Book #1 in the Star Wood Leigh series:

Book Description:


Like many twenty-one year olds, Star Wood Leigh works two jobs to make ends meet: the day shift at Talon's Nail and Tan Spa, and the night shift at Mother Pearl's Steak & Oyster Emporium. The archetypal tomboy, at home in jeans and a T-shirt, Star is guileless and beguiling, a fresh-faced beauty who knows that too much of a good thing is wonderful. A loving daughter, a good friend and a faithful girlfriend, this Florida girl gets more than her fair share of sun and fun. And then an innocent evening at a football game sets off a chain of life-altering events. One minute Star is cleaning the tanning beds at Talon's, and the next she's being primped and prodded in preparation for the front cover of a national magazine... Playful, bawdy and curl-your-toes sexy, STAR is an insider's look at a world of inflated egos and inflated bodies. Going far beyond the cliched air-kisses and casting couches of Hollywood, STAR shows what really happens when A-list meets D-cup, when girl becomes goddess.

Who knew that Pamela Anderson could write a book?! There's also a sequel called Star Struck (2005). I found this book at a library sale in Woodstock, Georgia for 50 cents. Inside the book's cover is a barely covered Pamela Anderson. I was just too curious to read this. Who knows maybe she's smarter than she appears.

My Review: It was entertaining. Not the greatest book I've ever read, but not the worst, either. It seems after consulting wikipedia there are quite a few similarities between Star and Pamela. Both have alcoholic fathers, both came to Hollywood to pose in a famous men's magazine, both worked in TV shows, one called Hammer Time and another set on the beach. There were a lot of men she dated. Not sure if any of them are based on real guys. All the names are changed to protect the innocent, I suppose.

Since this is a Bookcrossing book, I'm going to remove the dust jacket. It's semi pornographic and though I'm not a prude if it's left in the wild someday I don't want a child to find it. It's the way of the world, I suppose. Not sure where this book goes next.

This one wasn't chosen, so I'm taking it out of the VBB.
