The teenage daughters of rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman were in New Orleans with their dads this weekend, but it was the girls who greeted fans and signed autographs at the Essence Festival.
Reginae Carter is the 14-year-old daughter of Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter. She collaborated with 16-year-old Bria Williams, daughter of Bryan “Birdman” Williams on a teen novel, Paparazzi Princesses. It’s based on stories and characters inspired by their own life experiences.
“It’s about the ups and downs of having celebrity parents,” Reginae Carter said. “It’s about how we go through everyday drama like everybody else.”
They hope their book will inspire more teens to read.
“Every book is not everybody’s choice,” Carter said, adding that she likes the idea of book clubs, where teens can get together and read the same thing. “We hope they’ll read ours.”

His seventh YA novel, Grasshopper Jungle (out Feb. 20, 2014), goes far into the absurd but promises to run as deep as this other novels. Seriously, check out the official plot description: READ FULL STORY
2013 is about half over, and the books editors at Amazon have already chosen their top 10 books of the year so far, just in time for you to make a few additions to your beach bag. Unlike the film industry, there isn’t a clearly defined “prestige” season for book releases, so it wouldn’t be surprising if a lot of these titles popped up on year-end best lists as well — although there are still many highly touted titles yet to come in the fall, including ones from Donna Tartt, Amy Tan, Jhumpa Lahiri, and Marisha Pessl. Check out Amazon’s picks and snippets from EW reviews below: READ FULL STORY
