Spoiled“Sixteen-year-old Molly Dix has just discovered that her biological father is Brick Berlin, world famous movie star and red-carpet regular. Intrigued (and a little terrified) by her Hollywood lineage, Molly moves to Los Angeles and plunges headfirst into the deep of Beverly Hills celebrity life. Just as Molly thinks her life couldn’t get any stranger, she meets Brooke Berlin, her gorgeous, spoiled half sister, who welcomes Molly to la-la land with a smothering dose “sisterly love”…but in this town, nothing is ever what it seems.

Sometimes I love a cute, fun story that is sure to lighten up the mood. Spoiled was just that. It’s written by the writers from celebrity blog GoFugYourself.com, so I had high hopes for it. You had a bit of everything you’d expect from a book centered in the world of fame and fortune, from designer clothes to mean girls. Translation it’s a bit cliche of other books and movies centered, but it’s such a great read it’s totally worth it.

When Molly’s mother dies her last wish is that Molly reconnect with the father she never knew. Molly is a strong character, despite what she’s gone through. Brick Berlin is pretty much the hottest well-known actor in Hollywood, so you get tons of name dropping from Quentin Tarantino to Megan Fox. Brick is the typical workaholic father with little to no time for his kids, but you can tell he’s sincere in the little bit that he does say. Then we have Brooke, the sister with even more issues than Molly. I won’t get into what the synopsis means by “nothing is ever what it seems” since I don’t want to spoil the book, but let’s just say you pretty much get your typical mean girl scenario involving many different characters. That’s not to say every character in this book is only looking out for themselves, Molly easily makes a couple of amazing friends in Beverly Hills that I adore. The characters are all well-written to the point they feel realistic. The writing itself is sarcastic at times, which I love. It’s also very smart and witty. It’s not your typical Hollywood read, by any means.

While the storyline is a bit predictable, there are some interesting side stories that I pray a sequel continues, such as the story about Brooke’s mom. It’s definitely a book I’ll pick up if a sequel is written. The ending is a bit too open-ended for my tastes, almost as if they ran out of pages to fit the story into, but it was a hopeful ending.

I received my review copy of Spoiled from Little Brown in exchange for my honest review.
