“The latest book I read was a novel written by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan titled Spoiled. Brooke Berlin, a main character introduced in the beginning of the novel, is the daughter of the well profound Hollywood actor, Brick Berlin. With her stardom beginning her new career as an actress herself, she is a snotty teenager who will let nothing pass in her way. Molly Dix, another main character introduced later on in the novel, is a 16-year old teenager who lives in the outskirts of Indiana. With the tragic passing death of her mother, Laurel, on her mother’s death bed, confesses that Molly is the daughter of Brick Berlin. Stunned with enthusiasm, Laurel’s last few words speak of Molly moving in with her real father, Brick. Boarding the plane, Molly takes all of her belongings and leaves her grandparents, her good friend Charmaine, and her boyfriend, Danny, back at home as she travels 20,000 miles across the country to reach Los Angeles. As soon as Molly steps out of the airplane of first class, she is blown away by the paparazzi that stands in her way; the clearing to where she spots her father in the near distance. Molly is extremely thrilled to become a new family member, while on the other hand, Brooke is concerned Molly has taken all the fame away from her being the new kid in the Berlin household. The peace between Brooke and Molly has been not clearly subsided; with the many differences Brooke and Molly both share. Brooke is a popular, preppy girl that attends a rich, boarding school while on the other hand Molly is a hometown, Indiana Girl who wears sweatshirts and sneakers as an everyday outfit. Being two opposites themselves, Molly and Brooke go through a transformation as they learn more about themselves through each other. But, just as any sister relationship goes, there are also many rivalries that will be faced during their experience.
After reading this book for the first time, and actually the first book in the entire series, I do compliment that I enjoyed reading the book because it was very relatable to the many rivalries I have had with my two siblings, but I felt as though the reading level was too low for me, and also the use of vocabulary was very minimal. In all means, the book was a good read, however I think it was too easy of a reading level for me because it was easily interpreted and comprehendible, two of the things I take into play when choosing a book. If you are the kind of reader that enjoys easy but long reads, feel free to read this book! I would recommend this book for a newcomer into the Middle School, because of the minimal comprehension it took to interpret the book and because of the little description the author’s incorporated into the read. I felt like a fourth-grader could have read this book!

“Spoiled was a fun read, definately, and I found the characters and situations really enjoyable to hear about. I'd recommend it, and re-read it, and I found the second book at a very cheap price, so that's on my 'To Read' list. I thought this book was a unique idea, and it's one of those easy yet fun reads that you can use to pass the time.”Amy wrote this review Thursday, January 3, 2013.

“Some of the most delightfully fresh writing I have encountered in years. The writing itself is different and interesting, even though the storyline was fairly predictable. The characters are quirky and interesting in all the right ways, and it's a quick and entertaining read. ”Alysse Ashley wrote this review Saturday, June 23, 2012.

“Typical Hollywood backstabbing drama that you can find in any Lauren Conrad book, any Zoey Dean book. It was just a few percent less superficial, but just as cliche as the rest. Something about it made it a three star from one or two.”Tulsi P wrote this review Friday, June 22, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
