{Handlebar Blog Tour} Hello Stars (Faithgirlz / Lena in the Spotlight) by Alena Pitts (Author), Wynter Pitts (Contributor)

Book Description:  Lena Daniels never thought she’d get the chance star in a movie. Headstrong and determined, she has her life planned out to the minute. But when her best friends, Savannah and Emma, tell her about an audition, she knows there’s nothing else in the world she’d rather do. And now that she’s gotten her wish, Lena finds that being in the spotlight is harder than it sounds. She got everything she never wanted! Her face turns up everywhere she goes, and everything in her life is flipped upside down. Lena wonders if this is a dream come true or a horrible nightmare. Even a visit from her best friends during filming turns into a disaster.

My Thoughts:  I've always liked Faithgirlz.  Young teens/tweens, girls between the ages of 8-12 need something good to read too.  And Faithgirlz delivers a great message to this tween group.
In Hello Stars Lena Daniels finally gets a chance to star in a movie.  Every young girl's dream.  
I like the way the author of this story brings out the trials of being a star.  It's not all that it seems to be popular and have all that one wants.
As the story progresses Lena learns that having her sisters with her is an added plus.  But she also comes to realize that she is an example to them.  
This is a great story for tween girls.  Learning that being a star and being in the spot light is not all glitz and glamour.
Just an added note this Faithgirlz series entitled Lena in the Spotlight, written by Alena Pitts, star of War Room and tween blogger of For Girls Like You, and co-written with her mother, editor and author, Wynter Pitts, is a reflection of Alena’s own life experiences as she reaches for the stars and keeps her faith in balance.
