It looks like the ‘Snow Day Reading’ category is over, because the temperature at FAB Girls headquarters is warm and spectacular! It’s perfect frolic-in-the-park weather, so if you have an eReader, down load this book and take it with you!
The premise of this book is so original and that’s what I loved the most about it. The characters in the book are all going to ‘Hollywood High’, a school where child actors go to become stars.You’ll watch them handle the stress of auditions, call backs and waiting to get roles in television and movies.
The main characters are fraternal twins Bella and Zoey, and Raymond Landou, Jr.
I really liked the plot twist with Raymond’s character. I did not see it coming, and I like when a story is able to suprise me that way. And what happens to Raymond is something that most of us would see as extremely good luck, but he is not able to see it that way right away. So it’s fun to watch him come to terms with his new good fortune.
Bella and Zoey’s storyline includes mean girls, learning disabilities, and delicate family dynamics that give us an inside look into what the emotional toll of stardom might really have on a family.
You may think you want to be a star, and that it’s all fancy cars and five star dishes. This book shows another side of Hollywood for those who are trying to make it. Reading about the kids at Hollwood High proves that everything that glitters isn’t gold, and it will leave you wondering what the lives of your favorite stars are really like.

Congrats to our own FAB Octavia Spencer, who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress!
Meet Ava DuVernay.
FAB Women are having a great year in film this year, and DuVernay is no exception. This year, she made history for becoming the first African American woman to win the US Directing Award for a Drama at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival. ‘Middle of Nowhere’ is the film for which she won the award, and is the second one she directed. ‘I Will Follow’ is the other, and that film received rave reviews as well.
No newcomer to Hollywood, she is the owner of The DuVernay Agency, Public Relations firm that aims to raise awarness of urban and ethnic movies. She wants to change the way people of color are portrayed in film and television. With reality shows and comedies (not to mention the news) often casting people of color in a bad light, we think her mission is pretty FAB.
Watch an interview with the film phenom below!
