Girl of the Moment by Lizabeth Zindel

Lily Miles, entering her senior year of high school, had decided she needs an internship that will set her apart from the rest of the applicants to the school of her choice, Brown University. When her orignal summer plan fails, she begins to wonder why she isn't off at soccer camp like the rest of her friends. That is, until she gets an intership with the Hollywood starlet, Sabrina Snow. As Lily becomes more invested in her relationship with Sabrina her life begins to spin out of control. She notices that her primary support, her dad and her best friend, begin to fade out of the spotlight. Girl of the Moment is a great story that focuses on the importance of love and friendship. Maybe fame isn't everything its cracked up to be.

I really enjoyed Girl of the Moment. I found that the protagonist was incredibly likable. Lily is a good student as well as a good person. Her experiences with Sabrina teach her that people who care and support you are the people you should surround yourself with. This book was an excellent read, a complete page-turner. I fell in love with all of the characters, even the complicated and bratty Sabrina. I would definately recommend this book.

This book contains some teenage drinking and weight related issues. It is not a book to be severely worried about but there are some 'wild' attributes of the characters.
