Hollywood is like high school with money

HollyWood is like High School with Money by Zoey Dean...

Twenty-four-year old Taylor Henning has just landed her dream job as an assistant at a major movie studio. But when her catty coworkers trick her into almost getting fired, she realizes that the old saying "Hollywood is like school with money" just may be true. The thing is, Taylor wasn't exactly a social butterfly in high school-how is she supposed to do any better the second time around?

That's when she meets her boss's popular sixteen-year-old daughter Quinn, and has an epiphany: maybe this teenager can teach her how to use her queen bee tactics to succeed in the Hollywood popularity contest. Quinn comes up with a plan to teach Taylor one lesson a week-everything from "Fake it 'til you make it" to "It's *never* your fault"--and soon Taylor finds herself winning the war against rival assistant Kylie. Until, that is, she's directed to steal Kylie's boyfriend, and something happens that's not in the game plan: Taylor falls for the guy. Now she must do the impossible-- harness her inner mean girl while staying true to herself.

Although this is an adult novel-i quite enjoyed this book! It's fun, witty, catty, and quick;with a side of business and fashion. Hollywood is like high school with money reminded me a lot of devil wears Prada and Confessions of a shopaholic! I loved Taylor and her innocence yet smart-ass qualities, while trying to improve in work through a sixteen year old. Also the side characters were well developed and thought out!!! Also i loved the idea of working for this high end movie company!! Such a cute and fun Beach read! Defiantly worth reading!!
