Book Review - Million Dollar Mates

Jess Hall's dad is the new general manager at Porchester Park, and is moving Jess, her brother and pet cat into a staff apartment there. Jess is dreading the move, until she learns the apartments are strictly A-list only and soon to be populated by actors, musicians, models and millionaires...But fraternising with the stars isn't all it's cracked up to be, and soon Jess is wishing for a return to real-life - but can she admit to her friends that the gilded cage isn't quite as golden as she'd anticipated?

My Review
I love Cathy Hopkins books, i read all of the Mates, Dates series last year, and couldn't wait to read her new book. I read this book in a couple of hours and really enjoyed it. 
Jess moves with her brother and cat to go and live with her dad who has just got a job in a brand new apartment complex, but this is bigger and better than you could ever imagine, it is the place for celebrities and A-Listers, and has everything you could ever want, swimming pools, spa's you name it, but life isn't all it's cracked up to be. Will Jess ever adapt to her new life among the stars, will she ever belong?
I really got into this book, the characters were well written and came alive on the page. The story was gripping and had moments of laughter and tears, I'm looking forward to the next one in the series. I loved Dave the cat, i could picture him easily and wanted to grab him for a hug! Jess is very much your typical teen but not in a bad way, i could understand a lot of her struggles and liked her craziness with her mates. 
Well written and very interesting story, give me more please.

My Rating
i would give this book 8/10 well worth reading.
