"Izzy's Popstar Plan" by Alex Marestaing

{Congrats to Diane E. for winning a copy of ‘A Fool and His Monet’! We have emailed you for your address! :) }

About this book:

  Izzy Baxter has big plans—popstar plans.
  Ever since she was six, she’s dreamed of becoming the world’s next singing sensation. Now sixteen, her singing career is on the rise, and she’s been selected to compete on the hit TV show International Popstar Challenge. As Izzy performs in far off locations such as Tokyo and Paris, it seems as if her plans are coming off without a hitch. But God has plans of His own, and Izzy will soon discover that living for Him is “way cooler” than megastar fame.
  Presented like a daily blog, set up like a devotional, and read like a novel—this book will be an instant hit with tween girls.

I wasn’t sure what you expect with this book, but it turned out being cute. Corny at times, but still pretty cute. The web diary/devotional format was an interesting touch.
