Booklist Review

Mlynowski's third novel follows Sunny Langstein to New York, where she's relocated to live with her boyfriend, Steve. Without any real prospects of employment, Sunny accepts an offer from her father's much younger girlfriend to audition for the new reality television show, Party Girls. Sunny wins the part and is whisked off for a makeover (her brown hair becomes black) and a fashionable name change (she becomes Sunny Lang ). Sunny's costars are Erin, a wild slut; Brittany, a well-endowed lush; and Michelle, a tall, cool redhead who might be a potential friend. Party Girls premieres to impressive numbers, but as the show goes on, Sunny begins to buy into the hype: the recognition, the handsome men at the bars, the glamorous life. Then her relationship with Steve is put in jeopardy when Party Girls turns into a competition with the prize being the chance to host Party Girls II in L.A. A fun and telling look at the world of reality TV and the lure of fame. --Kristine Huntley Copyright 2003 Booklist
