In the novel there are I believe 4 stories. Denver, Carolyn, Anabelle, and Bobby. All 4 of them went to the same high school in L.A. and hadn't talked to each other for a while.
The title refers to Annabelle, the center of the story that brings the quartet back together. Annabelle's mother is shot in the face and no one knows who murdered her....more
This review is from: Poor Little Bitch Girl (Hardcover)
I have never read Jackie Collins before this book, but I will definately read more! I loved this book! This book reminded me a lot of Candace Bushnell's books (she wrote Sex and the City). I enjoyed her books also! I loved how all the characters came together. My favorite character by far was Denver. I felt like Annabelle and Carolyn didn't have much substance to them, but Devner hit the spot for me. I was sec...more

I don’t know how Jackie Collins comes up with these characters, there are so many of them and each one of them is very interesting. Because there are so many characters, you would probably think that somehow that would be confusing, but I can assure it...more
Right now I am on page 57. This book reminds me of the world, because it is so corrupt and deceiving. I think the book is shocking, but it's pretty good so far. I felt shocked and worried when Annabelle went to the hotel for Sharif Rahni's son because she could have gotten hurt. I'm not finished with this book yet, but I think Annabelle will find out about her mothers death, and Denver will see Annabelle again. Hopefully Carolyn and the senator end up being together for the baby, even though I...more
One of Bobby’s buddies is Frankie, the coke-addicted boyfriend of Annabelle Maestro, another classmate and the daughter of movie star parents. Frankie and Annabelle, perpetually short of cash despite Annabelle’s generous allowance, have started their own exclusive call girl busin...more
The book follows the lives of 5 main people, with the lives of a few more people interspersed, and how they meet, interact and react to certain events that are about to happen.
Annabelle: poor little bitch girl, daughter of two Hollywood stars
Frankie: Annabelle's cokehead boyfriend with dreams of grandeur
Denver: female lawyer. Knew Annabelle in school.
Carolyn: friend of Denver. Having an affair and is pregna...more
There were many characters and I wondered how and if they were ever going to connect. She was introducing new characters even in the last...more
This book was chock-full of every vice known to man: gambling, drinking, smoking, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, kidnapping, murder, prostitution. And all were perpetrated by snotty rich kids that are heirs to their parents fortunes. Seriously, if you're ever feeling down on yourself, read this and tell yourself, "Well! I'm not as bad as these losers!"
Overall, an intriguing book told from...more
The main characters, although very different front each other, hit close to home, and I personally really enjoyed the character of Denver Jones. Additi...more
I took off a star because the book was very rape-y for a book written by a strong female author about so many strong female characters. But, who can blame Jackie Collins, when the far rape-ier 50 Shades of Gray has been on the best seller list for so long. Also, What's wrong with us? Hello Everyone!! It is not...more
I can relate to this because sometimes I don't even know what's going on in my...more
Denver Jones is an up and coming successful lawyer. Denver has just scored the biggest client of her career…Ralph Maestro. Mr. Maestro is the number one suspect in the murder o...more
A whole subplot revolves around a character in a completely different location from the rest, almost totally removed from the main action at hand. In fact, with all the trashy subplots and glitzy locations, it's hard for any of the plots or characters to be more than cardboard cutout...more
While the book was somewhat pointless, kinda like reading gossip articles it was a nice break from the more "serious" books I read. I will have to say I have never seen a book with 80+ chapters, which was crazy to me but I liked the way the bo...more
Poor Little Bitch Girl wasn't my ABSOLUTE favorite read of hers, but it was comforting, in a way, to just sit back for a few hours and let the superficial world of Hollywood take over.
It was somewhat strange that the Denver chapters were in first person present tense...more
There was no defined plot until about halfway through the book, and even then, it took until the last 75 pages to really pick up. Once I dragged myself to that point, I couldn't put it down. Unfortunately the first 400 pages could easily be considered 'take it, or leave it'. I couldn't get into it.
I was really hoping her writing would be easy to follow an...more
There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of power brokers-Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out.
Jackie Collins has been called a "raunchy...more
