KIRKUS REVIEW

The continuing travails of 17-year-old Morgan, genuine movie star, as she tries to live like a normal teenager in the Midwest, come across with delightful zing, yet address serious subjects. Morgan deals with first love, old enemies, best friends, new enemies, weight gain, hairstyles, fashion and her selfish mother, all the while fending off the horrid paparazzi and tabloid press. With all of that, she’s inches away from her first-year sobriety token when she’s thrown together with the celebrity who raped her years ago. Written in diary-style, this sequel picks up right where the opener left off, with little explanation of what has gone before. As such, it barely stands on its own, but for fans who want more, it delivers. Douglas manages the lightest of styles while delving into deep issues for adolescents. Fun, breezy entertainment with thoughtful undertones. (Fiction. YA)
