snow of Vermont to her brothers cabin. If you liked "Hidden Gem" you will love the second installment "Diamond in the Rough". I highly recomend this book.

    No one. Pretty doesnt mean the shinest fur or the sparkliest eyes. Pretty is someone who isnt afraid to b theirself.
