Pagan Jones, Hollywood star, had killed her whole family while driving drunk. Now, in juvenile detention, she finally gets a chance to be released when a guy named Devin Black offers her a role in a film. However, Devin seems extremely suspicious, and Pagan discovers many secrets as she goes back into the world with him.

Interesting book. I don't usually read historical fiction, but this one captured my attention well. It's almost like a behind-the-scenes peek into the mind of an alcoholic celebrity. Not only did Pagan have to struggle with her reintroduction to Hollywood, she had to figure out many mysteries, like why her mother had killed herself, and why Devin Black was acting so strangely. There was plenty of action and suspense, and even history from World War II.

However, the backstories and history were hard to follow sometimes. But overall, I got the gist of it. Those parts were alright.

I round my rating up to 3.5, and I do recommend it. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Pagan Jones went from America's sweetheart to fallen angel in one fateful night in 1960: the night a car accident killed her whole family. Pagan was behind the wheel and driving drunk. Nine months later, she's stuck in the Lighthouse Reformatory for Wayward Girls and tortured by her guilt--not to mention the sadistic Miss Edwards, who takes special delight in humiliating the once-great Pagan Jones. But all of that is about to change. Pagan's old agent shows up with a mysterious studio executive, Devin Black, and an offer. Pagan will be released from juvenile detention if she accepts a juicy role in a comedy directed by award-winning director Bennie Wexler. The shoot starts in West Berlin in just three days. If Pagan's going to do it, she has to decide fast--and she has to agree to a court-appointed "guardian," the handsome yet infuriating Devin, who's too young, too smooth, too sophisticated to be some studio flack. The offer's too good to be true, Berlin's in turmoil and Devin Black knows way too much about her--there's definitely something fishy going on. But if anyone can take on a divided city, a scheming guardian and the criticism of a world that once adored her, it's the notorious Pagan Jones. What could go wrong?… (more)
