Funny and light, Billerbeck's latest will appeal to a wide variety of chick lit lovers. Sarah Claire's job as a hairstylist and the steps she takes to become a hairstylist to the stars are fascinating
and entertaining. Sarah Claire's whininess and surprising naivete, however, are quite grating at times. Still, her personal and professional growth by the end of the novel is uplifting and makes this tale worthwhile.

Sarah Claire Winowski wants out of her small Wyoming town and into the big city of Beverly Hills. She knows she has talent as a hairstylist and wants to use it on those in show business. Her cousin, a well-known stylist, gets her a job in a prestigious salon -- and the rest is up to Sarah Claire.

Life in Hollywood isn't quite what she expects, and she may be in for trouble when her alcoholic mother shows up. But she's turning the heads of men for the first time in her life, so she's not about to complain. (THOMAS NELSON, Apr., 304 pp., $13.99)
