Seventeen-year-old Rachel Kim confronts the dark underbelly of the K-pop world as she strives to become a K-pop star.
A Junior Library Guild selection.
"What would you give for a chance to live your dreams? For seventeen-year-old Korean American Rachel Kim, the answer is almost everything. Six years ago, she was recruited by DB Entertainment--one of Seoul's largest K-pop labels, known for churning out some of the world's most popular stars. The rules are simple: Train 24-7. Be perfect. Don't date. Easy, right? Not so much. As the dark scandals of an industry bent on controlling and commodifying beautiful girls begin to bubble up, Rachel wonders if she's strong enough to be a winner, or if she'll end up crushed...especially when she begins to develop feelings for K-pop star and DB golden boy Jason Lee. It's not just that he's charming, sexy, and ridiculously talented. He's also the first person who really understands how badly she wants her star to rise. In the hyper-color world of K-pop, the stakes are high, but the cost of success--and love--might be even higher. It's time for the world to see: this is what it takes to SHINE."--adapted from jacket.
