Talent by Zoey Dean
Mackenzie Little-Armstrong is the undisputed leader of Bel Air Middle School and the daughter of the most powerful agent in LA. Mac has it all, except for one thing: her own special talent. But when Mac spies wide-eyed Midwesterner Emily Mungler faking her way past the velvet rope at a super-exclusive premiere party, she vows to make this natural actress an overnight star. And of course, prove that she has her very own talent--discovering talent.
The Clique meets “Entourage” in this story of two twelve-year-old girls, their meteoric rise to the top, and the best friends who hang on for the wild ride.
Talent was a good story that I enjoyed. Zoey Dean’s main focus in the book seemed to be friendship and I really enjoyed that. Mac was really focused on winning social chair of her school and she started ignoring her friends, but I liked that at the end Mac began to realize that a certain position wasn’t as important as keeping her friends. Talent is a quick and fun summer read. The story line was good and I enjoyed all of the characters. This is the first book that I’ve read by Zoey Dean and I look forward to reading more of her books.
