This was a great coming of age novel set in the 1960s. After Heddy looses her scholarship at a prestigious school, she embarks on a new adventure as a babysitter for the rich, desperately wanting to be just like them, but it's obviously not all it's cracked up to be. If you like glamour, drama, and a soap opera type setting, this book does not disappoint.

I loved that she made friends with Gigi, the local celebrity, because Gigi seemed to be more down to earth than most and the one who taught her the biggest lesson, we all want a happy ending, but a man does not define who you are. Gigi was way ahead of her time, and for one night, she let Heddy knew what it felt like to be one of them.

It had a surprising twist at the end I definitely didn't see coming, but the author just left the story hanging. An epilogue would have been nice, but maybe the author will consider continuing this story. Thank you Netgalley.com for another fun read.
