Sixteen-year-old Molly Dix has just discovered that her biological father is Brick Berlin, world-famous movie star and red-carpet regular. Intrigued (and a little terrified) by her Hollywood lineage, Molly moves to Los Angeles and plunges headfirst into the deep of Beverly Hills celebrity life. Just as Molly thinks her life couldn't get any stranger, she meets Brooke Berlin, her gorgeous, spoiled half sister, who welcomes Molly to la-la land with a smothering dose of "sisterly love". But in this town, nothing is ever what it seems.
Set against a world of Redbull-fuelled stylists, tiny tanned girls, popped-collar guys, and Blackberry-wielding publicists, Spoiled is a sparkling debut from the writers behind the viciously funny celebrity blog GoFugYourself.com
Heather Cocks is a die-hard sports fan, a Leo, an ex-reporter, a Notre Dame grad, a dual citizen of the US and UK, a sandwich enthusiast, and a former producer for America's Next Top Model. Jessica Morgan is a Southern California native and UCLA alumna who has produced reality shows ranging from Growing Up Gotti to the docu-series 30 Days. She collects shoes, books, and unpaid parking tickets. Both ladies live in Los Angeles and watch almost everything on the CW.
Together, Heather and Jessica skewer celebrity fashion crimes on their popular blog Go Fug Yourself, which draws millions of monthly readers and made Entertainment Weekly's Must List. Their dispatches from the front rows are routinely the most-read pieces on New York magazine's website during Fashion Week. This is their first novel for young adults.

Yes if they enjoyed YA beach reads.
The closest thing I can think of is a movie...which this book also references. Mean girls with a Cinderella like twist. Maybe the "Oh My GODS" series without the supernatural aspect.
I haven't but she did a great job.
The fact that the girls really have no parents and figure out they need each other should be moving; and I guess it is to a point but the book is meant to be tongue in cheek funny and light so nothing is too moving.
A fun read leaving a possibility for a sequel. I hope they do one.
