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.
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)
