A classic of the genre, to be sure. But more than that, a book both formative and prescriptive. I read this as a young teen, and I look back now on the turning of the final page as the moment when my adulthood was forged from the ashes of my youth. My heart cried out for young, tortured Drew; I wrote her a letter (sadly, never sent) that said, in effect: I will love you. I will remain at your side, tho' the wastrel, treacherous Hollywood wolves may lie in wait just outside your door. Allow me the honor of caring about you.
And so this book, above all others, taught me concern for celebrities. And hasn't life been the sweeter for it!
