Hancock Park by Isabel Kaplan

Becky Miller lives in the best neighborhood, goes to school with the children of movie stars, and has her psychiatrist on speed dial. She may live in the City of Angels, but this sixteen-year-old's life is far from perfect.
By day, Becky navigates the halls of one of L.A.'s most elite schools, where the mean girls are a special breed of mean, and at night, she deals with sparring parents, a grandmother who is man-crazy, and a younger brother, Jack, who answers only to J-zizzy. As Becky's life comes crashing down around her, she struggles to put it back together and learn to grow up while trying to stay sane.
Isabel Kaplan dishes the dirt on the children of Hollywood's elite—from Spago delivered to campus at lunch and shrinks who dole out psychotropic drugs as though they're candy to parent-free parties at the Four Seasons—the lives of Becky and her creator, Isabel Kaplan, are like no other, and yet strangely, just like everyone's.

I thought this book was ok. I didn't really like Becky she complained a lot and was always talking about all these different doctors she had to go to and all the meds she was taking for all these weird disorders she had.

The book was kinda typical I have no friends,my best friend moved away, and parents getting a divorve book. And then she becomes best friends with the popular group and follows them and does some naughty things. And then she the boyfriend who she thought was great and ended up being hoorible. So I didn't really like the plot it was good but not really all that good.

Overall I kinda liked the book but not really

3 out of 5
