    Whyisthisbooksetinthemiddleschoolscene?Seriously, that's what all of this book's problems boil down to. The characters are unbelievable for twelve-year-olds. You have to be kidding me that so many adults would take preteens as seriously as they're taken here. People don't even take ME this seriously and I'm considerably older and less spoiled than these girls.Problematic points:Mac (center of this book) somehow manages to fool a handful of adults while she's playing Emily Mungler's agent. A twelve-year-old playing another twelve-year-old's agent.Coco and Ruby have an audition with a major record company because "some duo has got to become the year's hottest performers". What was the last twelve-year-old duo we've seen make it big? JoJo was thirteen when she took off a zillion years ago and Miley Cirus is everywhere nowadays, but those are the only two examples I can think of in the last five or six years. Most new artists are what, seventeen pushing eighteen?Becks loses the boy she has her eye on to some nondescript chick with a big chest. Again, totally happened when I was in middle school, but really? I mean, is this really what you're trying to feed the readers?I could go on, but it all goes back to what I said in the beginning: Why is this set in middle school? It just kills the series completely. It's pushing not only the limits of the known world, but also the limits of impossibility set forth by other Alloy Entertainment series such as A-List, Gossip Girl and It Girl.The world as we know it has been reduced to a zombie universe where twelve-year-olds are figures of responsibility and authority. I'll probably pick up future books cos I suck like that, but be warned that you'll need major suspension of belief to get over some of the plot twists. This coming from someone who enjoys aforementioned A-List, Gossip Girl and It Girl.

    Who knew Hollywood’s twelve year olds even cared about stuff like this? Or that they were manipulative enough to take down a person’s reputation? It actually makes me wonder if I’d been that bad at that age, and reminds me that this is why I don’t read books about anyone younger than age fourteen anymore. That immaturity level has taken a great toll on my brain, so let’s just say that if I were to babysit anyone, it’d be the kids that range from 2-8 years old. Books wise—yeah, I’ll be sticking to young adult. This doesn't even begin to stretch out to that genre. Please, this should be reshelved back to the children's section.

    Reviewed by Randstostipher "tallnlankyrn" Nguyen for TeensReadToo.comYou have to have TALENT to make it in this world. Meet Bel-Air Middle School's social queens: Mackenzie, Evangelina, and Cordelia. Mackenzie Little-Armstrong has everything, except for one major important thing... talent. It's pretty obvious to Mackenzie that she has no talent, especially when she is compared to her mother, an agent; her father, a screenwriter; her older brother, Jenner, a surfer; and her younger sister, Maude, a genius. It's even obvious to People magazine. So now Mackenzie has to find her talent fast before anyone has the chance to knock her off her high horse. Evangelina Becks is proud to be one of the best female surfers out there. Being out on the waves isn't the least bit scary, but having a crush on her best guy friend, Austin Holloway, is. Can she ignore the feeling she gets whenever he's around, or will she speak up before it's too late? Cordelia Kingsley is a wonderful singer, which makes sense since her mother, Cardammon, is one of the biggest names in the music industry. And since duo groups are in, Cardammon made sure that her daughter was paired up with the perfect person. The only thing is, the other half of this up-and-coming group just so happens to be Mackenzie's enemy. Then there is Emily Mungler who, with her mom and best friend, Paige Harrington, is visiting Hollywood. All the glitz and glamour was just how she expected it to be. Like everyone else, Emily has a talent, a secret talent. So secret that she doesn't even know about it either: she can act. Mackenzie notices Emily's talent and wants to make sure that it doesn't go unnoticed. While trying to help Emily, Mackenzie just might be able to finder her own talent along the way. TALENT is the newest guilty pleasure that will have you hooked. Fans of THE A-LIST and THE CLIQUE now have another series they need to get their hands on.

    An Advance Reader's Copy that I picked up at PLA. A trio of status-obsessed preteen Hollywood girls encounter a visiting midwestern girl with dreams of fame; hijinks, lies, drama, and hurt feelings ensue. There is so much wrong with this, it's hard to know where to start.It's unrealistic. What 12 year old, daughter of the rich&famous or not, looks like the girls on this cover? What 12 year old has an iphone, credit card with (seemingly) no limit and no parental restrictions, frequents nightly "par-tays" full of other rich&famous GROWN UPS, and has a car and driver at their beck and call?And even if there are a few such preteens, which there may be, why choose to fill the heads of average children with thoughts of an unrealistic and unhealthy lifestyle? Second, the whole thing is like one giant product placement add. From page 219:Mac and Emily hopped out of the Prius and into the driveway of the Regent Beverly Wilshire for Kimmie Tachman's party, just as Coco pulled up in her CK-emblazoned Bentley. Mac and Emily had changed in the car, en route from the studio. As planned, Emily wore her gold-and-silver Cavalli disco dress, and Mac wore the micropleated aquamarine Tracy Reese from Fred Segal. Coco had on a plum-colored D&G one-strap minidress, and Mac knew Becks would be wearing the low-backed Versace as instructed.Anyone who knows me knows I abhor censorship, so if you want to read this, by all means go ahead. I'm only disturbed that the author, editors, publicists, and anyone else active in promoting this book would consider it worthy literature to give to the most impressionable section of our society: preteen and teenage girls.

