Cherry Money Baby by John M. Cusick
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Hollywood glitz collides with workingclass aspirations in this satirical tale of an impulsive starlet and a sharp-witted small-town teen.
Cherry Kerrigan loves her simple life, her family’s tiny trailer, even working at Burrito Barn. Forget college — she’s marrying her sweetheart from next door. But here comes Ardelia Deen, a glamorous starlet who sweeps Cherry into a world of fast cars and penthouse parties. Now Cherry’s small-town life just seems so . . . small. When Ardelia drops a bomb of an offer — one involving a baby — Cherry knows her life will change forever, no matter what she decides. John M. Cusick focuses his signature wit on Hollywood royalty and the wide-eyed dreams of Small Town, U.S.A. in a novel about discovering who you are . . . and changing your mind.
Gaaah this book just sounds so GOOD. A girl who lives in a small town and is then swept into a big town with parties and rich cars? This book just screams ME. I want. So. Badly. I was already denied on Netgalley for this book, so I’ll actually have to wait until September 10, 2013 by Candlewick Press for this one. Sigh.
