Picking up this book at my local Barnes&Noble, I was not quite sure what to expect. The cover looked, well, childish, and the plot seemed slightly overused. I bought it anyway. AND GOOD THING I DID! I could not put down this book for 3 days - and finished it in those three days. I reccomend (pardon my spelling) to anybody who wants an uplifting kind-of story once in a while. I LOVED it. In face, the plot becomes juicier and juicier on each turn of the page!

Emotional page turner
Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout did an amazing job of capturing the moodiness of a fifteen-year-old girl. The fact that the parents are divorced makes the story more relatable to girls. Vivien Leigh's mother is an actress who only thinks of herself. Vivien is forced to move to Ireland for the summer and live with her mom. Vivian only thinks of her mom's money. When she finds out she won't be able to shop as freely as she'd like, she goes along for the ride. It turns out her mother's movie set has something she could learn to love. His name is Sean and he's the lead actor in the movie. Sean is also twenty years old. When Vivien confuses mentoring with flirting, and secret meetings with affairs, she runs away,only to find out she was ill informed. Like many teenagers she was to fast in her actions and not her thoughts. Yvonne and Sandy have created an emotional page-turner that is a must read for not only teenagers but for all females.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Introducing a must read novel !!!!!!!!
This book was amazing it had everything all readers would enjoy, it had love,fantasy, reality and much much more. The fantasy is something that everyone dreams will happen to them, the love is all around the movie set seeing who gets dumped and who is dating. Reality is when it all comes to a close, at the end of Leigh's summer it's sad to watch it end even when you know there will be a sequel. Thinking of waiting for more than a year for the sequel (Now Starring Vivien Leigh Reid: Diva in Training) is as depressing as thinking there isn't a sequel at all, but Winter 2006 will roll around, a little to slowly for my taste, and then I will be able to continue reading this comedic tale, and the adventure will once again begin. I loved this book everyone has to read Introducing Vivien Leigh Reid: Daughter of a Diva.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
