Girl of the Moment book. The plot had potential but Zindel wasted it with boring dialogue & incomplete character development. I think I'll stick with Paul's timeless classics moving forward.

Lily is determined to become an intern for the summer, but her first job is cancelled --- which works out to her advantage when 16-year-old Hollywood movie star sensation Sabrina Snow needs someone to work for her. Lily is ecstatic to interview, even though getting the job would mean missing out on going to camp with her best friend and not seeing her crush, Max.

The interview goes well, although Lily ends up selling her nude drawing of Max (created from imagination) to Sabrina at the star's insistence. Before committing to hiring her, Sabrina invites Lily to attend Sabrina's movie premiere, where she manages to fall down on the red carpet. Lily is in charge of dog-sitting Sabrina's little pooch, Mercedes --- who gets away from her and urinates on Sabrina's director.

Sabrina is furious with Lily, but she's even angrier when she notices that Lily is dancing with Sabrina's hunky, funny and nice boyfriend, Bronson. Happily for Lily, Sabrina still hires her, although the star warns her in no uncertain terms to stay away from Bronson.

One of Lily's jobs is sending form letter answers to those who write mail to Sabrina. One letter, in which the fan pleads for Sabrina's help dealing with cruel school bullies, haunts her. However, when Lily tries to get Sabrina involved, the young star simply scoffs. Meanwhile, Lily jeopardizes her job by letting someone not on the list into a press gathering, and the person makes trouble.

Sabrina goes all out to make Lily look ridiculous in front of Bronson, who continues to befriend her. Meanwhile, Lily can't get the desperate fan letter writer out of her mind. What can she do? Lily realizes she's headed for trouble but can't seem to stop her life from careening out of control.

GIRL OF THE MOMENT is an interesting, amusing peek at the rewards and challenges of working for a famous movie starlet. Although a few of the plot twists seem slightly far-fetched, and Sabrina and her friends are predictable stock characters, this was an enjoyable read with a surprising amount of substance beneath the froth.

Lily Miles has just finished her junior year of high school and is ready for her internship with the New York Museum of Modern Art over the summer before senior year. This will look great on her college application to Brown. As luck would have it, due to funding cuts her internship is a no go.

Lily's luck picks up when her dad's unlikely college alumni connections land her a job as personal assistant to teen movie star Sabrina Snow. Will this be Lily's dream job or a case of be careful what you wish for?

Sabrina's requests of Lily include having her sign Sabrina's name to photographs for her fan club, putting up with Sabrina's friends, and making runs to a secret store for her diet pills. Also thrown in the mix is Sabrina's cute California boyfriend, Bronson, who is visiting her in New York for the summer. Lily tries to be the best personal assistant ever with pressure to succeed from Sabrina and her dad. Bronson reminds her that she should lighten up and may see something in her that he doesn't see in Sabrina. Will they give in to their attraction?

I thought this was a light, quick read. Is it predictable? Yes. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the job will turn into a disaster when working for a movie star that never hears the word no. But it's still a fun read that I definitely recommend.

I won't lie, it's pretty cliché and predictable, but I don't see what else could've been written for a story like this.

Lily, the narrator of the novel, is telling the story as if she's writing her book, her own journal. There's nothing incredibly unique about Lily. She's exactly how you'd imagine a character in this kind of story to be, but I found it kind of endearing. One thing that bugged me- I use this word a lot, but the biggest cliché of the story was "Sabrina Snow." That's the fake name Lily gives us readers to hide the real identity of the starlet she interned for. I was really hoping Lizabeth would switch it up, and maybe write Sabrina to be a decent human being, but unfortunately not. Sabrina is exactly the same as any other fictitious female celebrity- snotty, rich, self-absorbed and demanding. She had her humane moments, but for the most part, she was a total hag.

Besides that, it was pretty entertaining. It's fast-paced, and ends pretty quickly, but it's not the kind of story that you'd want to be dragged out. It's not going on my favorite list, but I definitely don't regret checking it out!

Is the grass always greener on the other side? Well, in the book Girl of the Moment by Lizabeth Zindel, that is the main challenge for Lilly Miles, the main character in the book. When I looked at the cover of this book I thought, "This book will be good but not great" and I was right. It is full of details and interesting events like when Lilly gets the internship with Sabrina Snow a teen celebrity. That is when the drama and excitement start.
I defiantly think this book is for teen girls because there are some inappropriate parts that could be left out, but they help you understand the characters personalities. I think the reason that Lizabeth Zindel put this in the book is a way to bring real life to the book because that is the way that teens talk and that is why the book is to realistic. For example, "and guess what?" Evie squealed. "He asked me about you. And when I told him you weren't coming, I swear I saw the disappointment in his eyes." "Yeah, right," I said. It sounded too good to be true. They talk like this throughout the entire book.
I would defiantly recommend this book to any teenager or anybody who loves to read about gossip or drama. I am just not sure if this book was right for me.
