Claim to Fame by Margaret Haddix

Haddix, Margaret Petersen Claim to Fame, 256 p. Simon and Schuster, 2009. Content: G. Lindsay Scott was 11, she walked away from a lucrative TV show career. Five years later, she has been in hiding and is one day kidnapped by two well-intentioned, but very stupid fans, who believe the tabloid reports that her father is keeping her prisoner. But Lindsay’s father is dead and her secret is much more than a young starlet wanting life away from the limelight. All of her secrets are rushing to be exposed and those secrets are so much more than Lindsay ever could have guessed. With talk about transcendentalism, the roots of this book are less accessible than Haddix’s others, but the action is still interesting. The intended audience is older than her Missing Children or Hidden Children series. MS – OPTIONAL. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
