Book Review: Izzy's Pop Star Plan by Alex Marestaing

Izzy’s Pop Star Plan would be a great book for a girl in her early teens.  Izzy is a teenager with a plan to become a pop star in the Pop Star Challenge (kind of like American Idol.)

The book is written more as a daily blog written by Izzy Baxter about what she is going through in audtions and actually becoming a contestant on the Pop Star Challenge. The blog goes through 90 days of Izzy’s life.  Each entry has a mood meter (I love it!  Reminds me of my tween years,) the actual blog post, “My Heart,” and “Good Night, God.” 

I like the fact that the book was very real.  Izzy has been dealt with a tough deck of cards, losing her mother, but being very close to her father and her brother, Anders.  The Baxter’s live in an apartment in California where Izzy is home-schooled due to audition schedules.  Her best friend, Maggie, had been a great support system for her, as well as her Pastor and a woman who Izzy knows from the apartment building.

Izzy is fortunate enough to travel the world with her Manager (her brother, Anders,) and her father and takes the reader through her travels, trials and tribulations, meeting lifelong friends and making a difference the whole way through.  This book was very encouraging and a pleasure to read. 

I received this book free from BookSneeze.com as part of their Blogger Review program.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
