Summery:

In her electrifying first novel, Nicole Richie tells the sensational story of Chloe Parker, a rock royalty princess and a card-carrying member of Hollywood's inner circle. At the age of seven, Chloe was adopted by a music superstar and his wife, transforming her life from rags to riches. What followed was a wild childhood distinguished by parties with movie stars and rock idols, run-ins with the press and the police, and a subsequent stint in rehab. Suddenly Chloe shoots to instant fame as a spokesmodel for a national ad campaign. When her long-lost birth father appears out of nowhere and her best friend betrays her, she must struggle to keep it all together -- her sobriety, her friendships, and her integrity despite the betrayals of those around her. Ultimately, Chloe comes spectacularly into her own, achieving stardom in her own right and finding true love. Through the eyes of the captivating Chloe and the talented voice of Nicole Richie, we are given a no-holds-barred look at Hollywood's new elite, behind the velvet ropes, inside star-studded premieres and parties. Whether they're doing the "circuit" (begin with shopping at Barneys New York, Marni, and Fred Segal, then end with the grilled vegetable salad at the Ivy), or ending up on the front page of your favorite weekly magazine, Chloe Parker and her fellow A-listers never fail to dazzle, their larger-than-life dramas more riveting than any reality show.

My Review
When I first saw this in a book store I was Like Do I really want to read this?, in the ead I did end up buying it and I read it in one day, it was that good.
This story is about Chloe Parker's struggle with fame, drugs, and romance. I found it to be a page-turner and always interested in what was going to happen next. I was actually shocked at how much I enjoyed this book.
It gives you an insight into the live of people in the spotlight and what can really go wrong if you don't have people in your life to keep you grounded. I've read reviews from other people saying it was badly written and wasn't that great, but there where just as many good reviews as there where bad ones.
Really enjoyed reading that novel,I recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Nicole Richie's but also anyone else who is looking for a good read.
