Susanna has always been obsessed with celebrities and all the gossip that goes along with them. She knows everything there is to know about all the A-List stars that roam the earth. Susanna's previous jobs have never been very glamorous, or anything even close to dealing with celebs. But it all changes when summer comes around and Susanna lands a spot at the hottest publication ever, Scene magazine.

The perfect job for the perfect person... right?

Sure, Susanna knows all there is to celebrities, but interacting with them and actually talking to them is a whole different ballpark. Besides, meeting someone famous can be pretty intimidating most of the time. Susanna's amateurism is shown when she gets the chance to ask Brad Pitt some questions, and doesn't even make it to the meeting on time. After that, Susanna's celebrity interactions takes on a snowball effect, becoming horrible one after the other.

Aside from getting coffee for her bossy boss, to making sure her outfits are cute enough, Susanna has to try her best to find the biggest scoop of the summer to show everyone that she can do anything they can do. Let's just hope she finds some good gossip quickly before she gets fired (even if she can't really get fired in an internship).

A novel that revolves around a girl who is determined, SUSANNA SEES STARS is one book that we can all appreciate. Both genuine and entertaining, Susanna takes her job one step at a time, making her the perfect heroine for those who aspire to have the same job as her. The perfect read for anyone -- and with a sequel coming soon. ( )

This book was good, and had good characters. I liked the realism of the book. At least it wasn’t like the girl moving up a business 2 days. I thought the book would be different, maybe with more action. AHS/BB

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385735138, Paperback)

SUSANNA BARRINGER'S INTERNSHIP at Scene magazine is a dream come true. She'll scoop the latest celebrity stories and be the youngest journalist to rub elbows with the stars.

But her first real celebrity sighting is a disaster. And her second. Then her third. Her boss can't remember her name. And her co-workers are mocking her interview skills along with her fashion sense. Is Susanna out of her league? Or can she reach the stars to get the scoop of the summer?

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:16:10 -0400)

Work experience at a celebrity news magazine has to be the chance for Susanna to shine, if only the editor would see her as more than the tea girl.
