...Starstruck, By Rachel Shukert. The first installment of Rachel Shukert's new young adult novel series revolves around a group of girls in the studio system during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Now, I know what you're thinking: a book written for and about teenage girls? Calm down and stop pretending like you don't have a favorite member of One Direction. This book is the closest thing to Valley of the Dolls since the final season of The Anna Nicole Show. It is a juicy, campy, brilliantly written page-turner, perfect to read this summer with a couple of your favorite pills.
