One of those hideous books where the mother dies

Aside from having one of the worst titles ever, this book wasn't too bad. It tells the story of a young 15 year old girl who goes to live with her famous movie star father after the death of her mother. The book is a combination of free verse prose and e-mails written by Ruby to her best friend and boyfriend back home. Ruby also sends e-mails to her mother.

This book wasn't too bad, the storyline was a little too over the top for me. C'mon, movie star father, lots of famous names also dropped into the text. I realy did not like the neat and tidy way the book resolved itself.
