Oh, what fun. Cherry Pye (A thinly-disguised Lindsay Lohan;like Britney Spears) is the center of this novel...the rising star of Jailbait Records has no talent, but that doesn't matter. Cherry's career and the pathetic family she supports are explained in jaw-dropping detail. Hiaasen takes satire to the edge and brings the audience with him. Thoroughly entertaining and a whole lot of fun. Like all of his adult books, events are sometimes in poor taste, but his skill and credentials result in a guilty pleasure for the reader without too much guilt. :) If you've ever followed celebrities, it's a must-read. A great summer novel.
