Allen and Unwin, 2012. ISBN 9781742379753.
(Age: 15+) It is the dying wish of Laurel Dix that her daughter Molly go to live with the famous father that she has been shielded from for sixteen years. Suddenly Molly is catapulted from rural Indiana to begin a new existence in opulent Hollywood Hills with her rich and manic movie star Dad, Brick Berlin. Molly has a warm reception from Brick but her same age step sister, Brooke, does not take kindly to sharing the spot light with an unsophisticated sibling she didn't know existed until five minutes ago!
Molly is overwhelmed coming to terms with the loss of her mother, the scheming and manipulative Brooke and the relentless paparazzi. What follows is a journey of self discovery, fashion and friendship.
The authors are famous for their celebrity blog GoFug Yourself.com and the book is replete with their famous one liners and caustic observations of the superficial world inhabited by the rich and famous. Not to be taken seriously, this book is a fun and light read and soon to be followed by Messy, a sequel to the dramas of Molly Dix and Brooke Berlin.
