16-year-old Molly Dix loves her ordinary life in suburban Indiana, so when her single mother passes away, she is shocked to discover that her biological father is Brick Berlin, world famous movie star and red carpet regular.
Equally intrigued and terrified by her Hollywood lineage, Molly moves to Southern California and plunges head-first into the deep end of Beverly Hills celebrity life. Just as Molly thinks her new life and family couldn't get any stranger, she meets Brooke Berlin, her gorgeous and spoiled half-sister whom welcomes Molly to la-la land with a healthy dose of passive-aggressive "sisterly love."
Set against the backdrop of a sparkling and fashion-filled Los Angeles, this deliciously dysfunctional family soap opera will satisfy every reader looking for their next lifestyles-of-the-rich-and-famous beach read.Mean Girls meets pop culture. That’s what this book is. I wasn’t really sure at first if I would enjoy this book, because it sounded a little too superficial to me at first. Yet, after a couple of pages, I really ended addicted to the story, because it was so light and funny. It was really a great summer read for that. War between two half-sisters, in the Hollywood world. It made me laugh. You can’t really start this book thinking it has serious issues. It is mostly making fun of Hollywood culture in a way.
Brick is the best example of that. He probably think he is the best contestant for “Dad of the Year’, yet he is never there for his daughter(s). He falls for every new trend, and believes everything the latest big “specialist” will tell him. He just sounded so naïve. Brooke was the mean girl in the story, but I did end up liking her when I learn more about her. She first came across as superficial girl, but there is more to her. I really liked Molly. She was nice, fun and a little more down to earth. She seemed so lost in this world. She’s trying to do the right thing, without looking like she’s just too weak to face her sister.
This book is simply perfect if you’re looking for something light, fun and entertaining. A really great read for the summer!
