People stopped talking and stared, brows furrowed, like they were at the zoo and Molly was an exotic animal theyd never heard of before. Behold, Los Angelenos, the worlds only Skittish Hoosier in captivity. After her mothers death, Molly finds herself the main exhibit for Los Angeles prying eyes. Her new school mates gape and make fun of her, and her new sister is the next in line for the throne of the far-away island of Royal Pain in the Arse. Brooke Berlin is self-centered, vindictive, and the complete opposite of the humanitarian image painted by her Wikipedia article entry. In fact, Brooke goes out of her way to make Mollys life in Los Angeles unpleasant. But that doesnt stop Molly, who is head-strong and determined to honor her mothers dying wish: get to know your father.


     Molly knew that moving to L.A. would not be an easy move, but she did not count on inheriting an arch-nemesis along with an uber rich celebrity family. If she thought her dad, Brick Berlin, would be of any help easing the transition from Indiana to California, she was mistaken. His busy acting career had him in a million places, none of which were at home. Left aloneand forced to share a roomMolly and Brooke have to survive junior year of high school& together.


     When I first started reading this book, I wasnt sure what to think. My original biased pegged it as a celebrity parody without much of a plot. Because of that, I must admit it took me a while to get into the book. Oh, but into it I did go. When the plot began to form, I quickly became engrossed in the story. The conflict between Brooke and Molly was dynamic and worthy of prime time reality television. 


     The authors did a fantastic job of mimicking California slang and the stereotypes of celebrities and their children. Of course, it helps that the authors are both professional fashion writers/bloggers and know their subject very well. The humorous insights and character nuances actually had me laughing out loud at various times during the novel. The epilogue is especially enjoyable because it paints a hilarious image of father-daughter bonding gone awry.


     I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to enjoy a good beach read. It has a good, believable plot, well developed characters, and plenty of sarcastic humor to keep you turning the pages.
