Zoey Dean's Talent

Mac Little-Armstrong has the ideal life: she's pretty, popular, rich, has a great and loving family and wonderful friends. But she's missing only one thing--a talent. She's surrounded by many talented friends and people, but yet can't seem to find one thing she's gifted at. Until one night she sees Midwesterner Emily Mungler cajoling security into letting her into one of the most exclusive after parties in Hollywood, and realizes that this small town girl has It. She's got the talent to make it as the new big actress, and only Mac recognizes it. Now she'll have to do the nearly impossible: teach Emily the Hollywood ropes and land her the most sought after role in the surefire blockbuster movie along side the hunky Davey Woodward. She'll have her work cut out for her…

Zoey Dean's Talent takes a fresh new spin on the boring privileged teen genre. The plot is one that is fast paced, awesome, and one that is easily believable. The characters have a tendency to be a little vain and quite materialistic, but their attitudes and personalities are a clear representation of young teens today. But Talent isn't all about the fabulous clothes and jobs--staying true to your friends, honesty, and loyalty are very present throughout the story, and add just the right touch of reality to the plot, making Talent a wholesome, yet deliciously fun and summery read.

Talent will be available from Razorbill on June 19th, 2008!

i loved this book! throughout the whole book i imagined the girls on the cover as their characters. they fit perfectly. does anyone know the name of the model in the middle? i think that if they make this a move she should play the role because shes gorgeous and fits the part perfectly in my mind.
