What's a struggling, down-on-her-luck writer to do when she receives a job offer to ghostwrite an eighteen year old former Nickelodeon child star turned movie / music pop star's memoir?

In her debut novel, Absolutely True Lies, author Rachel Stuhler weaves a thoroughly entertaining tale that follows fledgling writer Holly Gracin's introduction to the glitter, glamour, and glimpses into the behind the scenes world of Hollywood's rich and famous.

Told in the first person narrative, sassy Holly Gracin takes the reader on a crazy journey as she discovers that the Hollywood lifestyle isn't always full of glitter and glamour. Through Holly's eyes as she shadows young Daisy Mae Dixson, the reader will discover the behind the scenes dark side of show business in Hollywood, a town that is filled with drama, secrets, lies, deceit, and betrayal. The reader will be easily drawn into this clever tale, it has a great mixture of humor, wit, hilarious trials and tribulations, and even a touch of romance that makes this a truly fun story to read!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that the author uses her professional experience to weave a delightful tale full of laugh-out-loud moments that will leave you wanting more.

Absolutely True Lies is a quick paced and enjoyable story to read on a lazy summer day.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 147676302X, Paperback)

A fledgling entertainment writer stumbles into the gig of a lifetime writing a teenage pop star’s memoir and soon realizes that the young celebrity's squeaky-clean image is purely a work of fiction.

Struggling writer Holly Gracin is on the verge of moving back home to upstate New York when she gets hired to write the memoirs of eighteen-year-old Daisy Mae Dixson, a former Nickelodeon child star who has moved seamlessly into both blockbuster movies and pop music.

Holly quickly realizes that Daisy’s wholesome public image is purely a work of fiction, as Holly finds herself trailing the star as she travels around the world on yachts, gets stalked by paparazzi, and sneaks out of five-star hotels in the dead of night.

As Holly struggles to write a flattering portrait of a teenage millionaire who only eats “nightshades” and treats her employees like slaves, Daisy has a public meltdown—and suddenly, her book is the cornerstone of resurrecting her image. But working at all hours trailing a pop star has taken its toll, and Holly must decide if becoming the ultimate insider is worth losing a starring role in her own life.

Fun, juicy, and inspired by Rachel Stuhler’s own stranger-than-fiction experiences as a celebrity ghost writer, Absolutely True Lies is an entertaining look at how the lifestyles of the rich and famous aren’t always what they seem.
