What they want is fame.
All they have is drama.

Welcome to Louis B. Armstrong, New York City's most prestigious performing arts school, where the gifted, wanna-be starlets, and It Chicks are all on the rise. But when rehearsals give way to hot and heavy after-school sessions away from the barre and without the mic, the real drama begins.

Meet the hottest cast in town:

Tangie, the Dreamer. Skye the Drama Queen. Eden the Bombshell. Trey the Bad Boy. CJ the Thug with the Heart of Gold. Izzy the Wild Child. Regina the Silent Threat. And the Entourage: Marisol, Kamillah, Blackadocious, Vineet, and Lyle.



They're all playing the fame game and will do whatever it takes to nail it.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jennifer Rummel
This novel follows the super popular girls of the Louis Armstrong Academy of Performing and Creative Arts in New York City for one week. Tangie just started as a sophomore (she did not make the freshman auditions) where her BFF (Best Friend Forever) Syke rules the It Chicks and the It Chicks rule the school with their glamour, talent, and popularity. Sophomores Skye, Kamillah, Regina, and Tangie spend the week working on their craft, partying, and hooking up with guys. The drama in the book is not just for outside the classroom. All the classes are intense, especially during the first week of school because that is when students are chosen to audition for the Fall Fling Spotlights, the ultimate chance to showcase one's talent. Everyone is crazy competitive for the chance to shine. It is all about who you know to get ahead of the pack. Give this book to those who liked the movie Step Up! Williams writes an "urban lit" novel of similar style to the Gossip Girls books. The ending hints at a sequel. The street lingo might take a little getting use to, but the drama becomes addicting and readers will not believe that it happens in just one week.
