Likey Story is about a girl named Mallory who ends up writing a soap tv show. She never knew she would have to go through all of the work she went through.

She had her boyfriend Keith with her most of the way. Her mother an actress of the show that got replaced by her daughter's show isn't very nice.

Mallory starts missing school and has a crush on one of the cast members. Mallory's life is a big twister of stuff. She can barely control it. Mallory and the cast member Dallas have had a few steamy
I bought this book while I was on vacation last year, so I haven't updated in quite some time. But while I was reading it on vacation, I couldn't put it down! I got about 3/4 through the book then just kind of got bored with it. It was dragging onto long, and I just wasn't as in to it as I was when I first started reading it. I might read it again some day, and actually finish. But from what I can remember, the first little bit was very good! Just the ending was slightly dissapointing.
Yes it's a YA book about soaps...don't judge cause it's a whole lotta fun!! A quick fun read about a girl, Mallory, with a narcissistic soap diva mom. Mal head writes a new TV show all while juggling her crazy social life...she's smart, funny and surprisingly real.
I loved it. It was filled with a lot of drama and cool stuff. Like you never really knew what would happen with Mallory & Keith because they would get together but there was always the show getting in between of their relationship. It was a great book!
