Overview


The Posse is the story of what happens after the big finale of a reality TV competition, and of a small town girl's ride through Hollywood. When seventeen-year old Jacey Chandliss enters and wins Generation Next: America's Top Young Actress, an American Idol-type contest that offers the winner a star-making role in a major Hollywood motion picture, she's thrust into the bright Hollywood spotlight. She's got a bonafide Hollywood power-agent, and she's living in L.A. for the summer. It's all a lot to handle, and Jacey would probably buckle under the pressure if she didn't have her friends along for the ride. Her best friends Dash and Desi and her cousin Ivy are part of Jacey's Posse. They're going to Hollywood with Jacey to keep Jacey from going Hollywood.

Gr 9 Up
After winning on Generation Next: America's Top Young Actress , a reality TV program, Jacey Chandliss has her entire world turned upside down. She goes from being a nobody to living it up in Hollywood as America's sweetheart. Along with the perks of being a star-including unlimited money-Jacey also has to deal with the downside of life in the spotlight. An anonymous person has started a blog about her, and it's full of nasty rumors and information that only someone close to her would know. Luckily she has her posse-Ivy, Desiree, and Dash-to help her out. She doesn't go anywhere without them and she trusts them with her life-but is one of them the blogger? Fans will just have to wait for the sequel to find out. This book will appeal to readers of chick-lit series such as Cecily von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" (Little, Brown). There is drug use and underage drinking, but it's basically there to prove that the characters are not flawless. Although Jacey has a boyfriend and there is talk of sex, it never goes beyond talk. In typical Reisfeld fashion, this fun and silly novel is a perfect summertime read.
