No celebrity secret is safe from Maya Morgan. But a ratings-making road trip is putting her future on the firing line . . .

Maya has no problem turning up the heat when she takes her show on the road for Spring Break in Cancun. On and off camera, the drama with her crew is chart-topping scandalous. And when a reckless bet Maya makes with Evian turns into a full-blown kidnapping crisis, Maya turns disaster into a major ratings win. But she'd better watch her back, because Evian is taking advantage of her moment in the spotlight and she just may push Maya out of the way for good. Maya will have to work all her skills and face some hard truths to save her credibility--and make sure the best gossip diva wins . . .

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

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

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

1. Was Maya wrong not to tell her friends from jump that she would be filming in Cancun? What should she have done differently?

2. Cancun was all about having a good time, but do you think the group went too far when they began playing truth or dare?

3. Why do you think Bryce is always there when Maya needs him? Should she stop being so bitter toward him?

4. Should Maya have insisted that they call the police from the beginning? Why do you think she didn’t?

5. What are some of the clues Maya should’ve seen that told her something wasn’t right about the whole kidnapping caper?

6. Before giving Evian her own show, Tamara approached Maya about having her appear on Rumor Central. Do you think Maya should’ve just let Evian be a correspondent?

7. Maya was extremely upset about Sheridan appearing on Evian’s show. Do you think she was justified in her anger? Should Sheridan have appeared on the show?

8. Maya became consumed with Evian to the point that her own show was suffering. Why do you think she was so wrapped up in Evian?

9. Maya always runs to Alvin to help her out of binds. Alvin never complains. Do you think Maya is denying her true feelings for Alvin? Should he wait for her, or move on?

10. Ultimately, Maya didn’t play the tape and put Evian on complete blast. Why do you think she had a change of heart?
