Very interesting book about how one thing you do that seems innocent at the time, can come back and bite you and many others in the rear. The story line was very good, part of it was written normally, the other in a movie script format. If you're looking for something different to read. This is it!

Pretty good book. Read it in about a day. Its a little hard to swallow that the screenplay in the book would actually be considered as a movie because it is so cliche but the book means well. Its entertaining.

PRICE OF ADMISSION is a glimpse into the privileged Hollywood lifestyle that Jasmine Green was born into. Her father is the head of EggBrite, a huge Hollywood studio. He cares more about the success of his films than his children and he's constantly marrying women half his age. Sounds like an average Hollywood family, right?

But what celebrity family would be complete without a little bit of scandal?

The Green family has its fair share of secrets and drama. But they've managed to keep it all hush-hush, even from each other.

At least that was the case before Jasmine's diary--in the form of a screenplay--is purchased by her father's studio! Nobody even considers that Jasmine wrote the screenplay. They all assume that Austin, Jasmine's recently deceased ex-boyfriend (drug overdose, of course), penned the brilliant screenplay. Everybody in Hollywood is talking about it, and it's only a matter of time before somebody will discover that this screenplay isn't really a work of fiction. Jasmine is willing to do whatever it takes to stop her family's secrets from becoming the next big scandal to rock Hollywood. But Jasmine's job is going to be a lot harder than it sounds, especially with sneaky reporter Barry Wentworth doing his best to uncover the truth about the Greens.

For anyone who salivates over the latest celebrity gossip and can't put down their latest issue of US Weekly, PRICE OF ADMISSION is a must-read! Leslie Margolis writes a fast-paced story with jaw-dropping surprises that will keep you wanting more. This is a perfect light and playful novel to read on the plane to your Ixtapa beach resort. While some of the characters could use a little more depth, Margolis plays off her characters to create a lighthearted Hollywood satire.
