Praise for the Beautiful Idols series



"Like its predecessor, this is tailor-made for readers interested in getting lost in the glitzy, sexy world of Hollywood stars. Best-selling Noël won’t stay on shelves long, and another cliff-hanger ending means that those hanging on to find out the truth about Madison’s disappearance should fasten their seatbelts: this ride isn’t remotely over."

"This second installment picks up where the first volume left off and reveals the vulnerabilities of the characters either loved or loathed in Unrivaled. Whereas the previous entry reveled in the excess and dog-eat-dog world inhabited by the teens, in Blacklist the setting is the background for a good old-fashioned whodunit. The scandalous, gossipy tone of the first book is underscored as the teens grapple with the underbelly of fame, notoriety, and the realization that nothing is as it seems. Like its predecessor, this is a suspenseful page-turner that is teasingly addictive; it works as a stand-alone entry in the series and as a worthwhile sequel."
   —Tamela Chambers, Chicago Public Schools



"Noël cycles among the stories of Layla, Tommy, Aster, and Madison in a gossipy, third-person narrative that makes for addictive reading ..."
   —Publishers Weekly

" ...readers looking for a breezy, glamorous look into LA's underworld, this is the page turner for the job."

"Noël aims for the celebrity-hungry chick-lit crowd and scores...Chick-lit gold."

"What do you get when you mix highly attractive teenagers, dreams of fame, secrets, lies, and a nightclub promotions contest? You get a page-turner reminiscent of reality TV: an addictive combination of Survivor and The Apprentice, set in L.A....This is a suspenseful, scandalous, and consumable novel that is sure to gain instant fandom and leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment. VERDICT: A must-have selection for older teens."
   —School Library Journal

"Not all of LA's beautiful people lead beautiful lives. Alyson Noël shows us with the details of an observant insider what they're really up to, late into the night. Like a good celebrity, Unrivaled is mysterious and compelling and so gorgeous you won't be able to look away."
   —Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the Gossip Girl series

"This glitzy, suspenseful, shamelessly addictive read offers an all access pass to the glimmering world of Hollywood celebrity, where fame is a game, dark secrets are currency, and love doesn't come without a high price."
