Like "Love," I enjoyed Fredericks' next installment in the In the Cards series, "Fame." Unlike other sequels/follow-ups, it did take me a while to get into this on, though, and I think the reason is that the narrator's voice changed from Anna to Eve in this book. Eve's voice, like her personality, is a lot different from Anna's, and it was a little discombobulating at first. Once I got used to the switch, though, it was very interesting to see the same people and school culture from a different ...more

I like the way this book continues the story line. I think Eve make the worst decisions based on the cards of all of the three girls. She used them as an excuse not to prepare for school, auditions, anything, and she really messes herself up. I think she grows less through the course of the book than her friend did, but she is learning.

It was pretty typical. Eve was the type of girl who wanted to be a famous star. She gets the chance to make her dream come true and all that. She's afraid what the cards will show--an award for being an outstanding actress or something as pathetic as shoving pop corn in her mouth while watching a TV show?

It wasn't really, really bad, though. There are some good things about the book. I'm giving it two stars.

The second book of the In The Cards trilogy. Eve has Anna read the cards to see if she will get the lead in the school production of Cabaret. The cards seem to indicate success, but Eve will have to achieve her success at the expense of someone else. Is fame under those circumstances worth it? Are there some prices that are just too high? A tale of teenage desire, meanness, and self sacrifice.

This was possibly the hardest one to read of all 3 books- Eve was just a very frustrating character to have to read. I could understand her conquest to become a brilliant star- but she seemed like a bad friend- i felt as if she took advantage of everybody around her because she just wasn't used to hearing the word no and when she does hear it she had a hissy fit.

This is a great book, becuase there are some people who think they have the fame by some cards but hey really dont... one day a boy started to ask what if we really became famous, so he made a lot of ways to become famous... are they going to become famous or waht is going to happen? ...more

I thought this book was just okay. It was slightly cheesy and pretty typical. It was not a bad book or that Mariah Fredericks is a bad author, although I do think it would have been enjoyed more by a younger age group.

Mariah Fredericks is the author of the bestselling novel The True Meaning of Cleavage, which Meg Cabot called "Laugh-out-loud funny and way twisted!"

Mariah accepts that cats are her superior in every way and would never dream of insulting one by trying to own it. However, she has been reading tarot cards since she was a teenager, and while she knows that it is lame to believe in fortune-telling, h
