Paige doesn’t think she’s particularly special, but after getting the starring role in a massive film adaptation of the bestselling Locked trilogy, the rest of the world would disagree.
Now she’s thrown into the spotlight, and into a world of gossip, rumour and deceit. The only people who know what she’s going through are her two male co-stars, and they can’t stand the sight of each other.
Paige knows it’s a mistake to fall in love on the set of a movie, but days of on-screen romance and intensity start to change her mind. The question is, can she keep what happens behind the scenes a secret when the world is watching her every move?
Truly, Madly, Famously: Book 2 by Rebecca Serle
After being plucked from obscurity, Hollywood’s newest It girl, Paige Townsen, has a blockbuster film to her name and Rainer Devon on her arm.
But being half of the world’s most famous couple comes with a price. No matter where Paige goes, someone is always watching.
Soon she finds herself dodging photographers, hiding her feelings for her other co-star, Jordan Wilder, and weathering tabloid scandals that threaten to tear her and Rainer apart – and end her career as quickly as it began.
As she navigates her new LA life, Paige finds that she doesn’t know who to trust: old friends could be betraying her secrets, and new friends are keeping secrets of their own.
Famous in Lights is the exciting sequel to Rebecca Serle’s Famous in Love.

Young adult novels have been attracting Hollywood’s attention since before the category existed (The Outsiders, anyone?), and in recent years, many of the most successful box office hits and buzziest television series have come directly from the YA shelves. Page to Screen is a series in which authors whose novels have been adapted for the screen share their unique perspectives on the process. Some have little to no involvement, others are writing scripts and sitting in monogrammed chairs on set, but all have experienced seeing their work in a new way.
Today, Rebecca Serle shares the story of how her 2014 novel Famous in Love made it to the small screen—and how she became the co-creator of the TV series. Famous in Love premieres April 18 on Freeform. Check out previous Page to Screen posts here.
