She got her Irish-sounding name from the immigration official who mish

Although the book had it's charming and humorous moments, I found it to be quite shallow for the bulk of the story. Addison is such a hollow character. By the way she was written, I think you were supposed to feel sorry for her but you really don't. I mean, when she gets arrested for assult, all she can think about is checking the internet to see what people are saying about her! And at the hearing when it's decided that she'll get deported to her father's country, the judge and everyone else in ...more

This is the story of an “exotic” beauty’s rags-to-riches-to-slammer story. (“exotic” because of the indiscernible ethnicity.)

“I was less the child of my parents and more a child of America.” (19) All Addison wanted was to be in the spotlight. She was such a vain and shallow character that sometimes comes up with a witty remark.

Why did I choose to read this? I must’ve

Quick to read, but that's about it. Main character was too self-centered, story line wasn't too thrilling...just an ok book.

The leading character is Addison and she is a host for a hit morning TV talk show. I found Addison to be annoying, the humor was so so and the story hard to follow.

(From the domestic front.) Working mostly for The Courier-Journal in Louisville, Ky, I interviewed visiting vice presidents, traveling first ladies and Fabio. It was all terribly exciting.

But I d
