Synopsis: Mallory is a teenage girl living in L.A. and her mother is the oftnominated, never-winning star of a daytime soap; she is, in fact, the ultimate drama queen. After yet another blow-out about her mother's awful plotlines and overacting, Mallory starts blogging about how she wishes soap operas were more like real kids' lives instead of the ridiculous storylines the shows usually feature. When her mother's agent reads the blog, Mallory ends up in her own whirlwind drama, both at school and on the lot, as she works to protect the integrity of her original idea, cope with her mother's jealousy, and get her best friend a lead role on the show. Factor in her boyfriend with the girlfriend, the cute but bad brother to said-best-friend, and the super-cute male lead on her show, and Mallory's got plenty of her own melodrama to cope with.
I think I have a obsession with books that tell the truth about the world of celebrities. Once again a story that shows us that all that glitters is not gold. And what we see as fabulous fame is just a new stick up your.... I wont finish that. But its true. More and more of the books I read like this really peel back what we see as the fabulous prefect life of fame and show us what is really there. Pain, misery, stress. No one wants that. Yet people throw themselves at it. This book was another one who did a great job of showing us this. I cant wait to read the sequel All That Glitters.
