5.0 out of 5 stars
A book I'll never forget!!!!!!!, 14 April 2003
I'd wanted to get this book for ages but I thought I shouldn't because I'm already reading six different series'. When I saw "Pop Princess" in a magazine for free, I thought it was a sign - so I got it (I'm sooo glad).
It's about a girl, Becca, who thinks she's FAT (I can relate to that!). She has a GOOD VOICE but not the confidence to go with it. So when she's DARED by her BOYFRIEND to enter the "Pop Princess" competiton, she's determined to show what she's made of.
"Pop Princess" contains a range of realistic issues, like: enemies, jealousy, flirting, nastiness, fun, happiness, friends, dissapointment...
I would definately say this book is written fantastically (- Cathy Hopkins is a real great author, I was already reading a series by her), when Becca is auditioning you (as the reader) really feel the nerves. I recieved major butterflies!!
You also feel the nerves when the judges announce who's getting thruogh tho the next round.
I love singing and I wish that there really were "Pop Princess" auiditions - I'd be right there!!!!
This book is GREAT (with a capital G). For all you budding stars, dreamers, teenagers - anyone who likes teenage fiction or if you just fancy a change... READ THIS BOOK!
