Yes, I am pulling an Oprah here and recommending a book! Jennifer Weiner (she wrote "In Her Shoes" which was made into a movie with Cameron Diaz) has a new book called "The Next Best Thing" that is just a really satisfying read! I love Jennifer's books because the main characters are flawed...like real people! Not skinny, perfect, beautiful, etc. etc..
"The Next Best Thing" is really a fictionalized behind-the-scenes look at what it is like to write and produce a television show in Hollywood. It is funny, honest, and kinda sad. I can say this without giving anything away...it will make you see fame, beauty and celebrity differently. Instead of envy, you will begin to feel SOOOO much better about your own life! But don't worry, there is plenty of "escape" in this novel, and isn't that what we want from a good read?
