In this funny and touching novella, bestselling author Catherine McKenzie returns to the story of Amber Sheppard, It Girl and celebrity train wreck from McKenzie’s reader-favourite novel, Spin.
Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her -- not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. It doesn’t help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off -- a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.

I really liked Spin. In fact, I couldn't wait to read more. The Spun comes out, this lil novella. I thought it would be about Kate, but it wasn't. This time you got a glimpse into the life of a celebrity. And not just any celebrity either. One that has lots to prove and the world to prove it to. Kudos to Amber for getting the point across and to Catherine for the short, yet, powerful story.
The only sad part for me was the ending. I really hope another story comes from this. Give us more about Olivia and the baby now, pretty please?
Great writing! It feels so real to read it. You can actually imagine this stuff happening. BAH! It probably is!
If you haven't read any of Catherine's books, I really don't know what you are waiting for.
