Way, way darker than I expected -- but oddly better, too. I wouldn't call this a beach read, even though it's written by a former supermodel / former America's Next Top Model judge. I love Paulina and thought she seemed bright and cheerful in interviews and on ANTM, but this novel -- although *good*, was a little depressing. Reminded me a little bit of White Oleander, although I *loved* that book and gave it five stars. This is in a similar vein though. ( )

Paulina can spin quite the Bridget Jones as teen model tale...
wonder how much of it is autobiographical ( )

I enjoyed the first two thirds or so of this novel. The ending was another story however. It felt like the author just stopped, it was so incomplete and empty. ( )

pretty good; a little predictable, but a fun read

This book surprised me. I was totally engrossed in this story and could not put this book down. It is very edgy and sexy and overall an amazing read. ( )
