This book is easily one of my favourite books. I stumbled upon this book by browsing the shelving cart at the library and I'm so happy that I picked it up.

This is a story about Kate, a woman who really knows how to party it up, who shows up drunk to an interview to her dream job. Needless to say, she didn't get the job. She does, however, get offered an alternate job with the promise of scoring her dream job upon successful delivery of an article about a celebrity's stay in rehab. All Kate has to do is attend rehab for thirty days and get the dirt on this celebrity. Sounds easy right?

Well, I'll leave it up to you to read the book and find out for yourself.

Why I liked this book: I loved this book! The main character, Kate Stanford, is easily relatable. The book is narrated by her and you do feel like you are apart of her journey. I had a hard time putting this book down and I will be recommending this one to everyone.

Katie Sandford has just gotten an interview at her favourite music magazine, The Line. It's the chance of a lifetime. So what does she do? Goes out to celebrate -- and shows up still drunk at the interview. No surprise, she doesn't get the job, but the folks at The Line think she might be perfect for another assignment for their sister gossip rag. All Katie has to do is follow It Girl Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop (and complete the 30-day program without getting kicked out), they'll reconsider her for the job at The Line.

Katie takes the job. But things get complicated when real friendships develop, a cute celebrity handler named Henry gets involved, and Katie begins to realize she may be in rehab for a reason. Katie has to make a decision -- is publishing the article worth everything she has to lose?
