Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Barbara Johnston
Protagonist Sunday Tolliver is juggling freshman year at Spelman College with her blossoming career as a recording star. Off balance and smarting from former boyfriend Sam's cheating, Sunday determines they will team up only for song-writing. Hot-looking DeShawn is just a friend now, but his sweet nature may keep Sam in yesterday. Meanwhile, Sunday's "besties," Gia and Piper, also embroil Sunday in their romance drama, while Dreya, Sunday's cousin and recording competitor, flaunts hers for career advancement. Magnify the melodrama more with the fact that Sunday has college grades to maintain and assignments to complete. Although momentarily tempted by Dreya's purchased term paper, Sunday makes an ethical decision and exhibits growing maturity in the romance department. How many young girls have not dreamed about being a glamorous superstar? Sunday invites them into her sparkly world of award shows, celebrity weddings, designer dress fittings, and limo rides. The fantasy escalates when Sunday buys a mansion—complete with instant professional decorating, a pool, and a full house-keeping staff—and moves in with her besties, including DeShawn. The reading adventure provides young readers with escape from the rocky times in their own lives. In spite of cliched situations and characters, this novel supports sound moral values and is competently crafted. Reviewer: Barbara Johnston
Kirkus Reviews
The fifth installment in Carter's Fab Life series revisits some familiar territory but still delivers its proven mix of music-industry insiderdom, interpersonal drama and solid, affirming friendships. As in the previous titles, practical, self-possessed Sunday Tolliver narrates. Now a consistently successful recording artist and songwriter as well as a student at Spelman College, Sunday is juggling her career, her new set of college friends and her academic work. In this volume, Sunday attends the wedding of her mentor Mystique, makes amends with her cousin and rival recording artist Dreya, and attends the Grammy Awards as a nominee. Romantic tension provides the biggest arc in the book. After finding out that her one-time boyfriend Sam lied about his involvement with another girl, Sunday has broken off their relationship. It is clear, however, that both parties miss each other, and Sunday's stubborn insistence that Sam did wrong, despite some evidence to the contrary, can be exasperating at times. Although the plot is more modest than in some of the earlier books, new and returning characters are developed, and the door is left open for music tours and family drama in future installments. A solid entry in a successful series. (Fiction. 12-16)
