Overview

Cassidy Barnett is not your average twelve- (almost thirteen!-) year -old. While most other girls her age are worries about school and clothes and boys, Cass has spent most of her life traveling the world with her travel TV-show-host parents. She gets to visit fabulous places and loves connecting with people via her popular blog.

But when the producers of the show decide that they want to feature Cass on camera, all of that starts to change. Now she's got to think about what she says, how she looks, and what the world is saying about her. Because like it or not, it's LIGHTS, CAMERA, CASSIDY! 

In this first episode, the show's producers arrange for Cassidy to be shown around Valencia, Spain, by a local teen (and a cute one at that!). Things are going well - until Cass unwittingly catches a criminal in the act on her video blog, and she's thrust into the spotlight. To top it all off, her old friend Logan returns to the show. He's older now and . . . well, cuter. As things with the blog start to heat up, Cassidy finds that she doesn't know who is a friend, who is a crush, and who just wants her story for the tabloids!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rolling TV cameras, an exotic Spanish setting, a pair of boy crushes, and unexpected fame for a 12-year-old give the Lights, Camera, Cassidy series a spirited launch. Accustomed to watching her parents' reality TV travel show from the sidelines, Cassidy gets her chance to step into the limelight when the network requests that she get more airtime, given the growing popularity of her blog. That prospect is more appealing when she discovers she'll be sharing camera time with Mateo, the "way cute" Spanish son of her father's friend. But the spotlight becomes overly bright as Cassidy makes media headlines after a video she films for her blog implicates a powerful mobster in an international smuggling operation. Readers should enjoy the behind-the-scenes glimpse of reality TV, but it's lively and relatable Cassidy (who finally realizes that her friendship with the director's son has morphed into something deeper) who steals the show. She's entirely capable of carrying Gerber's (the Death by Bikini Mysteries) series, which lands her in Greece in Paparazzi, simultaneously available. Ages 9–up. Agent: Elaine Spencer, the Knight Agency. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Alicia Jensen
Cassidy Barnett is your average twelve-year-old girl (almost thirteen), if average means traveling around the world with your parents and their reality TV travel show. Cassidy's life has consisted of hotel rooms, a private tutor, very few friends, blogging, and staying out of the spotlight...that is until now. Cassidy has been asked to be more involved in her parents show. Cassidy is ecstatic to spend more time in front of the camera; however Cassidy is a nervous wreck as a new cute local boy, Mateo, and a former friend, Logan, join the show. In a moment of mischief Cassidy sneaks out of her hotel room to capture some pictures and video footage of Valencia, Spain; little did Cassidy know that she would accidentally capture a famous criminal in the act, posting it to her blog for the whole world to see. Cassidy is stuck in Spain as a material witness, and dealing with the new emotions of her first teenage crush. Now Cassidy, who has been sitting on the sidelines for years, is all over the news and dodging paparazzi everywhere she goes. Readers will be smiling and laughing along with Cassidy as she deals with two new boys in her life and in front of the camera for everyone else in the world to watch. Cassidy is a fun, loveable character, whom readers will look forward to following in Gerber's two other books about Cassidy. Reviewer: Alicia Jensen
