About the Author

JACKIE COLLINS is the author of twenty-nine New York Times bestselling novels. More than 500 million of her books have sold in more than forty countries. From Hollywood Wives to Lady Boss, from Chances to Poor Little Bitch Girl, Jackie Collins has chronicled the lives of the rich and famous with "devastating accuracy" (Los Angeles Times). She lives in Beverly Hills.

There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins (1937-2015) can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of power brokers—Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out. Jackie Collins has been called a “raunchy moralist” by the late director Louis Malle and “Hollywood’s own Marcel Proust” by Vanity Fair magazine. With over 400 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with some twenty-seven New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world’s top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivalled insider’s knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous. “I write about real people in disguise,” she says. “If anything, my characters are toned down -- the truth is much more bizarre.” Ms. Collins books include Poor Little Bitch Girl, A Santangelo Story and Drop Dead Beautiful. Jackie Collins was awarded an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 2013. She lived in Los Angeles, CA.

This was a boring read and not up to the usual Jackie Collins story. Kept waiting for more that never came.

The teenage years of Lucky Santangelo are the years that formed her into the powerful woman she has become.   This is the story of those years.   The tales of a fifteen year old who is trying to find her own way and get out from under her father, Gino, control.  It is the story of a determined girls journeys through private elite schools, a villa in South France, and her dreams of being in Las Vegas.  My Review: Lucky Santangelo is one of my all time favorite characters in any book, especially in Jackie Collin books.   I enjoyed learning of her past.   Many of the stories were repeated from other Lucky books but in this book it went into more detail.   Since this was the story of a fifteen year old, I expected a lot of drama.  I was not disappointed.   Lucky’s life is full of drama, although not all of it was brought on by her.   I believe that anywhere and anyone Lucky and Gino go or come in contact would contain drama.  This was not my favorite Jackie Collins book, but it was a good read.  I always like to know the history of a character, which is all this book was…history.  It also offered much insight into why Lucky is who is she and how she got there.   I believe now that I have read this one I am going to go back and read the past books, in order, and enjoy Lucky’s whole life.

Is there a sequel? So much was untold. This book left me unsatisfied. :-(

This is a very short book from Jackie Collins. Read it in one day. Not her best in my opinion, but still good. It was interesting to see how Lucky started out and all the trials and tribulations that she endured. It even brought Olympia into the picture and of course Gino the Ram. Just wished it was longer and maybe got into the future of Lucky as she grows and matures into the woman that she has become in the later books. But, all in all, the book is a good read.

I am really disappointed in this book. I read it in 2 hours and paid $12.99 for it. No up to Jackie's usual standards and provided no new stories about Lucky. All of this was covered in Chances. Total disappointment.

Easy read, like all of Jackie Collins' Santangelo series. Takes readers back to the original, "Chances"...

Beautifully written story about my favorite character Lucky Santangelo and her adventures as a teenager. I couldn't stop reading it as with all the other Jackie Collins books.

This is smart-mouthed Lucky Santangelo's beginning. And, it's WILD! I LOVED this book. Lucky had to overcome a hard childhood to become the wise-cracking woman she grew up to be. And it wasn't easy for Jackie Collins to write what her favorite character had gone through while Lucky was growing up.
