- I can NEVER read more then 1 book at a time. I've tried it before... just doesn't work
- I like to arrange my books by publisher, and then height.
- If I'm not into a book, I can get distracted really easy by my surroundings, but if I'm really into it, I can read that book for hours without needing putting it down.
- There are a lot of books on my bookshelf that need to be read, because I always opt for library books first.
- When I'm really into a book, I have this movie playing in my head of what's happening in the book, and of what I'm reading. Depending on the story, it can get pretty intense

Livia has lost the weight and gained the attitude in the Hollywood party scene. Her dad's an Oscar-winning producer, and with a hot Beverly Hills boyfriend on her arm as well as her photos all over the pages of Gosizzle.com, Livia looks like she has a perfect life. But looks can be perfectly deceiving....
And there's fresh-faced Casey, who left a job bagging groceries at the Piggly Wiggly to play personal assistant to her best friend...and Devon's rival. She's got the biggest crush on the biggest star of the film -- a hot Brit known for loving and leaving. Will Casey stay true to herself while trying to find a place in his universe?
Stars. They're just like us. But what does that mean for the rest of us? Stay tuned, people.

"The after-party was held at a sprawling, hundred-year-old chateau high in the hills above Cannes. Inside, the ballroom alone felt as big as a football field and had an impressively stocked bar set up along one wall." - page 188

This is one of those books that people are either going to really enjoy and reread a couple of times, or want to burn.I personally really enjoyed it. I don't think there was a single page that made me feel bored about reading this book, so I finished this book pretty fast. I like how this book was written, it was funny, sad, and it made you feel that you were right there with Melinda. Of course, there are mixed reviews about this book, but I enjoyed it. Although, there was probably one part that I didn't like, and that was the ending. I think it concluded everything too fast. I would've wanted the author to explain a little more, like maybe Melinda patching up her relationship with her parents and actually talk to them, and resolve and explain things, and tell them what happened.
When Melinda Sordino's friends discover she called the police to quiet a party, they ostracize her, turning her into an outcast -- even among kids she barely knows. But even worse than the harsh conformity of high-school cliques is a secret that you have to hide.
