I love Lauren Conrad. I've read L.A. Candy; I've read The Fame Game and pretty much excited about the sequel. After what happened with Madison, her father, and Luxe’s diamond in the previous book, Madison decided to plea that she’s the one who took the diamond. That means fewer spotlights for Madison. We will know the continuation of Maddy’s, Kate’s, Carmen’s, Gaby’s, and Sophie’s life after the premiere of The Fame Game.
Trevor still acts like a God in the life of The Fame Game’s casts. Even though being a reality star means fame, money, free clothes and whatsoever, it’s still annoying how your life is taken over by a TV producer. If you've read the previous books, including L.A. Candy series, you’ll know how bitch Maddy was. But in this book, we’ll see another side of her. Because of her plea, she has to do community service in an animal shelter, where she meets a gorgeous man named Ryan. Looks like Maddy finally learns her lesson because in the end, she’s sick with all of those games and manipulations that happen in her life and decides to leave The Fame Game.
Kate Hayes is my favorite girl. She’s a girl that we can relate to. She has big dreams, she’s got talent, but something holding her back. Her stage fright. Just like the entire new debutante, she gets fame’s side effects. Until Trevor sends her back home to remind her of where she came from.
I don’t really like Carmen. Well, every girl has their own problems. She has everything, but maybe it’s not enough for her. She needs her own spotlights. After her ‘triangle love’ with Luke and Kate, she switches Luke into Drew. So maybe it will still be a triangle love, with different boy. It’s not that she really loves Drew, I think it’s more like a jealousy that happens when someone who’s really close to you being taken by other person.
