Goodeads: In this funny and touching novella, bestselling author Catherine McKenzie returns to the story of Amber Sheppard, It Girl and celebrity train wreck from McKenzie’s reader-favourite novel, Spin.
Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her — not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. It doesn’t help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off — a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.
Ope’s Opinion: Hearing Amber’s point of view in this book after just finishing Spin, made it feel like one big book. This was easy to get into because it really did feel like an extension of Spin.
Amber showed how hard it really must be, to be in Hollywood, be well known while trying not to make mistakes. I have always thought that life would be hard.
For such a small book, there was a lot in here.
Sounds like some good closure for the novel.
