Real life.....that is just what this book is about. The real life of Chelsea and her friend (well, no not her friend) her classmate Dina. Because Dina just moved and Chelsea just recovered from Mono they are both starting school a month late and that means that they get stuck working on a big project, together. Can they come together to create a project for the school's 50th anniversary party? What if you throw in Chelsea's snobby friends, Dina's stalking habits, their families (and all THEIR drama!), a search for a famous movie star to help with the project and of course a boy or two and you have DRAMA but not a successful project. This book has characters who you will love and hate, you will want to laugh and scream and best of all you will want a sequel. A great read for grades 4-7.

Lisa Greenwald really gets pre/teens. Through the book you can see how Dina, and Chelsea melt into friends, and how they realize things about the people around them that actually connects to actual life. "Reel Life Starring Us" is a great read for anyone (except maybe a guy, cause I don't think they'll get it).

3.5 stars/Fiction; Young AdultReel Life Starring Us is a story about Dina and Chelsea. The new student and Miss Popularity of the 8th grade class who assigned to work together on a school project. Dubbed as 'opposites' in their social standing, both girls find out they are not as different as they appear to be on the surface.Junior High is hard. No matter what the year and I think these types of books bring to light some very real situations that our [female] young adults can identify with. Being a Mom of an 8th grade daughter, I felt this book had a genuine and realistic view of middle school from the student's perspective. I enjoyed how Greenwald rotated the chapters of the book back and forth between Dina and Chelsea to give both characters an opportunity to share their unique viewpoint.While not entirely a new middle school concept (or conflict) to the YA genre, I found the video project to be an interesting project for them to work on and the relationship that developed between the two characters rewarding. The story unfolded at a good pace and was well written. I will encourage my daughter to read this one.Recommended.

This book was really good. Dina the main character faces real problems a new girl in school might. Boys, popular girls and talent. This book starts on a chapter that says Dina that neans it's from Dinas point of view. When the chapter has Chelsa on the top it means it is from Chelsas point of view. I got confused at first and i want you guys to enjoy the book so yea but its a really great book i was addicted and in love with this book. To read my next review which is going to be my 4th review please go to what i call life luv u all and thanks for reading
