Publisher Comments:

MALLORY IS A teenage girl living in L.A. and her mother is the oftnominated, never-winning star of a daytime soap; she is, in fact, the ultimate drama queen. After yet another blow-out about her mothers awful plotlines and overacting, Mallory starts blogging about how she wishes soap operas were more like real kids lives instead of the ridiculous storylines the shows usually feature.

When her mothers agent reads the blog, Mallory ends up in her own whirlwind drama, both at school and on the lot, as she works to protect the integrity of her original idea, cope with her mothers jealousy, and get her best friend a lead role on the show. Factor in her boyfriend with the girlfriend, the cute but bad brother to said-best-friend, and the super-cute male lead on her show, and Mallorys got plenty of her own melodrama to cope with.

Mallory's mother is the oft-nominated, never-winning star of a daytime soap; the ultimate drama queen. Mallory starts blogging about how she wishes soaps were more like real kids' lives. When her mother's agent reads the blog, Mallory ends up in her own whirlwind drama.

This book was a good book if you like stories about Hollywood, soap operas and the such. It was a really fun read and I thought that the author did a very nice job in making the characters and events in this book seem like they were really happening.
