The characters in this fun novel are
true to themselves all the way through to their selfish little hearts. In the end,
a bit of humanity shines through to
the shallow world of fame and deception in which the characters live. A guilty pleasure!
Emma and Sutton are formerly respected news anchors turned cat- fighting divas. Finn, the "gay sidekick," represents humor and sanity on the panel, while Simone personifies the shallow fashionista demographic. Each of their personal lives is in crisis, and they will have to work together to solve their problems -- or all go down in flames together. (Kensington, Oct., 304 pp., $14.00)
