Too many things going on that makes the plot rather unbelievable. I didn't warm up to the main character, Fern. Carole Matthews was probably trying to make her the poor, hardworking, down on her luck type, but in the process turned her into a somewhat selfish, unreliable, dizzy, without-me-my-family-doesn't-function type that suddenly has amazing talent and becomes a superstar despite running out on auditions and insulting agents. I had VERY hard time finishing the book. It's a shame because I have enjoyed other books by Carole Matthews, too bad this one was so discombobulated.

Good story and her writing is witty at times which carries you through to the end.
