The Fame Game – Do celebrity authors deserve the buzz?

So, I just finished The Fame Game by Lauren Conrad. And I certainly try to be pretty positive on this site, featuring those books which I would recommend to fellow teen fiction enthusiasts. Here’s the thing. It’s not a bad book. In fact, it delivers exactly the story it promises. The thing is, I’ve read many beautiful, intriguing stories by talented authors, and I can’t help but wonder the following: does Miss Conrad deserve a corner of the market when so many great authors remain unpublished? People who have devoted their lives to developing their writing talent and perfecting their story–is it fair to get pushed aside for a book that sells because of a powerhouse name?

Well, the publishing industry is a business, Miss Conrad is certainly talented in many areas, and life isn’t always fair. And that’s all I have to say.

If you want a quick read, give it a go and let me know…
