About the Book:

Hollywood Is like High School with Money is a novel based in part on Zoey Dean's experiences as an assistant in Hollywood after college.

Hollywood is Like High School With Money is the tale of Taylor Henning, a 24-year old graduate who has just landed her dream job as an assistant at a major movie studio. But when her catty coworkers trick her into almost getting fired, she realizes that the old saying "Hollywood is like high school with money" just may be true. The thing is, Taylor wasn't exactly a social butterfly in high school – how is she supposed to do any better the second time around?

That's when she meets her boss's popular sixteen-year-old daughter Quinn, and has an epiphany: maybe this teenager can teach her how to use her queen bee tactics to succeed in the Hollywood popularity contest. Quinn comes up with a plan to teach Taylor one lesson a week – everything from "Fake it 'til you make it" to "It's never your fault" – and soon Taylor finds herself winning the war against rival assistant Kylie. Until, that is, she's directed to steal Kylie's boyfriend, and something happens that's not in the game plan: Taylor falls for the guy. Now she must do the impossible – harness her inner mean girl while staying true to herself.

What people say:

"Great fun." — New York Daily News

"The New York Times bestselling author of The A-List series entertains with the tale of a 24-year-old second assistant (yes, an assistant to an assistant) in the movie industry who learns how to fake it 'til she makes it in Hollywood...all under the tutelage of the 16-year-old daughter of her boss. Definite guilty pleasure with plenty of US Weekly-esque references to celebrity culture and designer name dropping." — Philadelphia Examiner

"A fun and frothy summer read for anyone with an interest in the behind-the-scenes workings of Hollywood." — Booklist

"Dean knows her way around plotting and a good literary scandal (or two). Parlaying that ability into the chick lit genre, she succeeds in telling a Mean Girls story... a lot of fun." — Romantic Times Book Reviews
