They didn't ask for fame. They were born with it. In the second Daughters vel, The Daughters Break the Rules, Carina confronted her complicated relationship with money and her powerful father. Now readers will shift to Hudson's perspective. . . Daughter of pop star phem Holla Jones, Hudson Jones is struggling to find her own place in the family business, aka: show business. Like her mother, Hudson is a gifted singer and songwriter; unlike her mother, she has a serious case of stage fright. Hudson's own debut album is about to drop and she's beyond nervous--how can she explain to Holla that she'd rather play low-key songs with a regular teen band than perform power-pop ballads in front of a packed club? Described as down-to-earth overachievers who crave rmalcy by Publishers Weekly, Lizzie, Carina and Hudson speak directly to tween and teen girls. In Hudson's story, readers will discover an exciting backstage pass to the entertainment industry and a relatable heroine figuring out how to pursue her dream of performing.
