At the end of Likely Story, Mallory had just learned that her TV show was greenlit, but that her mother, and arch enemy, was being brought in to play one of the main characters.

Ever since the network decided to go forward with her soap opera idea, LIKELY STORY, Mallory's life has been far from normal.

Meetings with the cast, the writers, the production staff, and photo shoots take up a large chunk of her time. Not to mention that, since she's still underage, she has to keep up with her school work, too. And somehow in all that frenzy and lack of sleep, she needs to find time to spend with her generous boyfriend, Keith. Keith has s

This was a fitting middle book, I suppose. Better than other middle books, which are generally useless. However, Mallory still has no personality and is trapped in a lame love triangle, while her mother is still a complete bitch who doesn't change as a human. Basically in this one Mallory is slowly losing all creative control over her show. Her actors, particularly Dallas, are not amused by this.

usually, i don't root for girls who are confused.
i hate it when lead girl likes 2 guys at the same time.

but i find myself rooting for Mallory. There is realness in her. she doesn't pretend to be all goody-goody. she likes 2 guys. deal with that. haha.

and i love both Keith and Dallas. if i were Mallory, i'd be confused too.

This is the worst book I've read all year. There was so much pointless drama that didn't help the story line at all. the story lacked entertainment and was something I dreaded picking up. I started to skim the last 100 pages to make it to the end. I hate this book. It was a complete waste of my time. I do not recommend.

Maybe not quite as engrossing as the first in the series, still a fun look at the life of a teen soap opera mogul as she struggles to get the show off the ground and deal with her diva mom. Will continue to read if/when more are published...

Sequel to Likely Story. Mallory struggles with the network to keep her soap true to her original concept, while also trying to keep her boyfriend as work dominates her life.
