This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
A much younger reader, perhaps teenagers or young 20 somethings may enjoy this book. I suspect younger readers may be able to identify with Ms. Meili Cady's purported claims that she accepted ALL the claims of the "Samsung heiress" because they had one mutual friend. Perhaps it may even prove to be a positive message for young people to question new friendships.
Any additional comments?
In my experience persons who are attempting to embark a career as an Actor in Los Angeles California, are not so naive and innocent as Ms. Cady would have the reader believe that she was during this chapter of her life.
So in addition to questioning Ms. Cady's judgement, I could not help but wonder if this memoir is another avenue to the fame she herself seeks.
For example, I certainly understand why anyone would wish to make friends in a new city. But why, (in the age of the internet), she did not do a search on the woman who claimed to be an heiress of the Samsung dynasty, when she immediately felt those gut "red flags" that we experience, alerting us to be wary.
Moreover, Ms. Cady claims to have avoided the pitfalls of drugs throughout her entire youth, but is offered cocaine by a captivating stranger, and still doesn't know that this person is dangerous? Really?
The bottom line is this: I think this could have been an interesting and insightful memoir if Ms.Cady would have taken some responsibility to for actions. Instead, - I suppose as the title indicates - Ms. Cady claims that she was simply too stupid to realize that she was participating in not one, but several illegal behaviors.
Therefore, from my standpoint the book is a disappointment.

The audio was well read but the story line was boring. The whole time I couldn't believe how naive the main character was I couldn't relate to naivness, and quickly grew a disapproval of her character.
