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? Pamela Anderson's debut novel Star is funny, sexy, and utterly compelling--a must read for chick lit fans, subscribers to US Weekly, and anyone with an ounce of curiosity about Hollywood. Still not convinced? Here are three reasons to read Star: it offers a gossipy glimpse into the extravagant lives of the rich and shameless; it’s funny--filled with laugh-out-loud memorable moments; and most surprising, it’s got a lot of heart--don't be surprised if you find yourself falling for this sweet, naïve, and lovable heroine.
Anyone remotely familiar with Anderson's life will recognize the playfully disguised true story behind Star Wood Leigh's tale--how a tight t-shirt and a football game led to her appearance in Mann Magazine, an accidental audition landed her a spot on the home improvement send-up Hammer Time, and a show called Lifeguards, Inc confirmed her arrival on the Hollywood scene. Anderson’s book is delightful--a playful blend of fact and fiction that’s a treat to read. The sex kitten with a heart of gold may be a familiar story, but Star offers what even the best chick lit and romance novels cannot--authenticity. Star is a novelization of Pamela Anderson’s life, and while it’s debatable what’s fact and what’s fiction (you'll never look at the Hollywood sign the same way again), the point is that it all could have happened to her. Star ends with a bit of a romantic cliffhanger, but anxious readers shouldn't fret--Anderson is hard at work on Star’s sequel, a "great exciting romance" featuring the face-licking, impish Jimi Deed. --Daphne DurhamAbout the Author :
