Waiting on Wednesday (28): Starstruck

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

It has to be said: I loathe this cover. However, I still want to read it because OLD HOLLYWOOD. Hell to the yeah that sounds awesome. Obvi, this topic could be done well or it could be the Old Hollywood Gossip Girl, but I'm hoping for the former. *crosses fingers*


Author: Rachel Shukert
Expected Publication Date: March 12, 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Synopsis from Goodreads:
A golden age of glam . . .

Every week they arrive in Los Angeles--beautiful and talented young hopefuls who dream of becoming stars. It's all Margaret Frobisher has ever wanted—and when she's discovered by a powerful agent, she can barely believe her luck. She's more than ready to escape her snobby private school and conservative Pasadena family for a chance to light up the silver screen.

The competition is fierce at Olympus Studios and Margaret—now Margo—is chasing her Hollywood dreams alongside girls like Gabby Preston, who at 16 is already a grizzled show-biz veteran caught between the studio and the ravenous ambition of her ruthless mother, and sultry Amanda Farraday, who seems to have it all--ambition, glamour . . . and dirty secrets. Missing from the pack is Diana Chesterfield, the beautiful actress who mysteriously disappeared, and there are whispers that Diana's boyfriend—Margo's new co-star—may have had something to do with it. Margo quickly learns that fame comes with a price, and that nothing is what it seems.

Set in Old Hollywood, Starstruck follows the lives of three teen girls as they live, love, and claw their way to the top in a world where being a star is all that matters.

Ah! So excited for this now! I think it would have been better if they'd gone for a dark retro red instead of fuschia. She's got the Veronica Lake hair going for her but bad coloring.
