"Thank God you're here, Adriana!" Mrs. Warner called out.
Taking a deep breath, Adrienne decided to stand up for herself. "Adrienne," she said clearly. "My name is Adrienne."
"How terrible. You should change it. Adriana has a bit of chic to it. Now, where are your bags?"
"My bags?" Adrienne asked, incredulous.
"Well, darling, you don't think that we could open the house in Palm Beach without having someone to watch Emma, do you?"
Sixteen-year-old Adrienne Lewis is in charge of eight-year-old Emma Warner, an evil genius who has gotten all five previous nannies fired -- and Emma is the good news. Because then there's Emma's seventeen-year-old half-sister, Cameron. Everyone knows how wild Cameron is. Everyone knows what a liar Cameron is. Everyone knows what a user Cameron is. Everyone except Adrienne.
Adrienne's best friend, Liz, tries to warn her, but Adrienne tells Liz she's the one who doesn't know the real Cameron! Together, Adrienne and Cameron indulge in shopping sprees, bar hopping, and crazy, drunken parties.
Does Cameron actually want Adrienne to become her new best friend?
Of course not.
Cameron wants Adrienne's boyfriend.
True to life, funny, and oh, so catty, Confessions of a Teen Nanny gives the behind-the-scenes scoop on what it's like to work and play with the rich and famous.

Victoria Ashton was born in New York and attended an elite private school. She has worked and played with the rich and famous and has seen it all—the good, the bad, and the completely outrageous. Victoria divides her time among New York City, the Hamptons, and London. She is also the author of Confessions of a Teen Nanny and Rich Girls.From School Library Journal:
Grade 8 Up -Adrienne is hired as a nanny to Emma Warner, a precocious child from an ultra-rich New York family. Using lies, bribery, and blackmail, the eight-year-old tests Adrienne, but the teen manages to keep the upper hand with her charge-most of the time. The same is not true of Adrienne's relationship with Emma's sister, Cam, who is Adrienne's age. Using the same bag of tricks, she has Adrienne believing that they are friends. What Cam offers would be hard for any teen to resist-free designer clothes, invitations to fabulous parties, flying on a private jet, staying in a mansion. But all that glitters is not gold. Soon she forces Adrienne to arrange clandestine parties where out-of-control rich kids partake of sex, alcohol, and drugs. Then Adrienne is drugged and photographed in compromising situations. Worst of all, she is blamed for jewels stolen at a party. The book ends rather abruptly, with a simple explanation for the stolen jewelry, revealed in one sentence. Whether or not Adrienne wins back the boyfriend Cam attempts to steal is left dangling, as if to pave the way for a sequel. But neither of these shortcomings detracts seriously from the enjoyment of the book. Fans of Cecily von Ziegesar's "Gossip Girl" series or Zoey Dean's "The A-List" series (both Little, Brown) will like this offering.-Catherine Ensley, Latah County Free Library District, Moscow, ID
