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!
