It’s unfortunate, but not surprising, I guess, that there is a backlash to Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s Spoiled, a novel that is a fun and important read. Important? Yes, because as a YA novel these keen observers of the nexus of celebrity and fashion took a subject matter that fascinates young people and exposes it for what it is. I covered red-carpet events for legit media and when I talk to young people all they care about is: who did you meet?, what did they wear?, how many Tweets of yours got “Re-Tweeted”? Spoiled is an entertaining antidote to that trend. And for those of you looking for something more biting, try the authors' blog GoFugYourself and following their live Sarcastic Sartorial Screed on Twitter (@Fuggirls) during any of the big celebrity gatherings is a must for any Red Carpet "looky-loo". I haven’t yet cracked the spine on Messy, but I’m looking forward to reading the further adventures of Brooke Berlin and Molly Dix.

Madison what is the author's message of the book?


Carol Beggy I took away a modern message of how painful it is sometimes to learn who you can trust and who you cannot trust. There are other messages about excess and modern life and celebrity, but this is a bit of a romp. It is not preachy. Others may disagree.
