Lizabeth Zindel lived in LA for five years, where she worked in the film industry. She is now back in New York City, where she is focusing on her writing full-time. But she retains strong ties to LA and she returns for visits several times per year.From School Library Journal:
Grade 8–10—The summer before senior year, Lily is trying to boost her chances of getting into Brown. When her internship at the Museum of Modern Art falls through, she uses her dad's connections to become an assistant to Sabrina Snow, a Lindsay Lohan-ish celebrity. Predictably, Snow holds Lily to impossible expectations and rarely shows appreciation. Meanwhile, her noncelebrity boyfriend falls for Lily, who, despite genuine affection for him, rejects his advances because of her commitment to Sabrina. A side plot involving a letter from a desperate fan and Lily's efforts to help the tormented preteen takes center stage toward the end, helping Lily to realize what really counts. Like Lauren Weisberger's The Devil Wears Prada (Doubleday, 2003), this book attempts to give readers a glimpse into the secret lives of the rich and famous. More often, it falls prey to paragraphs overflowing with clichés, stilted dialogue, and poor characterization. Well into the book, readers lack key information about the narrator. Zindel fails to make her funny or interesting, so much so that she becomes a poor choice as a window into Sabrina's life. While the flashy cover will draw readers to this book, they will reluctantly trudge through the story, wishing they had a wittier guide at the helm.—Jennifer Barnes, Homewood Library, IL
