About the Book:
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.
With her little sisters—Ansley, Ashton, and Amber—and her mischievous pup, Austin, constantly at her side, Lena must face the challenges of everyday life while chasing her dreams of being a model and actress on the big screen. Lena tackles tough choices, learns the value of perseverance, and keeps her hopes high. She knows her faith and family will keep her feet on the ground and her eyes on the stars.
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.
Review by Teen Scene Writer – Riah
The book Hello Stars, written by Alena Pitts with her Mom Wynter Pitts is about a twelve-year-old girl who decides to audition for a movie in order to possibly meet her all time favorite singer. The book was very vivid and descriptive. The characters were well-developed and showed all of their different and unique personalities.
The book had lots of exciting and fun moments, but it also had disappointing and serious moments as well. In the book Lena learned many lessons and learned a lot about herself and her relationship with God. I liked that the events in the story showed the downsides and ups and downs and the fact that things don’t always go as planned. Sometimes things, circumstances and situations don’t always work out perfectly in the end. This was an awesome book and it is perfect for girls ages 8-12. I really enjoyed reading the book. Hello Stars would be a great resource for a tween or teen book club. Let me know what you think!
