Sociologist Maya Hope had great plans for her life, now she finds herself in a dead end job with a broken engagement and a broken heart. When her best friend talks her into switching places and a nation wide talent search she reluctantly agrees, never dreaming the rabbit hole she is about to fall down.

Athena Jackson knows she can be a star if she can just catch her break. This talent search is just the thing she needs to give her that jumpstart. The fact that everybody thinks Maya is the real talent means absolutely nothing.

Suddenly thrust into the glitzy sexed up world of rap and hip-hop Maya and Athena struggle with fame and fortune and all the problems that come with it. Maya, the sociologist, finds herself seeing things from a different point of view and Athena finds herself being pushed out of the picture. Will their friendship hold up under the strain?

From the very first page this was a wonderfully unique read. Maya and Athena, and the world they inhabit, jump off the page. I loved the details Ms. Abrams used in describing the making of a star and the publicity spins involved. I enjoyed the multi- dimensional portrayal of gangsta rapper Thug. Ms. Abrams puts a very human face on a world that is frequently seen as only glitz, glamour and violence.
