Jessica has transferred to a new school in Beverly Hills and she is getting a lot of attention. Not just because her sister, Eva, is a famous actress, but also because ever since Jessica arrived, everyone’s pictures have been disappearing from their lockers. So, everyone thinks that Jessica is the picture thief. She is on a mission with her friends Ally and Rebecca to find out who the real picture thief is. And the spotlight is on one person, Sister Spacey - they just know she’s the thief.

Other than school, Jessica is helping Eva with her acting. Also, the more and more time she spends with her crush, Jeremy, the closer they get. Jessica’s life in Beverly Hills has gone from bad to good. Now, she and Eva spend a lot more quality time together, the picture stealing has stopped, and she and Jeremy have something in common - they both like each other.

The scene I liked the most is when Jessica accidentally invites two guys to a party but doesn’t know what to do. Also, I enjoyed the part where Jessica was dealing with the picture thief situation. Both of these scenes kept me reading and entertained.

I would recommend “Star Quality” from the “The Hollywood Sisters” series to someone who likes mysteries and teen problems and situations. This book mainly tells a life in Hollywood and all that Jessica goes through.

My rating on this book would be 3 stars because I really liked it and I think anyone who gave this book a chance would feel the same way. “The Hollywood Sisters” is a book that will keep you reading and never want to stop. The author does a great job of entertaining the reader and even providing you with a little advice. So, next time you’re at the library or book store, remember, give it a chance. You’re going to really like it.
