This novel is a good example of realistic fiction, even though most of the events that unravel throughout the story probably haven't happened before, but they could. ( )

This is a good book. This book was a quick read but the beggining did not make sense at first but keep reading. I think that anyone that reads this book will enjoy. This book was about a girl that goes to visit her mom in hollywood. When she arrives she sees what it is like for her mom. I think that it does not deserve a 5 but more like a 4.9. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0440418666, Paperback)

The sixth Sammy Keyes book is one of the most exciting yet, as Sammy and her friend Marissa decide to blow town and take a bus to the seedy, insane town of Hollywood to surprise (and shake some sense into) Sammy's mother, the elusive Lady Lana. When they arrive, they discover that she's transformed herself into the glamorous, platinum-blonde, "25-year-old" actress Dominique Windsor, who certainly could never have spawned a 12-year-old--let alone a scruffy, no-nonsense girl like Sammy. The plot thickens, however, as Lady Lana's masquerade backfires in the most dreadful of ways and Sammy is left to save the day and solve the biggest mystery of her life. (Ages 10 and older)
