Overview

From the critically acclaimed author of True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet comes this incredibly fun sequel.

Just when Morgan Carter is falling in love with the simple life she built incognito in Fort Wayne, Indiana, her true identity as an infamous Hollywood starlet is outed and she's forced to return to LA.

While most girls would give anything for a life filled with celeb-studded parties, constant press coverage, and mega-fame, for Morgan going home is more complicated than it seems. Hollywood holds deep, dark secrets that Morgan has yet to confront. Secrets that could ruin everything.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Claire Rosser
More gossipy stuff for all those YA readers who love to think about celebrities and dream about their lives. Escape fluff, but harmless: Morgan is a successful child star (now a teenager) whose alcoholism and drug habits led to rehab and a hidden life away from Hollywood. She lives with a guardian in Indiana, of all places. In the first book, True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet, her identity is revealed. Now she lives in Indiana as herself, but finds that "normal" friendships and high school romance are increasingly difficult, especially after everyone in town sees her on Oprah. At Thanksgiving she returns to Hollywood for a few days, trying to cope with her pushy mother and the unwanted attentions of a male star. Even her agent hypes the publicity about that so-called romance. Morgan is harboring a secret. When she was 14, this star raped her when she was drunk. He hardly remembers; she is devastated by the memories and hates him, but blames herself as well. The story takes on some substance when Morgan finally lets this secret out and deals with the consequences. All readers who liked the first book will certainly want to read this sequel. Much of it is nearly over the top, but it is appealing.
Kirkus Reviews
The continuing travails of 17-year-old Morgan, genuine movie star, as she tries to live like a normal teenager in the Midwest, come across with delightful zing, yet address serious subjects. Morgan deals with first love, old enemies, best friends, new enemies, weight gain, hairstyles, fashion and her selfish mother, all the while fending off the horrid paparazzi and tabloid press. With all of that, she's inches away from her first-year sobriety token when she's thrown together with the celebrity who raped her years ago. Written in diary-style, this sequel picks up right where the opener left off, with little explanation of what has gone before. As such, it barely stands on its own, but for fans who want more, it delivers. Douglas manages the lightest of styles while delving into deep issues for adolescents. Fun, breezy entertainment with thoughtful undertones. (Fiction. YA)

I picked up the first book without much confidence that I was going to enjoy it, but I ended up finishing it within 3 days. I immediately ordered this one. It's a great easy ready and I absolutely loved reading it. The ending was ambiguous however, and I would love to see a third book!

Yes, it does follow the trend of books starring celebrities, but it does so wonderfully, even for those of us who haven't read the prequel.

In MORE CONFESSIONS OF A HOLLYWOOD STARLET, Morgan Carter's average life in Fort Wayne, Indiana, has once more become the life in the spotlight she went to Fort Wayne to escape. Now, Morgan's life is getting to be a bit too much to handle: her boyfriend's mother doesn't want Morgan, a recovering addict, dating her son; Morgan's mother wants her back in LA and the spotlight; and sorting out the parts of her life that would be complicated enough if she were just an ordinary teenage girl, like school and friendships.

This novel is emotional and honest--Morgan is surprisingly real. Engaging prose and likeable characters make this book more than just fun (which is what much of the premise is), but actually serious and really good. I'll certainly be looking for the first book, and hoping for another!

This is seriously one of my favorite books! It was even better than the first one. I could not put it down. By the end of the book you feel connected to Morgan. I found myself encouraging her and rooting her on. It was amazing!!

More Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet is a great sequel to the first. The book is about a young Hollywood actress named Morgan Carter. Morgan was sent to Fort Wayne, Indiana to deal with her sobriety. She goes by the false identity of Claudia Miller. But then someone found out her secret. Now, Morgan has to decide whether she wants to go back to Hollywood or try to live a normal life. But living a normal is not that easy anymore. She has the paparazzi following her everywhere and one very dark secret coming back to haunt her. At school people are treating her differently. There are some people who are being nice to her just because she is an actress, and some people who are creating horrible rumors about her. I liked this book for a few reasons. One reason is because it caught my attention right at the beginning and kept a hold of it until the end. I didn't want to put the book down. Another reason I liked the book is because it deals with some real life issues. It deals with issues such as friends, family, trust, dating, and rape. This is a great book for teens and young adults. It has a mixture of sad, happy, and humorous moments. There are a few mature parts, but it is still a very good book. I would recommend this book to anyone I meet. I suggest that you pick up this book and read it.
