This seemed like a solid three-star book up until the end, which was abrupt and frustrating and left me wondering why I'd just wasted the last few hours on this book. The premise was interesting: an insider's look at being a personal assistant to a mega pop-star, with some family drama thrown on top because in this case the pop star and the assistant were cousins who grew up together in Oklahoma. Of course the Assistant Cousin gets sucked into the screwed up family drama of Pop Star Cousin, who has been a star since her pre-teen years and whose parents are her over-controlling managers. The Pop Star's life becomes a total train wreck and I kept waiting for the Assistant Cousin to be the voice of reason to help stop the train, but she got drawn into all the mess, too. It was sad and chaotic and I guess supposed to be like what Britney Spears went through... but I mostly just wish I could get back the time I spent on this book because the ending was so lame.
