Publisher's Summary

Ella Warren loves her job working for celebrity news magazine The Life as an undercover reporter. Her evenings are spent using her alias to discreetly attend red carpet events, nightclubs, and Hollywood hotspots like the fabulous Chateau Marmont, where her eyes are always peeled for the next big celebrity story.

When Ella's new Devil Wears Prada-type boss starts a not-so-friendly competition among the reporters to find an exclusive story or be fired, the stakes are higher than ever. But is being in Hollywood's elite inner circle worth jeopardizing her friendship with budding actress Holiday Hall and her relationships with her boyfriend and her family? As the competition grows fiercer, her life becomes intertwined in a public scandal that may cost her everything.

A juicy, bighearted audiobook about a young woman who loses herself in a fast-paced, glamorous world where finding your authentic self isn't easy.

What the Critics Say

"I had so much fun with this hysterical novel about Hollywood, and I can almost guess who the stars (in disguise) are! Abby Stern shows how Los Angeles is as dangerous as Rikers Island, yet how celebrities truly can be as superficial as Kardashians and glamorous as magic, all at once." (Lucy Sykes, author of Fitness Junkie and The Knockoff)

    Story
    "Hollywood Glitz and Gossip"

    This is a big change from my usual listening fare. I needed something for pure escapism, and this qualifies perfectly. It's fluffy but not quite trashy, entertaining without being too silly, and just a fun listen. Yes, the characters are rather unrealistic and shallow, and the plot has a lot of predictable episodes. The narration seemed way over the top initially, but I actually think it worked for this story of Hollywood glitz, gossip, and maliciousness.

    Story
    "I WANT MORE!"

    The worst thing about this book is that it had to end!! This is "The Devil Wears Prada" for 2017. So cool that the writer actually had this job. This book was sweet, funny, relatable and quenched the thirst for Hollywood gossip that so many of us have.
    Great summer read with a great narrator!

    Story
    "It's a summer listen."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Maybe it would be less annoying in print, but the long descriptive names of the celebrities became very tiresome to listen too.


    Was According to a Source worth the listening time?

    I listen to make my commute more enjoyable. This was a fun summer listen. It was what I expected so I did enjoy it.
