In the first book in THE RISE AND FALL OF DANI TRUEHART series, RISING STAR, fifteen-year-old Dani Truehart is living a life that is not quite her own. Driven by her mother's desire for fame and fortune, she has spent her childhood dutifully training for a career as a pop star. On the brink of discovery, doubts begin to creep into Dani's mind as she questions her own desire for fame, and she wonders whether she can trust the motivations of the adults who are driving her forward.

Following a brilliant audition arranged by her vocal/dance coach and former '80s pop icon Martin Fox, Dani is thrown full-force into the music industry. She leaves her friends, family and scheming mother behind to move with Martin, who has become her legal guardian, into the Malibu compound of her new manager, Jenner Redman. Jenner, the former swindling manager of Martin's boy band, leverages what's left of his depleted fortune to launch Dani's career.

Isolated from her life at home and trying to stay apace with her demanding schedule, Dani struggles to keep in touch with those she loves, connect to her withholding mother and find her voice as an artist. With Martin and Jenner at odds over their rocky past and finding herself unprepared to handle the pressures of her future singing career, Dani's debut album and future stardom are at risk of falling apart.

 

Excerpt

This is a scene occurs just after Martin reviews Dani’s contract with her and her parents.

I walk back to the couch, sit down and stare at my parents.  I feel like I’ve aged a lifetime in the past few hours I’ve listening to my mom haggle over every detail of my contract like I’m a piece of meat at the butcher. “Mom, Ive been working for this my whole life. Stop causing problems and let Martin do his job. You cant threaten to stop me now after youve already given guardianship to Martin. Acting like a concerned parent this late in the game isnt going to work. If you really wanted to protect me, you would have never handed me over to Martin.

I shake my head and narrow my eyes at my mom, so furious I can barely speak. “Im sorry that the money I make isnt going directly into your pockets like youd hoped. I promise the first thing I’ll do is to pay you and Dad back for all the lessons youve given me. You deserve some return on your investment. But if the past few hours have shown me anything, its why you really pushed me to do this all these years. Im sorry that you wont be getting the big payday youd hoped for.

My parents just sit there, stunned.

Tears stream down my face as I get up to leave. Im a mess of anger and sadness, and I just want to be alone.
