Pop Tart - Kira Coplin

Pop Tart is a novel set in the world of pop, glamour and Hollywood. Brooke Parker is the rising young, all-american star and Jackie O'Reilly is an aspiring make-up artist who is along for the ride. Jackie befriends Brooke who seems young and innocent at times. She is fun and kind-hearted, but also impulsive and volatile.

The pair quickly become swamped by the glitz and glamour of the celebrity lifestyle as Brookes star goes into meteoric ascent. Hounded by press and the failure of her first relationship, Brooke is thrust into the spotlight and her management expects her to stay there.

Jackie is quick to take advantage of the jet-set lifestyle, but following a disastrous series of events, she realises that she needs to step back and truly follow her own dreams. But is it too late for her to help Brooke?

Any reader will see lots of truth in this story, written as it is by two Hollywood insiders. Ultimately, it's not really original, given the fact that we've seen all this before in the press, but it is a fast-paced, summer read.
