In her electrifying first novel, Nicole Richie tells the sensational story of Chloe Parker, a rock royalty princess and a card-carrying member of Hollywood's inner circle. At the age of seven, Chloe was adopted by a music superstar and his wife, transforming her life from rags to riches. What followed was a wild childhood distinguished by parties with movie stars and rock idols, run-ins with the press and the police, and a subsequent stint in rehab.
Suddenly Chloe shoots to instant fame as a spokesmodel for a national ad campaign. When her long-lost birth father appears out of nowhere and her best friend betrays her, she must struggle to keep it all together -- her sobriety, her friendships, and her integrity despite the betrayals of those around her. Ultimately, Chloe comes spectacularly into her own, achieving stardom in her own right and finding true love.
Through the eyes of the captivating Chloe and the talented voice of Nicole Richie, we are given a no-holds-barred look at Hollywood's new elite, behind the velvet ropes, inside star-studded premieres and parties. Whether they're doing the "circuit" (begin with shopping at Barneys New York, Marni, and Fred Segal, then end with the grilled vegetable salad at the Ivy), or ending up on the front page of your favorite weekly magazine, Chloe Parker and her fellow A-listers never fail to dazzle, their larger-than-life dramas more riveting than any reality show.
Who knew Nicole Richie can write a book? Obviously not a good one but at least she tried. Let's hope she won't try again.
Here are the pointers:
1. Story is the typical Hollywood celebrity scene. Do your self a favor and just buy the tabloids. The loads of crap in there is way better than what is written in this book.
2. The book is not a memoir but it definitely seems like it.
3. If you are familiar with Nicole Richie's circle of friends' you'll find out that they are characters in her book. She might as well used their real names.
4. The over the top cover is where the title had it's righteous place. Not the story. Nicole probably only use "The Truth about Diamonds" as the title so she can wear her blings. *shrugs*
5. Ok, the book did not totally sucked. It was entertaining, it's funny and if you like the infamous "Hollywood" scene and scandals, betrayal and friendship and all it's glamour this is you then. (But seriously pointer #1 - I recommend)
6. Do not expect any moral in this book. There is none. Take it as it is.
