R U a PACESETTER?
The Pace Academy Series:
The students at the exclusive private school, Pace Academy in Saddle River, NJ, have everything any teen could ever want or desire at their fingertips—designer clothes, high tech gadgets, chauffeur driven luxury cars, their parent’s platinum credit cards, wealth, and fame. To hell with silver, the spoons in their mouths are platinum and encrusted with diamonds. Even with the best things in life money can buy, there’s still drama to be faced by all teens—be they rich or be they poor: rival cliques, gossip & rumors, jealousy, first loves, and first heartbreaks.
At Pace Academy three friends called the Pacesetters (Starr Lester, Dionne Hunt, and Marisol Rivera) are determined to run things and make sure no one steals their shine.
Meet The Pacesetters:
STARR: Her father owns his own record label and clothing line while her mother, an ex-R&B diva, has a full time job making sure EVERYTHING about the life of her husband and three children are fabulous. Starr doesn’t feel close to her family because they hardly spend any real time together. In fact she feels more of a bond with their maid. She can be catty at times but usually she strikes out to defend herself from feeling hurt.
BOOK 2: FAMOUS | DECEMBER 2011
Fame. Fortune. Friendship. Two out of three ain’t bad…
At prestigious Pace Academy, the Pacesetters make the rules. But in the world outside, being rich and popular doesn’t always get you what you want…
Starr has ambition, charisma, and—thanks to her father’s record company—all the connections to get her group major exposure. Just one problem: Starr can’t sing, and now her friends are looking to replace her with her arch-rival, Natalie…
Dionne is excited about being the rapper of the group—even if her parents don’t approve. But it’s hard to focus on her rhymes when she’d rather be spitting game than writing sixteen bars.
Marisol loves the stage, though it’s dancing, not singing, that’s in her blood. She’d do anything for her friends—except give up her own shot at stardom…
With ego trippin’ and infighting tearing their friendship apart, Starr, Dionne, and Marisol are finding that the big-time comes with even bigger problems…
