KLIATTEva Cordes is desperately trying to make it in the Hollywood modeling scene and with her hot boyfriend Danny. She is a virgin living with two vixen-like roommates who are constantly on the prowl to "hook-up" Eva and Danny. Maybe Eva still isn't ready to be intimate with Danny, and when her high school boyfriend from Massachusetts shows up unexpectedly, she realizes this. Add that struggle to her search for the identity of her father, dead since she was an infant, her relationship with her high-powered, model agency-owning aunt, and her absentee, former jet-setting model mother, and you get one confused young woman. Eva's identity struggle stands out among her friends' fascinations with shopping, staying thin, and attending Hollywood events, and culminates in an unexpected, life-altering surprise. Second in the 310 series, Beth Killian's story plows through young Hollywood like a hot knife through butter. She covers absentee parents alongside manipulative and controlling ones, and struggles with food, weight, money, and personal choices. While reading, I couldn't help thinking I was in the middle of a reality series so popular now on MTV. KLIATT Codes: S--Recommended for senior high school students. 2006, Simon & Schuster, MTV, 226p., $9.99.. Ages 15 to 18.
