"Hollywood Nobody" by Lisa Samson

In terms of plot, this book is pretty engaging. There is a teenage girl as he protagonist with her own Hollywood blog. With her family being in the acting business, she is around the actual Hollywood scene quite a lot. Drama ensues when love triangles form and the girl learns about a mystery man and what her real family roots are. My only criticism would have to be the writing style. Thoughts seem to be convoluted and in a state of disarray. Whether or not this is meant to represent the thought process of the protagonist, it many annoy readers. Also, I hate to say this, but I'll just come out and say it. Most teenage books are written by authors who are past the teen age. Some of these books are well suited for teens and fit in with their culture and whatnot. However, some just seem like they are written by older authors trying to sound younger and put their foot in the door of young pop culture. Sadly, this book is the latter.
