"I love the way Heather and Jessica write. They're so funny, and so fashion-y, which is incredibly rare."—Mindy Kaling, Emmy-nominated writer, actress, and New York Times bestselling author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)
is soapy, funny and full of the Fug Girls' trademark Hollywood snark. I want to read the sequel NOW."—Megan McCafferty, New York Times bestselling author of Bumped and the Jessica Darling series
"The companion novel to Spoiled
is a treat. On one level, there are enough witty observations and laugh-out-loud lines to make this about as much fun as you can have reading a book. But, at its heart, this is an engaging, well-plotted story about two girls who are not as different as they seem..."—VOYA
"Satirizing Hollywood is a time-honored literary pastime, but timely satirical touches keep things fresh...For most of the lowlife celebrities skewered, fame will be justly fleeting, but this novel should have a longer shelf life, thanks to a cast of complex characters who offer ample evidence that, F. Scott Fitzgerald notwithstanding, the rich and famous are like you and me."—Kirkus
"This engaging, entertaining follow-up companion to Spoiled
(2011) features plenty of snark, style, and Hollywood-centric satire, but also sympathy for the girls as they navigate familiar issues like wanting parental approval and pursuing their dreams."—Booklist
"This story of hidden identities and love triangles is a fun and fast read... All of the characters have well-developed personalities, and teens will want to be along for any future adventures."—SLJ
