Kiss My Book / Jamie Michaels

Summary - Ruby Crane is a rising star. At 15, she sold her first book, got a movie deal, scored the hottest guy in school, and became the most popular student at Frasier High. Now, as a soon-to-be junior and published author, she's ready to make waves in New York's literary world. But every star falls back to earth one day.

Ruby's accused of plagiarism - on national television. And the worst part is that the proof of her literary lies is indisputable.Her friends won't return her phone calls. Her boyfriend's gone AWOL. The media vultures are flying low, and they want answers. So Ruby does what any self-respecting headline would do. She disappears. And that's when her story really begins.

Review - You know how sometimes someone can be speechless because they are so overwhelmed by the artistry of a painting or an author's words? This isn't the case with this book. I am speechless because I am very unsure as to how this got published in the first place.

This novel features a storyline about a girl who gets caught out having plagarised another author's work. I was never going to feel sorry for this protagonist. I feel that plagarism might have been a better option than this "original" dreck. If this book were a movie, it would feature a green screen with paper dolls before it. That's the amount of character development and detail you get.

Anything positive? I somehow managed to finish reading it and you can all benefit from my advice to avoid it like the plague.

And I am done.