    Talent by Zoey Dean had two main characters': Emily and Mackenzie or Mac. Mac's a girl growing up in Hollywood, California. Mac is accustomed to a extravagant life-style. Her mother is a famous Hollywood agent who "discovers" stars, as in creates the next famous "It person" everyone's dying to be. Mac is used to being Queen of everything and is coming up to eigth-grade in this book. At her school, an eight-grader is elected for Social Chair, which means she's in charge of say uniform policy & dance themes at her school. Mac "needs a talent" to get accepted as Social Chair at her school. Mac really wants Social Chair and she'll do anything for it. Mac discovers "emily skylar", the other main character who is visiting from Iowa and gets into a premiere party uninvited by pretending to be some other girl. Mac then realizesemily can be "it". Mac's moddo for votes becomes, "Elect me for social chair! I made Emily Skylar a star, and I can make BAMS (bel-air middle school) shine too!It's basically a funny story about 1 girl trying to get another famous& doing crazy things, too. I want to find out if Emily does become famous (by landing a role in a new movie) in the next book.

    Meh. The characters were petty. They're all stuck up except for Emily. And Emily is so perfect, you can't even relate to her. Becks... ahhhh! I mean, she is supposedly a good surfer, but really, they never talk about competitions. It seems like she cares more about her "boyfriend" Austin then the actual sport of surfing. Mac is overbearing and bossy, especially in the later books. Coco was ok, but still, I didn't love her. They were just all so fake. The plot was ok, but at the end of the book every one had a problem. Bleh. It was just unrealistic and not my favorite book. This author did seem like she could do better... maybe I'll read another of her books.

    I picked this up at PLA and read it in two hours while home sick on the couch. It's perfect for that.Just like the blurb on the back says, its The Clique meets Entourage. Lots of designer name drops and lots of mean girls and rivalries. As usual Zoey Dean peppers her Tiger Beat writing with references to weird grown up Non Sequiturs (these girls know who David Lynch is?) and the right LA brands (at least as far as I can tell from the myriad of gossip blogs I end up reading). This will move at my library.

    It was a pretty good book - similar to the Clique series - not so much of the A-List - Zoey Dean's famous and bestselling series. The A-List is pretty good, too - but definitely for TEENS and ONLY TEENS. TALENT is a book about girls who are twelve years old - which is why it's more moderate in terms of teen books - unlike the A-List - which is about girls who are in college.

    This book is about a girl named Mac Armstrong, and she deals with challenges throughout the story. Between friendship, boys, and a movie premiere party at the Roosevelt in Hollywood. Mac has to make tough choices that can destroy her relationship between her best friend. Mac starts hanging with a girl that some don't like and she is keeping it from her bff. Mac is also lying to her friends about things that she shouldn't. In the book, Mac realizes she has a talent. I like the part when Mac was doubting herself about at first, but then realized that if she has the talent that everyone else sees in her then she will do it. Mac's friends help her out with the premiere and I thought that was very kind of them to that. What stunned me was the fact that in the beginning of the story, the author says that Mac is a nobody at school and that she was very shy, but her mom is the most powerful talent agent in L.A. That part real1y got me. To find out more about Mac's talent and to see how good of friends she has and to look at what challenges she faced all through out the book, then you will just have to read it.

    It was really good except i didn't like that they were supposed to be 12. They sound like they are 17.

    It was okay. Cliche and basic, but entertaining at times. I didn't like any of the characters, though. And I definitely won't be reading the rest of this series. But I got what I was pretty much expecting with the cover and synopsis and everything. And I guess if you're into superficial catty teenage girl drama with first world problems-correction-upper class problems, then this is the book for you.

