Skylar Welshman is a 7th grader who wants to be cool and is a huge fan of famous TV star, Ruby Rivera.  She sneaks into her movie set where she and the actress wish to have each other’s life...their wish actually comes true!

I really liked this book because it is a funny and happy book about two girls. I would recommend this book to 10-13 year olds. I like how the book inspires people that being yourself isn’t too bad. People who like books with two people

I recommend this to teachers and mentors everywhere, or for anyone looking for inspiration in their own learning and interpersonal growth. Tim Gunn is a delight to listen to and read by the author himself.

I suppose I should start by admitting that before I picked up this book I had no idea who Kathy Griffin is. And, having given a celebrity tell-all or two a try I am not usually drawn to them. In fact, I avoid them. Official Book Selection, however, is well worth making an exception for. I got hooked while reading the captions of the photos and belly-laughing in the relative quiet of the public library. I couldn’t put it down. Luckily, the audio was there and Griffin’s reading makes the book that much more enjoyable. Being a professional comedian lends itself to writing and reading an
