[Book Review + Giveaway] Spun by Catherine McKenzie

In this funny and touching novella, bestselling author Catherine McKenzie returns to the story of Amber Sheppard, It Girl and celebrity train wreck from McKenzie’s reader-favourite novel, Spin.

Life has been rough for starlet Amber since leaving rehab. She’s been two years sober, but no one seems to believe her -- not the gossip media, not casting agents, and most certainly not her spotlight-loving parents. With her friendships ruined by betrayal and her career at a standstill, Amber’s just trying to get her life back on track. It doesn’t help that her former love, movie star Connor Parks, keeps trying to draw Amber back in, not just to their relationship but to his hard-partying ways. One fateful night, Amber breaks down and agrees to join him on board his private jet as it readies for take-off -- a decision that will change her life forever and expose her to a whole new level of scrutiny and heartbreak.

I'm so glad that Catherine wrote this novella! Ever since reading Spin, I was curious about the side characters and Amber was one of my favorite ones. Reading this novella from her point of view was really intriguing and I loved her attitude about everything. Having cameras in your face your whole life can be somewhat annoying and she was a very strong woman. Even after tragedy with Connor, she was able to face everything that came her way.

I love Catherine's writing! It was light, fun, and I really wish that this would have been a longer novel. But I'm excited to read more of her books because she is just plain awesome!