    Hollywood life in L.A , no worries, hakuna matata, a rich, talented, golden celebrity life,right? Wrong, almost all the characters in Zoey Dean's "Talent" have problems. Take(Mac)Makenzie Little-Armstrong for example, the daughter of the powerful agent Adrienne Little-Armstrong. Everyone in Mac's family is talented except for her. Is being a rich eighth grade girl at Bel-Air Middle School count as talented or famous? Mac doesn't think so. Mac and her BFFs, Coco& Becks have been ruling the social chair since the day they got there and they're not about to give it up to the suddenly popular, not so fat anymore, amazing dancer, snobby Ruby Goldman! Now Mac needs to find a new talent to prove that she's worthy of the social chair and her famous family. Coco and Becks have their own issues. Coco's mom, Cardammon Kingsley a famous, retired pop-dancer, wants Coco to perform in front of a major dance producer so that her daughter could be famous.Guess who Cardammon partners Coco with? Dean is great in describing Coco's anxiousness about finding out who her dance partner is. Is it Ruby? Becks' problem is, how does she get Austin to like her? The boy who's always been her neighbor and friend just might have changed into her dream boy. Meanwhile, Mac's decided that she want to be a talent agent like her mom. She is on talent spree and finds Emily Mungler. Emily is an ordinary teen visiting L.A from Iowa who acted her way into seeing Davey Woodward, her heart-throb,in an A-list Hollywood glam party. "Corey Woodward, thought Emily, that would work!She knew everything about Davey's family from watching E! 24/7. She remembered that Davey's cousin Corey was her age and had a fake sounding southern drawl which was easy to mimic.Can't be too hard." This would be fantastic for teens who love to read about celebrities, realistic fiction, and humor. "Talent" really good because of the exceptional voice and great description that Dean incorporated. You've got to read it!

    This was a good read. I happened across it in my school library while looking for books to read over Spring Break. The story switches between the view-points of Emily Mungler, a 12-year-old girl on vacation in L.A. with her mother and best friend, Paige, Mackenzie Little-Armstrong, known as Mac, daughter of a very powerful talent agent, on a search for something that will guarantee her leadership of the local middle school for her eighth grade year(to be shared with her friends, of course), and Mac's friends Coco Kingsley (daughter of the famous pop star Cardammon, she desperately wants to follow in her mom's footprints) and Evangelina Becks (passionate surfer reliant on Mac for fashion sense, carrying a new-found crush for her best boy-buddy). When Mac spots Emily wowing the "list-man" at the premiere party for Emily's star crush(Davey Woodward)'s new movie, she realizes that Emily has TALENT, and helping her to the top might be just the gossip that will get her voted Social Chair at school. She immediately swoops onto Emily, and begins the journey to take them BOTH to the top, dragging her friends along with her. The only little thing that bugged me was how a lot was mentioned about clothes. At the party, Mac instantly checks her outfit to make sure she looks okay along with whatever everyone else is wearing, and that she looks effortlessly cute and sassy, while looking at everyone else's outfits to make sure that no one else looks better than she does. The book was always mentioning different designer labels and what each girl chose to wear that day, or what-not. And, me being me, I know absolutely ZIP about that sort of thing, so I never really looked at those parts in the book, merely skimmed over them. How people look at you is NOT always based on wearing designer labels and the perfect outfit, Mac.

    I read the book Talent by Zoey Dean. This book is about a clique of girls that have big dreams to become actresses. Also, this clique of glamorous girls have perfect lives. The characters were very believable and realistic. Throughout the book, Mac, the main character, is in charge of getting Emily ready for her auditions. Emily is casted for a role of a guy, so she has to act like one. Emily is very believable because her actions are “boy like”. Additionally, she dresses like a boy, burps out loud, and wears her pants down low. Mac, is a perfect young teenage girl, with high expectations. I think it is believable that she is the leader of their “clique”. Mac demands things and expects them to be done. I loved reading about their fights and separations. There was not a vivid place where this book took place. The author did not create a strong sense of place. The girls are all over with their weekly shopping activities and their actressing jobs. However, the book Talent was a very fast paced book that carried on with the girls lives. Overall, the book was easy to understand; however, at certain times the story line was complicated. The majority of the book grabbed my attention, but there were parts that were slow. Zoey Dean used descriptive words to describe the girls, their fights, and their outfits. The theme of this book is to choose friends that will support you in good times as well as bad times. I agreed with the author concerning her ideas regarding friendships and relationships. This theme relates to my life as well. Overall, I liked this book and I agreed with the author's theme.

    TalentZoey Dean I like this book, it’s based on the lives of girls around my age, so it’s easier to relate. In the book, a girl named Emily is from a small town, nothing exciting, yet. Thats the same for me, just a regular, boring life. Mackenzie ends up having serious friend issues, which I have had plenty of. This book has got drama, friendship, backstabbing, lies, and secrets. It’s a book where I’d like to have the rest of the series. The main setting of the book is Los Angeles, I’d be more distinctive but there’s not really a smaller main setting than noisy, busy, dramatic Los Angeles. The main characters are (1) Emily Mungler, a bright-eyed talented girl from Iowa who was on vacation where got the chance of a lifetime, to become a movie star. (2) Mackenzie Little-Armstrong (aka Mac) is a determined, preppy kind of gal who spots Emily one night and realizes she has talent. She puts all her effort into helping this Iowa nobody to becoming the Next Big Thing. The main conflict in this book is how Mac is going to make Emily big. Its a fight against time, friendship, enemies, and talent to win the biggest role in Hollywood right now. With mini conflicts from friends, Emily and Mac are in for a bumpy ride. I would recommend this book to others, its a solid eight out of ten at least! I would recommend this to people who like drama, friendship, and battle of the enemies. Its just a good book the opens your eyes and makes you realize truth, trust, and friendship shouldn’t be taken for granted.

