How did Lucky Santangelo become the kick-ass woman she is today? Only Jackie Collins can tell...

Lucky Saint is a fifteen-year-old wild child who discovered her mother's murdered body floating in the family swimming pool when she was only five years old. She is the daughter of the notorious Gino, who's kept her cloistered in their Bel Air mansion ever since. But she's about to discover the world: boys, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. And no one can stop her now...

CONFESSIONS OF A WILD CHILD

Lucky navigates her teen years-from first kisses and brushes with famous older men to attending boarding school and adventuring through exotic Greek islands-as Gino, a powerful Vegas hotel owner, struggles to control her. Meanwhile, her brother, Dario, is too scared to tell Gino that he's gay. But fearless Lucky will not be held back by her father...or anyone else. Soon she has no choice but to strike out on her own path-one that will lead her to become the powerful and charismatic woman that she was destined to be...

This novel takes readers back to the beginning of Lucky Santagelo's life as she recovers from her mother's brutal murder and how she became a wild child as well as blackmail. READ THIS BOOK!!!!!

This is BACKGROUND for the usual character so it does read a bit like teenlit. Nevertheles it is a fast read and provides some interesting insight into the charachter of Lucky, whose stories are more geared to adult escape literature. Poor little rich girl, not as bad a girl as some of her friends but bad enought to make the readers laugh and cheer her on. You know it is fictions because she is still a virgin when she walks down the isle.

Have to say I was anxiously awaiting the release of this book and was extremely disappointed. It seems that Collins felt she had to write another "Lucky Santangelo" story and decided to fill in the gaps in her teenage years - 15 to 16. Honestly, I got enough info on this period in Lucky's life in the flashbacks from previous stories that this seemed like fluff. I guess I would rather Collins took the point of view of Lucky's daughter (a new topic) rather than going back and adding filler to an area the had already been touched on. The good thing--very easy read that took a day to finish the story. Only 3 of 10 for me on this one.

I thought this book was for adults, but it's more of a teenager's mind set. I usually like Jackie Collin's books but unfortunately, not this one.
