It was a fun read, but I could swear this was edited out of order. The first chapter is fine- but then the next chapters are all about what happened months before without any warning. (A simple "Six Months Before"... could have helped the confusion.) The book jumps all around with no clear timeline. The Hollywood stuff was fun- but gets old after a while. It was like the authors were trying too hard to be clever. I stopped caring. .

Review by Stephanie: I expected to enjoy Beneath a Starlet Sky a lot more than I actually did, since it looked so glamorous and pretty and all that. Even the blurb (though pretty much summarizing the entire book) wasn't that bad. And it wasn't a bad read at all. But I couldn't find myself to quite love it either. The book is the ideal example of style over substance; while the book contains juicy and brutally accurate details of Hollywood society (not that I would know, since I'm not an LA insider), the plot falls flat and leaves the reader (in this case, unfortunately, me) restless. Written by Amanda Goldberg (a movie producer) and Ruthanna Khalighi Hopper (a famous actor's daughter), it is evident the content that goes into the novel are real-life points of view. However, not all (or many) movie producers are fit to write novels; the cinema industry and book industry are completely different realms. Goldberg may have a successful film career, thanks to her bright imagination and vision statement, but her words penned down on paper fall undeniably flat. And as for Hopper, the only achievement she's made outside of being a celebrity herself, is co-write a previous book with Goldberg titled Celebutantes, which, I have not read, but can imagine is about. Lola's journey as a rising A-lister in the captivating but deceptive Hollywood world is interesting, at best. Not even entertaining, because half the book describes in great detail, an outfit, or an interior design, or a power couple relationship. Maybe good for tabloids, but not a novel. I myself, am a fan of People and Cosmopolitan, which is why I found a lot of the celebrity observations interesting. But with each sentence filling up about a sixth of the page, the book itself was in no way, fun to read, or amusing, or really anything a good book should be. If Beneath a Starlet Sky had been published as a magazine, I would have gobbled it up. But sadly, I just couldn't put admiration into it, due to weak writing, lack of intrigue, dull characters, or maybe a combination of the three.

Lola's life is in the fast lane; unfortunately she isn't sure if she can keep up. Daughter of an uber-famous Hollywood director and a reality TV wife, Lola's life is always splashed for all to see. Plus she is trying to keep her fashion PR firm afloat while a nemesis magazine editor is determined to shut her down. How will she even find the time to maintain her relationship to her dream guy? Beneath a Starlet Sky is fast paced and entertaining. It's all that you love about chick lit with a healthy dose of tabloid gossip. Even though the heroine is far removed from the average girl's life, I found her endearing and her downfall heartbreaking. I admit, halfway through this book, I was hooked and needed to know the ending of her story. Be prepared for a messy, wild ride! However I felt this book was over-riddled with name-dropping and celebrity comparisons. Some were real; others were made up. Even the most gossip loving celebrity and fashion hounds might not catch all the references made in this book. I found this distracting from the story at hand. I was also slightly disappointed that the token gay best friend was the typical flamboyant, self-indulgent artist sort. Can there be no 'normal' gay or lesbian characters in books or film besides the stereotype comic relief? This is not to say I didn't find him and his quirks funny, because they were. Maybe I am over thinking this. I also do not live in NYC or LA, where this book was set in. Conclusion: Beneath a Starlet Sky was fun, fast, and indulgent. A glimpse into what life in a Hollywood family might really be like, this book was shocking and touching. I recommend reading it for yourself.
