"THIS IS NOT A SCHOOL MUSICAL, THIS IS MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SEEING YOU, RECOGNIZING YOU, CRITICIZING YOU. THIS IS IT. PUBLIC PERSON -- THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY. ARE YOU READY?"

When fifteen-year-old Wonder Blake is plucked from her job at the Dairy Queen and given the chance to become a teen idol, it seems like a dream come true -- even if it wasn't her dream, but her older sister Lucky's. Lucky was on her way to becoming a pop star when she died, and Wonder and her family are still trying to recover from their loss. Offered a recording contract, Wonder jumps at the chance to escape from a dead-end town, her fractured family, and worst of all, high school. Suddenly she has it all: a hot new look, a chart-busting hit single, a tour opening up for superstar Kayla. But stardom isn't all glamour -- it's also lots of work. And maybe what Wonder really wants is as simple as a guy who likes her for herself.

With spark and humor Rachel Cohn captures the struggles and glories of an ordinary teenage girl's climb to celebrity. As Wonder rises through the pop-princess star-making machine, she also learns the price -- and that maybe being an ordinary teenage girl isn't so bad after all.

I really enjoyed this book. I would've given a different ending but it's a very good book for teens. It had some emotional moments and I almost cried, but there were also some parts that touched you and made you happy for Wonder.

About the author (2004)

Rachel Cohn is the author of Gingerbread, which Teen People proclaimed "unforgettable," and the middle-grade novel The Steps, which Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, cited for its "funny and feisty narrator caught in the middle of a complicated family situation." Rachel lives in Manhattan, although through a complicated web of sublets, frequent-flyer miles, and couch-crashing in San Francisco and Los Angeles, she tries to consider herself bicoastal.
