I read this book sooooo many times when I was younger, and now that I’m older and I don’t read it a lot, I’m gonna share it with you! (This is a girl book, sorry guys!)

The book is about a girl, who’s parents are ‘uber-famous’. She really wants to make friends, but all of her ‘friends’ are only hanging around with her cause of her parents. (WHICH IS SOOOOOOO MEAN!!!) So, she decides she is going to go to a different school…across the country.

I seriously loved this book sooooooooo much!!! I used to read and re-read, and re-re-read it! This is a great book for younger girls! Last I checked there is no ‘Bleh!’ stuff or ‘Bad’ stuff in it. However… she does fall in love with this kid, and blah blah-blah blah!!!! (Young Love. Isn’t horrible, 😉 )

Over all, I believe many young girls would really like this book and other books by the author too. I hope this review was helpful! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • Very kid-friendly!
  • Funny and very enjoyable.


  • Not really a teen book.

When Ruby flees Hollywood to escape the fame of her parents, she tells a lie that could ruin the life she loves at her new boarding school in this M!X novel about courage, families, and finding your own spotlight.

Ruby Miller has it made. As the only child of model-turned-TV-host Celestine Cruz and pro-baseball star Zack Miller, she has everything a twelve-year-old girl could want. Well, except for real friends.

After a disastrous birthday party where she discovers her supposed BFFs are only friends with her because her parents are uber-famous, she finds a place as far from fake and phony Hollywood as she can get: a boarding school in Camden, Maine. In her desperation to distance herself from her star-studded parents and the paparazzi who trail them, Ruby tells her new friends that she’s an orphan. She feels awful about lying, but once she starts, it’s hard to come clean. Plus, now that nobody’s comparing her to her perfect parents, Ruby can finally let her own talents as a dress designer take center stage.
