Light and Fluffy Reading

Ever have one of those days when you just need the book equivalent of cotton candy?  I have persuasive letter rough drafts to go over, it feels like it should be Friday already, and I am just plain exhausted.  There is a stack of Cybils nominees next to my coffee table.  Plus, my school district just passed a redistricting plan for next year that could put my job in jeopardy.  Thus, I just needed a fun book to read.  The result?  Me sitting on my couch, in sweatpants, reading Secrets of My Hollywood Life: On Location by Jen Calonita.  Fun, funny, and nothing too heavy!  

Just one of those days.  🙂

Secrets of My Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita

Secrets of My Hollywood Life is a favorite of many of my students. The girls in my class have been passing it around for a few months and are always telling me that I need to read it. The 48 Hour Book Challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Kaitlin Burke is a huge star. She is one of Hollywood’s newest It girls and is living the life. The only problem is, she desperately wants to be normal. When she comes up with a plan to enroll in a local high school in disguise, it seems like she has finally found a way to have a normal life and a Hollywood life. If only everything could be that simple.

Full of backstabbing costars, the drama of high school, and a good dose of reality, Secrets of My Hollywood Life is perfect for fans of tween/teen chick lit.
