Her mother is thrilled, but Katie's father wants to deliver an ultimatumhe doesn't like what her character represents, or that it's his daughter adopting such seductive postures before millions of viewers. Katie almost lands on a casting couch and has a rift with her leading man, Mitch, who thinks she'll use anyone or anything to get to the top. These incidents give the book a soap opera-like incredibility. A Manhattan backdrop and behind-the-scenes action give this some glossbut, like soapslittle substance. Ages 10-up. (October)
