Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to get what you wanted? That's the question author Catherine McKenzie addresses in Spin - a delectable debut novel that takes listeners into the connected worlds of pop culture, tabloid journalism, and celebrity rehab. The story of a newbie undercover gossip reporter who follows a troubled starlet into a rehab clinic intending to dig up all the dirt she possibly can, Spin is smart, hip, utterly engaging contemporary fiction in the vein of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin.


What the Critics Say

"Imagine if Bridget Jones fell into a million little pieces, flew over the cuckoo's nest, and befriended Lindsay Lohan along the way, and you are beginning to grasp the literary roller coaster ride that is Catherine McKenzie's Spin." (Leah McLaren, author of The Continuity Girl)

Balancing Serious Topic With Humor-Very Good

Katie is desperate for a job reporting, well anything. She is offered her DREAM job, she must follow a star into rehab for the ultimate story, tell all.

This reminded me so much of Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes, which I adore – the story and the author. A chic lit book that balances serious issues and comic relief. I really enjoyed it.

It could've used a little more editing because I felt it was a bit long. There were a few places that felt like we were treading water and the story didn't really progress, that would be my only criticism. (The author had 20 minutes of shout outs AFTER the story. I'd be the same!)

Spin was a lot of fun. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review. I would recommend it to my friends who enjoy Sophia Kinsella & Marian Keyes.

Kristi Burns does a bang up job as Katie, as well as the plethora of characters we meet along the way. Well done.

Notes: I cannot think of anything to warn you about.

- DK "No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!"

Horrible narration

I returned the book mainly cause of the narrator. The lack of modulations and the lack of differentiations adapting to the story was totally amiss. For a book I would have otherwise finished returning, I couldn't go beyond 2 chapters.