    Characters: I hated the characters. I didn't like them, they weren't even the type of characters that you loved to hate, no! They were just horrible. I felt that they all pretty much had the same personalities. They were all plain and boring and you could tell Dean tried to add little things to make then different but in my opinion it didn't work. Sometimes I just wanted to reach in the book and scream at them. Sure there were some moments when it wasn't that bad but they were very rare.Plot: The plot was a bit different than I expected. In some parts I was in love with the story line but in others I felt as if I was forcing myself to finish. The writing style was very plain and there was nothing very good with it. One thing I'll say is that this book definitely doesn't have plot holes. Everything that happened happened for a reason. But the plot was very easy to figure out and I basically knew what was going to happen at the first couple of chapters. I don't know if it was just me but it was very disappointing. Overall: Overall this was not one of my favorites, I didn't like it throughout the book but in the last couple of chapters I got really into it, too late unfortunately. I might continue with the series but its a definitelymaybe .

    Talent by Dean - Mackenzie Little-Armstrong (known as Mac) will be the Social Chair at BAMS (Bel-Air Middle School) no matter what it takes. She’s the daughter of two Hollywood heavyweights, and she has Coco and Becks, her equally wealthy and powerful BFFs, to help her get there. The three are reunited after a summer apart and are accosted at a at Davey Woodward’s Premier party at Tommy’s by Ruby Goldman who looks great and wants the Social Chair position as much as Mac. Feeling talentless compared to her siblings and friends, Mac decides to catapult an unknown girl from Iowa in Hollywood for a week’s vacation and make her a star. Emily had crashed the party hoping to see her crush Davey Woodward and is swept up in the excitement. This was a fun, quick read but the focus on fashion and brands like Versace and Gucci made me want to barf. It would work well for some reluctant readers. The underlying message about the girls each needing to recognize what it is within themselves that drives them is a good one,, but the cattiness and focus on appearance were too much for me.

    well it is about these 2 girls who got to visit Hollywood for 10 days with Emily's mother. They saved up all of their baby-sitting money to but vintage tees. Well when they were there they heard on the tv that their favorite star was at a party at the hotel next to theirs! So when Emily's mom fell asleep they went out and they fooled to get in. When they got in Mac saw Emily trick her way in and decided to make her a movie star. So they talked to emily. Emily said ok but didn't quite believe them. So they had a meeting with Emily's mom. And she said ok. But after they audition, Emily ______________ the part. She was not sad but not happy. But Mac and her mom talked and said that she saw her audition tape and she was great! So Emily ____________ the part after that. She was so excited. Read this book and you figure out what happened!

    It’s all about TALENT in this world!Talent is about a girl named Mac Armstrong who is 13 and lives in L.A. In L.A. it's all about TALENT and who has and who doesn't, and who wants it or who finds it first. When Mac witnesses Emily lying to gain entry to a performance during a movie premier party. When Mac sees this it dawns her that her own talent is to discover it in others. So Mac and her friends set out to prove it and become fresh and new girls so they can go back to school in the fall as the poplars. This is definitely a page-turner with all the drama. One of the best things I learned from this book is that no matter how famous you are friendship always comes first. This book is similar to the Clique Series.

    This book is a book that you would read if you want to hear about gossip, stardom, backstabbing, and complicated friendships in L.A. If you're a down to earth person, i wouldn;t suggest this book. I liked this book because it switched off to different perspectives through out the story to make it a little more interesting, so you know what character is thinking what. It made me not getting irritated or annoyed with a charecter because the whole book wasn't just about them, or what they saw through their eyes.

    I liked this book but i think it could have been better. It is about a girl that goes to the west coast to vist her mom, she goes to a movie premiur, and she gets discoverd. Then she meets 4 girls and they become really close. The point to this book i think is that even when times get tough your good friends will always stay by your side. I really wish they would have spent more time on the ending because it would have been a way better book if they didnt hurry and end it, they should have took more time and made it better.

    I got this book off my sister’s shelf knowing she had read it in fifth grade and expecting an easy read, probably putting it down because I didn’t expect it to be any good. It was. The voice was good and the story was great. It was written for younger readers so there were some times it got a little annoying, but at most times it was a great read. The characters seemed realistic most of the time but at some times they didn’t at all. If I ever wanted to read a book to relax I would definitely consider reading a sequel.
