Review Spin by Catherine McKenzie

SpinSpin by Catherine McKenzie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Blurb from NetGalley

Kate Sandford has just gotten an interview at her favorite music magazine, The Line. It's the chance of a lifetime. So what does she do? Goes out to celebrate-and shows up still drunk at the interview at 9am. No surprise, she doesn't get the job, but the folks at the media company think she might be perfect for another assignment for their gossip rag. Kate is to follow a young female celebrity into rehab and get the inside story. If she can get the rehab scoop (and complete the 30-day program without getting kicked out), they'll reconsider her for the job at The Line.

Kate takes the job. But things get complicated when real friendships develop, a cute celebrity handler named Henry gets involved, and Kate begins to realize she may be in rehab for a reason.

My Review

Kate is almost at 30 when she gets her break break into the job she always wanted, an interview for her fav music Magazine. However Kate has always been a girl who like to celebrate and whats one glass the day before her birthday and big interview. One glass turns into many and Kate wakes up half cut, hungover and running close to late for her interview. Here is the start of a new stage in her life. In order to try and save the job she has to go into rehab and get the low down on the young and popular celebrity Amber.

What follows is a story about how far one girl will go to get what she wants and the path of self discovery she unexpectedly falls upon trying to get there. I really enjoyed this book, it is very easy to follow and so well written you could be reading about people you know as the characters are so well written. The relationships formed and unexpected struggles she faces really pull you in, I read this book in one sitting and would recommend it to anyone who fancys a read that doesn't make you think too hard but keeps you engrossed page after page.

This is my first time reading this author but would certainly read more, I like her style of writing so it's a 4/5 for me.

Thank you to HarperCollins for sending me this book to review and introducing me to a new author. Publication date for this book is 02/01/2012.
