Editorial Reviews

Review

"McLaughlin and Kraus explore the dark side of fame...and provide an empathetic backstory to the sorts of salacious tales that readers see in the tabloids." —Publishers Weekly

“Pop culture aficionados will see plenty of parallels to Britney Spears’ meteoric rise and downward
spiral in Kelsey’s story, and they’ll enjoy McLaughlin and Kraus’ unflinching look at the price of fame." —Booklist

The only good thing I pulled away from this is that I would never want my child to be a Hollywood megastar, if that's what it's really like to be one.
Jennifer
By the end I was just so disappointed in all of the characters and in their inability to get control of their lives that I really didn't like them very much.

Kelsey didn't even know that Logan was invited, but on one of Kelsey's "sneak out" trips for some alone time Logan follows her and they start to reconnect.

Format: Hardcover
Living your life in the spotlight to everyone on the outside always looks glamorous. To the person in the ring of fire it is anything but a nightmare waiting to happen. Kelsey feels old at the age of 25 since her life career began as a child. Her parents control her, the handlers manipulate her, and the true friends are non-existent.

When Kelsey is reunited with Logan, a long estranged cousin the life that was barely hanging on by a thread snaps. Logan becomes her personal assistant trying to maintain Kelsey's professional life and get her some personal space. Logan thinks the solutions to Kelsey's problem are love, less work would help out, and letting Kelsey live her own life. Yet no one is going to let that happen, as the money train needs to keep moving to fulfill the dreams everyone is living through Kelsey.

As the story unfolds and the dark secrets of the past are revealed the small tears become rips and there is no forgiving life altering mistakes.

The journey that you are taken on by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus is so realistically detailed you get the sense of standing in the room as a witness not a reader. You want to yell at all the people destroying this life in order to make their own better and at times, the tears are running down your cheeks as well as Kelsey's.

As a pop culture obsessor I was very interested to read this book and found myself reacting with a range of emotions as I rode the subway everyday- and caught people reading over my shoulder. A wonderful read and perfect for summer. Loved this book.

Between You & Me is an emotionally haunting look into the lives of two cousins, separated by time and reunited by circumstance. Logan Wade is struggling to keep her head above water in New York after escaping her life in a tiny Oklahoma town. Kelsey Wade is the hottest thing on the popstar scene. When the opportunity arises for Logan to visit her cousin and former best friend who vanished mysteriously out of her life many years prior, she heads to California and "falls" into a new job and a new life, which could be compared to falling down the rabbit hole!

Ever wonder about what the private life of a celebrity might be like? I mean beyond the glitz, the hype, the glamor, the money, but behind the scenes, the reality of living in a fish bowl, your every move controlled by someone who is probably making money off your public persona. Take it a step further, make those "handlers" your over-bearing, over-controlling and quite possibly not quite stable parents. Kelsey is on the verge of breaking and Logan becomes her solid grounding point, as well as part of the damage control team. As Kelsey becomes more unstable, Logan finds she is too caught up in the drama and yet, cannot help from wanting to save her cousin from both herself and the poisonous relationship she has with her parents. But can she, or will she, too get lost in the abyss Kelsey is spiraling down into? Who's to blame? How far back does the damage go? What skeletons from the past lie in wait, ready to pounce? How will they affect the relationship between Logan and Kelsey?

Authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have created a blistering tale of both the dynamics of a dysfunctional family and the pressures of living life in a fishbowl, the lone guppy among the sharks.

Format: Hardcover
Logan Wade did not expect the call that changed her life. Logan's famous cousin, Kelsey, needs a personal assistant. The two had been best friends as children, but they were torn apart by events outside their control. Accepting the job means Logan and Kelsey can rebuild their relationship, but constant problems plague them as Logan tries to help Kelsey succeed and live a happy life.
McLaughlin and Kraus draw their readers into Logan's world. By page three, a restless determination overtook me. I could feel Logan's dissatisfaction with her life, her desire for change. Logan finds her change in Kelsey, her famous cousin that she has not seen in years. Kelsey needs change, as well. Smothered by her parents and always overworked, Kelsey's life is not glamorous. The two girls respond to each other and rekindle their friendship, but problems from their childhood threaten their abilities to move forward and live.
McLaughlin and Kraus are creative and fashioned interesting characters. Young adult adult readers would enjoy this book. I give this book four out of five stars. I do not love this novel, but definitely think it is worth a read. Between You and Me has the flavor of a reality TV show, but with better characters and a better storyline.

Logan Wade is the older than her famous cousin, Kelsey Wade, by two years. They used to childhood best friends, but then something happened that caused a rift between their families when Logan was in her teens, and it's been years since they've seen each other, which is difficult for Logan to understand because she can't remember what happened to her Logan has left her the bad memories of her childhood in Oklahoma behind, and is now working in NYC. On the day of her birthday, she gets a phone call from Kelsey's assistant and doesn't think anything of it. What was supposed to be her day ends with her "boyfriend" putting her in a cab to her home, alone. Logan is fed up with the way her life is going, and when she returns the call to Kelsey's assistant, she's surprised at the offer to fly out to California and see Kelsey, at her own request. Once she gets there, she finds things have changed and is astonished to find how things really are and surprises herself when she agrees to become Kelsey's assistant. With everyone wanting a piece of Kelsey, will Logan be able to be protect her and be there for her, while keeping herself safe too?

This book isn't very long, coming in under 275 pages, but what it lacks in length it completely makes up for with the story itself. The book is packed with action, drama, and a little comedy. Seeing how hectic and out of control a celebrity's life can be, even on paper, makes me glad my childhood day dreams of becoming a susper star of some sort to impress a crush never came true. Always having to be on your guard and weary of people must be exhausting! Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus have done a phenomenal job with this book. It hooks you from page one and keeps you there until the book is finished.
