At eighteen, Jillian Lauren was an NYU theater school dropout with a tip about an upcoming audition. The “casting director” told her that a rich businessman in Singapore would pay pretty American girls $20,000 if they stayed for two weeks to spice up his parties. Soon Jillian was on a plane to Borneo, where she would spend the next eighteen months in the harem of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, the youngest brother of the Sultan of Brunei, leaving behind her gritty East Village apartment for a palace with rugs laced with gold and trading her band of artist friends for a coterie of backstabbing beauties.

More than just a sexy book set in an exotic land, Some Girls is also the story of how a rebellious teen found herself and the courage to meet her birth mother and, eventually, adopt a baby boy.

    " Fascinating details about life in Brunei from a not so fascinating writer. I have a love-hate relationship with memoirs in general. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Yuska Vonita | 1/31/2014

    " The story is "okay" not that fascinating or thrilling. I found it boring after 4-5 chapters. The plot is too slow and the language is hard to understand. I don't get why she came back to the harem. I like the cover though. "
