TV star Kaitlin Burke is exhausted by her busy celebrity lifestyle and her constant feuding with jealous costar Sky. Kaitlin decides she’s had enough and wants a break. So she and her non-famous best friend, Liz, cook up a plan for her to attend Liz’s high school disguised as an English exchange student. No one is supposed to know, and Kaitlin’s plan is going great until her constant lying starts to get to her. Her new friends are great, but will they understand why she’s lying? And what will Austin, a potential crush, think? He’s got a poster of Kaitlin on his bedroom wall! And worst of all, Sky seems to suspect something and would love to expose Kaitlin’s secret and ruin her Hollywood career. This book was a great combination of romance, celebrity life, and regular-girl problems. If you’ve ever wanted to be famous, or ever wanted to be someone completely different than who you are, you will love Secrets of My Hollywood Life!
