Overview

After her brilliant run on Broadway and surviving the harsh concrete jungle of New York City, seventeen-year-old Hollywood "It Girl" Kaitlin Burke is back in L.A. starting a sitcom with her former-nemesis-now-BFF, Sky. The show is a huge success! In fact, maybe a little too huge, Kaitlin realizes, after a bad run-in with aggressive paparazzi puts her boyfriend Austin in danger. She wishes, once again, that she could have a normal life.

But what Kaitlin doesn't realize is that her Hollywood life has had a positive influence on just about everyone she loves, and it takes a minor car accident and a nasty concussion to truly grasp how lucky she is. In Jen Calonita's sixth and final Secrets of My Hollywood Life novel, Kaitlin learns at last about the price of fame, the unending upside of friendship, and that there really is no place like home-even if it's Tinseltown.

Kaitlin's just starting over in Hollywood with a new TV show - Small Fries. It has the potential to become HUGE. With Sky as her co-star again, things are looking better than ever. Then her mom starts overbooking her schedule. With Broadway under her belt and another hit TV series, Kaitlin has her pick of movies during the show production's hiatus. She has the choice between working with Spielberg or Eastwood. Her mom wants her to choose both, and she won't take no for an answer. Her mom also wants her promoting her TV show, leaving no time for dates with her boyfriend or time with her friends. Kaitlin doesn't want to disappoint her mother, but neither does she want to burn out. After huge fights with both her mom and her friends, Kaitlin realizes she needs to make some serious choices about her future. I'm so sad to say goodbye to Kaitlin and her Hollywood life. I love Kaitlin, because while she's the ultimate "It Girl," she longs to be normal. She values loyalty, friendship, and honesty. THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME is broken into three parts: the present, an alternate universe, and the present again. The alternate world answers the questions Kaitlin has been asking throughout the series. What would happen if she could live a normal life away from all the pressures? Would she be different? What would she do? This was a different approach to ending the series, but it really works. Kaitlin's been struggling with these issues ever since going incognito to high school during the first book. I do love how the SECRETS OF MY HOLLYWOOD LIFE series ended - it's definitely been addicting and fun to read!

I love love this series so much. I have every single book in the series and i have more books by jen calonita like sleepaway girls. I am also looking forward to getting reality check and the new one, belles, that she is working on. I think calonita is such a talented author and that she can do alot with her writing. However, with this book i couldnt help but feel disappointed. I didnt want to feel this way but i just did. I guess i wanted more of a huge hollywood kind of ending but..i would definitely reccommend this book to any teen girl who feels overwhelmed..which teen doesnt? And for anyone who wants a cute, quick, read on being a star.
