Amy Spencer is an accidental celebrity. On Monday, she s a normal college student in Michigan. By the end of the week, she s in Hollywood, starring in a TV pilot - as a regular girl from Michigan. It s all fun and games until the show gets picked up and Amy learns the terrible price of stardom - to keep the part she didn t even want at first, she s going to have to get the Hollywood Car Wash to make her more marketable. First, she ll have to lose twenty pounds. She’ll also need new teeth, blonder hair, and a megastar boyfriend with a big secret. By changing everything from her weight to her hair to her name, Amy slowly learns that the only way to survive in Hollywood is to lose herself. Inspired by true events, this shockingly accurate novel about the ins and outs of the Hollywood game will leave the reader wondering - who is Star?

Ever wonder what the life of an instant star is like? The in’s and out’s of the Hollywood lifestyle? Have you ever just wanted to be an instant star or perhaps you’ve already had (pretend) interview sessions with Leno and Oprah being the star you are? Well then this book is for you.

I ate up every page of this book. I felt like I was the instant star and loved following Amy “Star” around on her day to day life, all the good and the bad stuff. It was a total trip to be on the set of a hit TV show, to see all that “behind the scenes” stuff us normal folk are unaware of, that celeb’s go through to keep their jobs.

Not only do I appreciate the life of celebs more after reading Hollywood Car Wash, even if some of this is fabricated (though, can I ever really know this isn’t what it’s like?) but I crave the lime light a little less knowing what I, the average mid-western girl would have had to go through to have the job I have always dreamed of. I don’t think I would survive a “Hollywood Car Wash”. Read the book and tell me, do you think you would?

I loved this book so much, I am going to give away my autographed copy so that someone else can fall in love with it too! Follow the entry form below, and if you don’t win I suggest you pick up a copy ASAP, summer isn’t over and this one is a MUST HAVE for your beach bag, or even for a read in the tub! I will read anything Lori Culwell writes from here on out!
