Girl of the Moment

Lizbeth Zindel's book has a fabulous cover, reminiscent of those folders we could buy in middle school that one was supposed to color in with markers. And the premise is great-- girl interns for summer with famous starlet. Similar to Calonita's Secrets of my Hollywood Life or Douglas' Confessions of a Hollywood Starlet.

I was a little disappointed, though. I didn't like the main character. I didn't like most of the characters, except maybe the dog. This is the sort of thing that kills a book for me. (It's why I didn't like Artemis Fowl.) There wasn't anything wrong with the book, but it just wasn't as good as I had hoped. Still, it is a first effort, and I will hope for better things to come!
