The Starlet Series brings the teen reader inside a realistic life of a teenaged starlet. Ms. Hanna does not shy away from how all of the influences surrounding the teen help shape identity formation: God, greed, sexual over-saturation, perceptions of beauty, cultural contradictions, privilege and race.
