Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Bruce Wagner is also a PEN/Faulkner Award finalist and a notable contributor to the New Yorker and Vanity Fair. With Dead Stars, Wagner delivers uproarious and sharply critical views on the sex- and money-obsessed world of Hollywood through the story of Telma, a 13-year-old girl who’s also the world’s youngest breast cancer survivor. A regular at pink-tie charity events and private lunches, Telma has come to enjoy her fame—so she’s not pleased to learn another young girl is about to break her record.

kind of funny, but mostly boring

basically the author is just ranting. it's kind of funny, but there is nothing to tie it together.

Make sure you know what you're getting into!

As other readers have said, this book is NOT for everyone. HEAVY focus on popular culture, dripping with sickly sweet sex, as described by adolescence. I understand that's what the author was shooting for... but it made me feel dirty and annoyed.
Had hoped it would be more like what the screenplay/adaptation has been described as, but not so much.
