3.0 out of 5 stars OK-ish read with some good moments, 3 July 2014
This review is from: Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend (Paperback)
Sophie Chesterton tells us her story in her own words; she is a spoilt little rich girl who is totally indulged by her wealthy father in terms of parties, jewellery, handbags, clothes and anything she wants. Until the day her boyfriend dumps her for her best friend and her father dies; Sophie’s perfect world comes crashing down around her perfect little ears. When the terms of her father’s will is revealed Sophie finds there is no money left, and a clause in the will dictates that Sophie has to go out in the world with nothing, find somewhere to live and support herself. She is literally kicked out by her stepmother and this is where it became unrealistic. I was getting annoyed with the book by this point, and felt it was a bit juvenile, and wasn’t expecting much as I really didn’t like Operation Sunshine. It did pick up though as we follow Sophie’s journey as she slums it. She moves into a complete dive with a group of students and cleans the place instead of paying rent. She takes a low-paid job photographing page three models. She finds out who her real friends are and discovers a lot about herself. I wasn’t convinced by the relationship side of things though and wasn’t sure where Jenny was leading us; not to the actual ending, I didn’t think! It was an OK read and had some very good moments but not a classic for me.
