Review: Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper
Movie Star by Lizzie Pepper by Hilary Liftin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Hollywood life—exposed—is what you get with a novel like Movie Star. This book follows the ups and downs of Chicago girl Lizzie Pepper from the beginning of her magical romance with one of the industry's hottest starts Rob Mars, right the end of it all. Lizzie's life seems like a fairy tale until the One Cell Studio, Rob's secreted practice with it and Lizzie's eventual joining of the practice all make for an interesting ride through life.
I enjoyed reading this book because much of it mirrors aspects of what some real celebrities deal with day in and day out: PR, always needing to have the right image, imprisoned in luxury, trying to find an escape. Lizzie was a very believable character and because the book was written in the style of a tell-all autobiography, it brings the reader that much closer to the action. I enjoyed reading it and would love to see what this author does in the future.
