From School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-The Fowlers of YouTube's AllThatGlitters21 and juicystar07 have written their first novel, a seemingly fictionalized account of their own lives. Sisters Sophia and Ava London, young and beautiful, are Internet sensations due to their video blog makeup tips. In short order they meet a movie star, win the prestigious Best Webstars of the Year, and are offered their own cosmetic line, London Calling. Sophia, the serious older sister, is recovering from a bad break-up and goes on a hiatus from dating, aka a "boytox," until she finds two very different men attractive: Hunter, who appears too good to be true, and Giovanni, an artist/bartender. Ava, the impulsive younger sister, is torn between Liam Carlson, a movie star, and Dalton, a mysterious animal-shelter volunteer. In the sisters' alternating narratives, readers see the romantic entanglements and sibling misunderstandings that threaten their relationship and new business. Ultimately all is resolved, and the girls seem headed for a happy ending until they are arrested at a benefit they are throwing. The mystery involving their arrest is forced and poorly set up and the epilogue is even more baffling. The book makes a serious attempt to explore relationships between sisters, but the emphasis on clothes, parties, and makeup detracts from this effort and gives the book an air of frivolity.-Kefira Phillipe, Nichols Middle School, Evanston, ILα(c) Copyright 2011.

“Fast, snappy and filled with great insider knowledge of the beauty industry.” ―RT BOOKREVIEWS
“Fans of Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy are going to sweep up Beneath the Glitter, the debut novel from YouTube style sensations Elle and Balir Fowler.” ―Justine Magazine
“An end-of-summer fun read . . . quick, lighthearted [that] makes us feel as if we're actually living a glitzy, glamorous life. Oh, how we wish!” ―Miss Literati
“A GREAT book and even better beach read. It's fun, light hearted and a book that everyone should add to their collection. I can't wait for the next one!” ―loveforlacquer.com
“This book was delicious and addicting and wonderful. The characters were well-developed, the plot line was delish, and the entire idea was fantastic. It reminded me of L.A. Candy in a way, but there was better drama…I highly recommend this book. It's absolute awesomeness.” ―Willa's Ramblings
“An enthralling, lighthearted, irresistible, and romantic story…fans of contemporary, chick lits and quick paced funny reads will certainly find delight in this one.” ―Itching for Books
“An enjoyable read that is perfect for the beach…about two sisters who'd do anything for each other but have to realize that life might not be as easy as they want it to be. If you're looking for an easy and fast read, be sure to consider reading this one - especially if you're someone who, like me, is easily pulled in by a world of beauty, glamour and gossip.” ―Fictional Distraction
“If you are a fan of the Fowler sisters I would definitely suggest picking up this book because it is a great insight into their world!” ―Charming Chelsey's
“Fun characters combined with the always interesting plot line - which included mingling with movie stars, rescuing animals, 46 courses of champagne tasting, and even sabotage - made for a quick, fun read that I finished in under a day.” ―The Mortal's Library
“Ava and Sophie seemed really down to earth and were just trying to make it big in a city notorious eating up people and spitting them out. I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow through the tribulation that comes with success.” ―Charlotte's Web of Books--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

THIS STORY DOESN'T END ON THIS BOOK. The book starts with the two sisters being arrested and then goes back in time to tell how did they get into that situation. And that's almost exactly where the book ends. That is, you've read the whole thing still don't know what happens after that. You need to read it in the next book. Seems like a money hungry strategy to me, forcing you to buy the next book, so I have no love for these authors.
