Addison seemed to have everything she could possibly want but what went wrong?
Addison is the daughter of Turkish immigrant parents. She was born Ada Sinmic Ghee in a semi-permanent refugee camp in Turkey. While going through an emigration line, a bureaucrat asked her name. He ended up dividing the syllables wrong and used creative spelling to come up with Addison McGhee. In addition to a new name, she also ended up with a ticket to America. From the age of two, she grew up in Nebraska. Addison then heads for L.A. where she lands a job as a co-host with a popular morning show.
Now everything is starting to go downhill and could not get much worse for Addison. Addison forgot to do one important thing. She never became a citizen. She is now in prison on felony charges and awaiting deportation. Her agent did not seem to mind because this was making her more famous.
How could this have ended up in such a mess? Is it due to the fact that the First Lady has some kind of agenda? After all, a photo was taken of the President with Addison on his lap! Then there is the time she through exercise equipment at her husband on live TV.
Is Addison deported back to a country she does not really know?
The author does an excellent job of creating the atmosphere for this story as the reader is taken from the hard times the parents faced in Turkey to the good times of Addison's success. The reader will not have a difficult time trying to visualize Addison in their mind. As I read through this book, it reminded me of some of the escapades that quite a few celebrities are going through today! The reader will enjoy the character of Addison because she seems very real and will make you laugh many times. This is an excellent chicklit book and one that I highly recommend.
