Pagan Jones went from America's sweetheart to fallen angel in one fateful night in 1960: the night a car accident killed her whole family. Pagan was behind the wheel and driving drunk. Nine months later she's stuck in the Lighthouse Reformatory for Wayward Girls and tortured by her guilt - not to mention the sadistic Miss Edwards, who takes special delight in humiliating the once-great Pagan Jones. But all of that is about to change.
Pagan's old agent shows up with a mysterious studio executive, Devin Black, and an offer. Pagan will be released from juvenile detention if she accepts a juicy role in a comedy directed by award-winning director Bennie Wexler. The shoot starts in West Berlin in just three days. If Pagan's going to do it, she has to decide fast - and she has to agree to a court-appointed "guardian", the handsome yet infuriating Devin, who's too young, too smooth, too sophisticated to be some studio flack. The offer's too good to be true, Berlin's in turmoil, and Devin Black knows way too much about her - there's definitely something fishy going on. But if anyone can take on a divided city, a scheming guardian, and the criticism of a world that once adored her, it's the notorious Pagan Jones. What could go wrong?

Fun, Clever and Informative!
Probably not; I don't often repeat a book I have listened to already unless I have forgotten something.
I appreciated how well-crafted the story was. It was written for a much younger audience but was enjoyable for an older mystery lover that enjoys historical fiction and has a penchant for all things "Old Hollywood". I also enjoyed the historical context and lessons.
She was okay; she did not make or break the experience for me.
I have a short attention span so I am rarely able to sit and do anything in one sitting.
I enjoyed all the twists and turns of the plot and how the were woven in with the backdrop of the Berlin Wall. The story is well-written and thoroughly enjoyable.
