“I had SO much fun with this hysterical novel about Hollywood, and I can almost guess who the stars (in disguise) are! Abby Stern shows how Los Angeles is as dangerous as Rikers Island, yet how celebrities truly can be as superficial as Kardashians and glamorous as magic, all at once.” —Lucy Sykes, author of Fitness Junkie and The Knockoff

Ella Warren loves her job working for celebrity news magazine, The Life, as an undercover reporter. Her evenings are spent using her alias to discreetly attend red carpet events, nightclubs, and Hollywood hotspots like the fabulous Chateau Marmont, where her eyes are always peeled for the next big celebrity story.

When Ella’s new Devil Wears Prada-type boss starts a not-so-friendly competition among the reporters to find an exclusive story or be fired, the stakes are higher than ever. But is being in Hollywood’s elite inner circle worth jeopardizing her friendship with budding actress Holiday Hall and her relationships with her boyfriend and her family? As the competition grows fiercer, her life becomes intertwined in a public scandal that may cost her everything.

A juicy, big-hearted audiobook about a young woman who loses herself in a fast-paced, glamorous world where finding your authentic self isn’t easy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ella is an undercover celebrity gossip writer who loves her job. That shows in narrator Therese Plummer’s lively tone, which also fills with attitude when Ella has to fight for her place among other Hollywood writers. Plummer seamlessly switches from voicing Ella to portraying her British celebrity bestie whose voice oozes ‘darling’ with languid affection just as easily as it can threaten with clipped tones…This delicious story won’t become dated as the celebrity names are disguised in detailed modifiers like “Southern girl-next-door movie star,” which are quickly rattled off by Plummer.”


  • “A delicious novel.”


  • "According to a Source, written by a real celebrity journalist insider, captures the Hollywood lifestyle perfectly.”


  • “Readers who relish celebrity gossip will have a blast…[a] fun, frothy read.”


  • A Pop Sugar Pick for Spring
