Truly, this book is not good. It is written from the perspective of Olympia, the mother of 4. Her twin girls are invited to attend a coming out gala with New York's upper society. Everything in the book has to do with preparing for the ball and the struggles of getting everyone there. (Seriously, was this an important enough topic to write a book about?) Oh and it deals with the 'political' struggles of organizations that do not include all demographics, teenagers who get tattoos, and being gay... Actually, I should not say it deals with them. It mentions these ideas, but skims over the top, never actually making them an issue. I have read a couple of other Danielle Steel books that were actually enjoyable, but this one was just a joke.

I listened to this book on CD while on a road trip. I just kept listening waiting for something important to happen or at least to have a decent romance scene that would guiltily catch my interest - but nothing.

I felt the exact same way, and listened to the audiobook, too. I kept expecting the narrator to break script and start complaining about the drivel he was forced to read when he'd always meant to come to Hollywood to be a star.
