"Zachary Sergi has reinvented interactive stories with his genre-bending, wildly entertaining Choices novels—and this one is a fabulous whirlwind with high-stakes glitz, glam, and so much juicy drama. A must-read!"—Jessica Goodman, New York Times bestselling author of They Wish They Were Us, They'll Never Catch Us, and The Counselors
“Zachary Sergi’s Choices novels are always a unique joy, and So You Wanna Be a Pop Star? is no exception! Readers will be thrust into the spotlight as they help two wannabe pop stars navigate a thrilling, treacherous industry. You won’t find another book out there like this!”—Adam Sass, award-winning author of Surrender Your Sons and The 99 Boyfriends of Micah Summers
"Like any good pop song, So You Wanna be a Pop Star is equal parts fun and insightful. By allowing readers to choose how the novel progresses, Zachary Sergi has written an innovative and captivating story of pop superstardom that rewards multiple read-throughs."—Erik J. Brown, author of All That's Left in the World
"So You Wanna Be A Pop Star? is pitch-perfect. Determining Everly and Vinny's paths into the spotlight was a thrill, and celebrating Jeweltones' success—or cringing as they fail—had me riding musical highs and lows until the very end. I want an encore!"
—Robbie Couch, author of The Sky Blues
"A joyous celebration of music, friendship, and finding your voice. I'm ready to join up with Jeweltones."—Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina
“Some of the topics realistically presented here are body positivity; health issues; the pressures of male beauty standards; sexism, racism, and homophobia in the fickle music industry; and how social media branding is both essential and severely toxic. Like Sergi’s previous work, Major Detours (2021), the choose-your-own-adventure format allows readers to flavor their experiences as they wish, developing the characters’ relationships and musical tastes and even creating a drag persona. An engaging, interactive story that musically minded readers will especially enjoy!”—Kirkus Reviews
