Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The details of Chloe’s rise in Hollywood are an enjoyable blend of believably realistic and fancifully easy. Chloe herself is...delicious...she’s a single-minded Machiavel, but her narration also reveals that she’s funny and imperfect.... a determined and charismatic adventuress."
Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books

"I found my favorite book ever! I loved this book, from the bottom of my heart—I loved it! It's as simple as that. I loved the story, the writing the characters—all of it! I am going to go totally unprofessional and end this review right here because all I need to tell you is that it's an amazing book and all of you will love it. There's something for everyone in it and you all will enjoy it..."
—Vita Dei (vitadei.blogspot.com)

"This young adult novel alternates between charm and humor–and the gritty reality of show business and life in the big city. Decter's characters are so realistically drawn you can almost feel the blood pulsing in their veins, and you find yourself trying to anticipate the reactions of Chloe, her brother Travis, and her mom, Earlene, to the curves Hollywood tosses them."
—The Mystery Bookstore

"It was refreshing to read about someone who wouldn’t let anything stand in her way, while she still maintained some morals.... I also liked how she and Travis actually had a nice relationship.... I also liked the rotating points of view.... Nika Mays’s narration was useful because it...explained things about Hollywood.... There was tons of delightful drama and scandal... I’ll definitely be reading the sequel...as the book ended with a GIANT CLIFFHANGER OF DOOM."
—Frenetic Reader (freneticreader.blogspot.com)

"I loved that both Nika and Chloe told the story. Chloe brought the fierce, power-hungry side, while Nika showed up the reality of the situation. It really made the story come together in a way that I could understand. Coming from Ohio, I don't really think I could have understood everything about the industry if Nika hadn't explained it to me. Chloe realllly inspired me. She never stopped. And I mean NEVER. For god's sake she was a whirlwind! And pushy too. I would hate to be the executive between her and her dream. I can only hope that when I want something that badly, I will go after it with as much willpower as Chloe did. I only recommend this to readers who want a taste of that fast-paced Hollywood world. This is definitely NOT a fluff chick-lit book. Noo siree." And you can be sure I will totally be reading the sequel. Without a doubt."
—That One Girl Emily (thatonegirlemily.blogspot.com)

"I loved how the different perspectives made up this book.... I loved the characters especially Chloe and Travis because they're just so amazing.... Overall, I highly enjoyed The One and I can't wait until the next one because the cliff-hanger...IS ENORMOUS!"

    Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo.com

    You will either hate Chloe Gamble or you will love her. I came away from reading THE ONE absolutely spellbound by Chloe and eager for more in the follow-up, VIP LOUNGE.

    When Chloe's mom catches her dad with another woman, it's all the ammunition Chloe needs to finally convince her mom to get out of the situation, get in the car with her twin brother, and drive all the way to L.A. Chloe grew up in the world of beauty pageants. She knows how to win and give the judges what they want. With $10,000 from her latest win, the three begin a new life in California. L.A. is a long way from Nowhere, Texas.

    Chloe doesn't follow the rules. But she insists that her brother, Travis, stay out of trouble. With a bold plan, Chloe takes L.A. by storm. Her first ambitious task is to get both of them enrolled into the best private school, on scholarship. When she's given the cold shoulder, she has Travis pull out his secret weapon, and just like that, they're in.

    But Chloe isn't infallible. She makes a serious faux pas when she sneaks into an audition for a hot new show. It isn't until after she's escorted out that she realizes how huge a mistake she's made. But Chloe isn't out of the game. With a few choice connections, she slowly learns the ropes of L.A. and is ready for round two.

    Told from different perspectives, the reader gets an inside glimpse of the acting scene in Los Angeles. Peeks into Chloe's agent's manuscript set the story up for further intrigue and mystery in follow-up novels. Emails from Travis to his friends in Texas share the high side of life in California. And the majority of the story is told by Chloe and her determination to be IT and surpass people like the obnoxious Kimber that she meets in her early days after the move.

    Can't wait until December!!!

    This book was very good, I can't wait until the second book comes out in Decemeber. It was very creative and it had a lot of information about how the acting buisness is. The character Chloe Gamble is absolutly brilliant, she knows what she wants and she gets it... always!

    Fast-Read!

    I've read this book faster than any other book I've read (not including Twilight series). I couldn't put it down and it is a "been done before" story but you'll really be rooting for the main character Chloe and waiting to find out what she'll get away with next.
