When Hollywood Star, Morgan Carter, overdoses on narcotics, her mom decides that she won't be able to recover in L.A. and ships her off to live with a friend in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Morgan is devastated that she will have to move to middle America, go to an actual high school for a year, and get a new "under makeover." In order for nobody to recognize her as Morgan Carter she dyes her hair brown, gets fake classes, and decides to call herself Claudia Miller. She finds out that life in middle America with her moms friend, Trudy, isn't all bad after all. Considering, that Trudy is the closest thing to a motherly figure that Morgan has ever had. Between school, Narcotics Anonymous classes, and visits to the YMCA, she meets a few new friends and a possible new crush. As thing start to decline again, she begins to notice more reporters in town. Could someone actually know that she is there? How will she explain to her new friends that she is Morgan Carter if she is caught?
Douglas' "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet" was a very satisfying read. The whole story is told through Morgan Carter/Claudia Miller's journal entries. Morgan's funny and wit narrating makes this book all the worth while. I recommend this book for all teenage girls ages 13 and up. I absolutely can't wait to read the sequel to "True Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet." The sequel is, "More Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet," and picks up right where True Confessions leaves off!
