She dishes celebrity dirt no one else dares. But now, Maya Morgan is about to get a taste of her own medicine. . .

Gossip show "Rumor Central" has gone beyond Miami to national syndication. So now's the time for Maya Morgan to really make her brand blow up. But her brand starts to blow up in her face when a super-fan takes over her online life, trashing her reputation, and putting her gossip future at risk. Now Maya will need every down-and-dirty move--and a little help from her frenemies--to manage this disaster and save everything she's dished so hard to get. . .

"Scandal and mouth dropping entertainment!" --Ni-Ni Simone

"Sit up and pay attention--Maya Morgan will knock your socks off." --Earl Sewell, author of The Keysha Diaries

You Don't Know Me Like That : Rumor Central by Reshonda Tate Billingsley (Saturday, February 8, 2014)
Reviewer: Melanie Adkins

Maya is known in Miami for her gossip and celebrity news. She's getting all the dirt on celebs AND hanging out with them. Still, homework and teen problems were part of life. Maya has the world on a string and she's enjoying life. When a new assistant and a new social media person join her staff, she figures it will just make things easier. Maya has no idea the problems she's gonna have now.

Fast paced, current and interesting, this book will be one the teen in your life will enjoy. I found the plot amazing. Never did I dream what the outcome would be. Ms Billingsley is a talented author and I feel completely at ease suggesting you get any one of her books. I'm a fan!

I didn't find any issues.

I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I felt like I was part of the IN crowd reading this.
