Synopsis (from back page)
When Angel is discovered by a model agent, her life changes for ever. Young, beautiful and sexy, she seems destined for a successful career and, very quickly, the glitzy world of celebrity fame and riches becomes her new home.
But then she meets Mickey, the lead singer of a boy band, who is as irresistible as he is dangerous, and Angel realises that a rising star can just as quickly fall…
I was initially a little sceptical about reading this book, mainly because of it’s connection to Jordan and the fact that it was ghost-written, however my nosiness finally got the better of me and now having read it I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised. Now don’t get me wrong it’s certainly not going to be winning any great literary prizes any time soon but if you want to just while away a few hours with some fairly frothy chick lit then it certainly works quite well.
The storyline itself focuses on the life of a glamour model and the seedier side of ‘celebrity’ life and although I personally wasn’t all that keen on the main character’s occupation or more to the point her drug habits, she was overall a fairly likable character albeit a little naive at times. I do have to admit though to being a little shocked at the things she was getting up to, particularly when you take into consideration that when the story first starts she’s only just turning seventeen. I don’t know maybe I’ve just led a very sheltered life but I did think that a couple of the subject matters were a little irresponsible to say the least when the book is primarily marketed at young girls.
Overall this is a fairly entertaining and enjoyable read although how Katie Price has the audacity to put her name to it when we all know she didn’t write it is beyond me. Okay so she may have come up with the initial plot line – which lets fact it is a pretty much carbon copy of her own life so it wasn’t exactly any great stretch of the imagination – but in all honesty any credit that is due should go to the real author, Rebecca Farnworth.
