This book has some entertaining characters. Our heroine, Stacey Blythe is the most entertaining, a typical self-obsessed non-celebrity. The author has perfectly captured the vacuous, low-wiitted voice of a desperate, grasping wannabe WAG. Yet Stacey is as lovable and as funny as the best Big Brother contestant - a wide-eyed, innocent girl with a world-view that's informed (and limited) by a diet of trashy celebrity magazines and watching daytime TV. Her inner voice provides many laugh-out-loud moments. Crucially though, you want her to succeed, you want her dreams to come true and that's what makes the book a real page-turner.
Stacey's story is told through a newspaper extracts of her auto-biography - the kind of article always seem to only tell half the story. This book presents the other half of the story via blog posts from a one of Stacey's (ex) friends, punctuated with 'Wicked Whisper' style gossips from a rival 'paper. The conflicting viewpoints keep the truth elusive to the end.
If you laughed out loud at Jordan's biography (who didn't, she's ridiculous) or chuckle your way through "The Only Way Is Essex" (who doesn't, they're even more ridiculous) then you'll love Stacey Blythe and the story she has to tell.
