Overview

Lavishly disguised pop singer, Queen Bee, is known abroad for her high-fashion wardrobe and killer vocals. In the states, she's just Gemma Hunter - shy suburban teenager in her strange new role of high school junior.

Luckily, Gemma is taken under the wing of the fiery and popular Madison, who leads her into the high school life of the charmed. Her world as Gemma quickly becomes everything she ever wanted in a normal life - that is until international teen heartthrob, Tyler Chase, announces his celebrity crush on Queen Bee. Suddenly, Gemma's alter ego becomes a household name as the handsome singer's loyal "Tyler Chasers" create a frenzy to discover her true identity.

And just when Gemma thinks she can hide from the celebrity drama in her high school life, Lucas - her next door neighbor as well as Madison's boyfriend - develops an interest in her that goes far beyond platonic, and Gemma soon learns that rumors aren't strictly for the stars.

    Amazing free book!

    I usually don't bother with free books since they're usually crap, but the title and summary caught my attention. Plus it's a free book, so what am I out? The beginning wasn't great, but it was enough to keep me reading. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked. Gemma did irritate me at times (such as giving a certain something away at te end of the book), but she's a really likable character and so is Gavin. I think the author did a great job. I was reminded of Hannah Montana and Lady Gaga a little, of course, but Lee was very creative. I didn't find any plot flaws like I was expecting (thay's usually what you get with free books), although I noticed some grammar errors (such as wrong names or words), but not many, ten at the most. The book was long, 467 pages, not what I expected with a free book. I think it's great for teen girls.
    Overall, I recommend Hidden Gem. It's a fun long read.

    Wow!!!!!!!!!! This book was so good i started at 8:00 and finished at 2 in the morning the next morning. Yea you heard
    me right it was just that good. It was the kind of book you couldn't stop reading intell the book was over. I would recamend this book for anyone 12 and up. Please don't listen to some of the reviews that said it was like hannah montannah. It wasn't at all. The only thing that was the same as hannah montannah was the fact that the main character is a pop star and hides her real addenitie. The rest was completley different. If you don't read this book it is your los

    Got to go!!! I'm going to go buy the second book!!! Fingers crossed that it is as good as the first one!!!!!!! :)

    MUST TAP ME AND I AM SERIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The book was great only becaues of the plot,THE BOOK ONLY MUST BE FIR AGES15+, BECAUSE IT TAILKED WAY TOOOO MUCH ABOUT SEX!!!!!!!!!! One part it tells about a couple about have it. Like they were compltele naked and the boy was on her and vefore they did it he asked if she wanred to. She said no.THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!! Another part this popular girl does a trick on queen bee. She spills juice on her shorts on"accident" gets her in her room lets her borrow a short. Right when she has her short off a boy comes tsckles her on the bed and makes it loojk like there having it while the other takes pucture and posts it on the web. So thats just some of it but really it is soooooo not worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Awsome easy read

    I thought this book would be kinda crappy because it was free an sounded alot like hannah montana, of which i wasnt a fan. This first chapter was kind of slow and weird but once you got past it, it was a quick fun and easy read. It was a really long book, which was great and was enjoyable to read. Deffinatly recomend
