Lola Carlyle is bored over her summer. Her friend Sydney calls her from rehab and let's her know what a dream her stay there is. Just like a spa, with massages, facials and the best part? Lola's crush Wade Miller has taken time off filming and checked himself in.
"No, listen, rehab is the new 'vacation.' Everyone's going these days."
"Not if they have no addictions."
"Sure they do. People go for just about anything. Gambling, internet addiction, eating disorders, cutting, prescription drugs. They go to convince their spouses they'll stop boning other people-the list goes on."

So Lola starts trying to fake her way to the rehab clinic. She goes with being an alcoholic because she thinks it would be the easiest to fake and none of the horrible withdrawals.

Once she arrives at the rehab center she finds out it's not all Sydney made it out to be. Oh, by the way, Sydney is no longer there. Her parents checked her out.
These people have actual addictions. They have hurt and pain. Lola starts off as a mouthy asshole. Used to getting her way. She makes out that her movie star dad is wonderful, and her parents separating because her soap star mom was having an affair with a female former porn star now stunt woman was all fine.
She mouths off to everyone. She skips her counseling and AA meetings.

She is after all a Celubu-spawn. Her parents will get her out of any mess she gets herself into. That's what happens when you are Celubu-spawn.

Then Lola starts to change. She realizes she has more problems that she wants to let on.
There is some romance in this book but it's not insta-love. There is a slight triangle but it's done well. All in all..this is not a bad little book.
