Overview

Livvie Peterson thought taking Interpersonal Communications her junior year would be an easy A. But when the first assignment is given, her world flips upside down. Here’s the deal: the class is assigned a six-week project and is split into three groups— Paparazzi, Tabloid, and Celebrities. The Paparazzi follow around the Celebrities taking pictures and grabbing any kind of quotes they can. The Celebrities try to navigate being tailed on a daily basis. And the Tabloid receives all the information collected by the Paparazzi and decides what makes the weekly summary report. Sounds harmless…and it’s all just pretend anyway, right?

Livvie is assigned as Paparazzi and when she is matched up with the über -cute Chas Montgomery as her Tabloid boss she’s pretty sure things couldn’t get much better. Livvie’s uncanny ability to capture the Celebrities in compromising photos matched with Chas’s skill of exaggerating captions and editing the photos make them an unstoppable team. And the long hours working side by side with Chas aren’t a bad bonus.

Livvie simultaneously launches an anonymous blog, leaking the class’ photos and stories on the Internet. Her rising follower number quickly becomes addicting and she possibly spills too much information online. Once she finds her own celebrity will she be able to give it back? And will Chas be gone before she ever has the chance to find out?

THE PAPARAZZI PROJECT is an approximately 50,000 word young adult novel, written by the author of THE ESPRESSOLOGIST and the best-selling MY FAKE BOYFRIEND IS BETTER THAN YOURS.

Editorial Reviews

http://www.kristinaspringer.com/reviews.html - Jennifer Jabaley
"The Paparazzi Project is an interesting look at gossip and rumors and how they can so easily color our perceptions. Livvie is a spunky character whose school project quickly turns into a fast paced, roller coaster adventure!" - Jennifer Jabaley, award winning author of Lipstick Apology and Crush Control
http://dizneeeesworldofbooks.blogspot.com/2013/01/review-paparazzi-project.html - Lisa Austin
The plot was 100% completely relative to our lives today. Whether it's a pre-teens, teenagers, young adults, or even older adults. The Paparazzi Project focuses on capturing certain people in situations and how pictures can be misconstrued and lies and rumors can spread. Quickly! The Paparazzi Project is a completely relevant story in our day and age. The story fits so many situations with students and adults. If you love fun, quick, and relevant stories, this is really one to read!

This YA, chick lit novel is a fast, fun read, with loads of humor, but some important insights, as well, about privacy and integrity in our fast-paced, media-driven, high-tech society.
I read the Kindle edition of this book. It is well-designed and well-edited, making it a pleasure to read.
I had previously read and very much enjoyed another YA chick lit novel by this author, The Espressologist, and I strongly recommend it to fans of this book.

"Want to be famous? Be careful what you wish for. Celebrity isn't all it seems to be in Kristina Springer's glittering story of supercharged high school drama. Secrets, lies, and hidden romance bubble to the surface when an impromptu school assignment goes too far. As Emily Dickinson said, "Fame is a fickle food," but for a sensational read, THE PAPPARAZI PROJECT is a sure thing!" - Kristin Walker, author of A Match Made in High School and Seven Clues to Winning You
Mundie Moms - Sophie Riggsby
While the book looks like a fast, light, fun read, it has an unexpected depth in its comment on our culture. Don't get me wrong, it was definitely well paced and parts of it contained a sweetness that was fun to read. But, there was also more to it (which I loved). It played with the very question I asked my daughters as we walked past the paparazzi outside that hotel -- "Why do we care who they're waiting to photograph?"

    The Paparazzi Project is a quick, fun teen book. The author did a really good job of making you want to learn more about the characters. I never liked the neighbor girl, though, and wished Lizzie would have stood up to her! Good book over all. Fun to read!
