    • Abstract:
      Summary: The teen reality show Miami Divas made media sensations out of Miami's richest in-crowd, and Maya Morgan is one of them. Now Maya's been offered her very own show, and she'll do whatever it takes to step up the fame, and that includes spilling some secrets her friends wish were left buried. But as Maya gives up the goods, someone will do anything to shut her up. Between backstabbing lies and hard truths, this gossip girl has only one chance to make things right, before it's too late.

Pride goes before the fall, and 17-year-old Maya Morgan is entitlement personified in this first book in the Rumor Central series. Maya and her rich, glamorous, and spoiled friends are the subjects of Miami Divas, a drama- and luxury-fueled reality TV show in the vein of the Real Housewives franchise, until Maya is offered a TMZ-style show of her own. She takes the job, alienating her former costars and getting dumped by her boyfriend. On Rumor Central, Maya is paid to dish the dirt on celebrities and the elite circles she runs in; unlike in Gossip Girl, though, everyone knows who Maya is, making her an instant target. Maya's loose lips and all-around "divatude" lead to arrests, anonymous threats, and failing grades, building to some inevitable wake-up calls. Billingsley's dialogue is on point, and while few teens' realities resemble Maya's, the point of this guilty pleasure is wish fulfillment, sensationalistic scandal, and snappy one-liners. While the story holds few surprises, fans of Ni-Ni Simone, Nikki Carter, and Kelli London should eat up the drama and bad behavior. Ages 14–up. Agent: Sara Camilli Agency. (May)
