L.A. Candy Kindle Edition
From the Inside Flap
Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer . . . everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.
When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a reality version of Sex and the City, they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!
Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara--free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres--and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.
In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.
L.A. Candy is a deliciously entertaining novel about what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl who has experienced it all firsthand: Lauren Conrad.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

I have been waiting to read this book for a little while now, as being a fan of Laguna Beach and The Hills, I wanted to see if Lauren Conrad could actually produce a decent book. And she can! It provided an interesting insight into how these types of reality shows are filmed.
The best element of the book were the characters. They were well-rounded and I became engrossed in the plot because of them. I did have trouble believing that Scarlett could be allowed to film without brushing her hair or putting on make-up but thats not a really important fact. I believed in the Jane/Scarlett BFF, and Madison was fun to read about purely because she was so scheming. It was hard to warm up to the Braeden character though. I felt there could've been more for Gaby to do too.
I finished this is a day as it wasn't too long and had a good time reading something light after getting through some pretty heavy books recently. I immediately purchased the next two straight after this one. A fantastic light read!
