Love. Lies. Acting. Discover the young adult Starlet Series and uncover the life of a talented actress caught in Hollywood's web of lies. Fans of Nicholas Sparks' A Walk to Remember will find a new hero to root for in the dedicated friend, Manuel, and cheer for the struggling Hollywood starlet, Liana Marie.

Teen actress, Liana Marie Michael, knows the Hollywood game and accepts her role in it. As a child of a celebrity she understands that sacrifice is a price of fame. She pleases A-list celebrity Mommy Dearest by acting and her Native American dad by graduating from high school. But life is more than playing roles others have written for her.

Young adult romance, Starlet's Web, looks into the life of a successful teenaged star who rejects drugs and parties but still struggles with contradictions inherent in balancing the culture of being young and sexy with the need to find personal authenticity, love and friendship. Filled with plot twists and an actor's dialogue, Liana Marie's memoir tells a story of trust, betrayal, and understanding that sheds light on the dramatic life of a Hollywood starlet.

5 Stars review and summary by Faridah Nassozi for Readers' Favorite:
Starlet's Web, book one of The Starlet Series by Carla Hanna is a memoir of fictitious Hollywood teenage starlet Liana Marie. Seventeen-year-old Liana is on top of her game and has an Oscar to prove it. However, her success, like several in Hollywood, has a big price tag. It is not easy balancing the life of being a teenager and being a big star. She is trying to live her life the best way she can, hooking up with some cute boys along the way, and fighting off unwanted advances. Then she realizes that she is and always has been in love with her best friend, Manuel, a boy she has known since childhood. Fortunately, Liana has her mum, who has been in the same business for a long time, to guide her; that is, until her mother's best intentions have catastrophic results.

Starlet's Web is a captivating story about the life of Hollywood teenage star and the price she has had to pay. Carla Hanna created a sweet main character who can do no wrong, a girl suffering the consequences of the need to keep up with the Hollywood standards and expectations. She is a kid who has messed up before but now knows better. Carla Hanna's style of writing is very eloquent and evokes vivid images. I could not help but fall in love with Liana as she struggled to stay grounded and fight the temptations that come with the Hollywood life. The book gave me a whole new take on Hollywood stars; their lives are not just about the glitz and glamour.
