Aspiring actress Meili Cady left small-town Washington State for the glamorous lure of Los Angeles. Young and alone, she was struggling to make her big break. Then she met Lisette Lee. Calling herself the "Korean Paris Hilton," Lisette claimed she was a model and a Korean pop star, lived in a $1.2 million dollar apartment in West Hollywood, owned a fleet of luxury cars, and flitted from one red-carpet event to the next. The connection was instant. Meili was enchanted by her friend's extravagant lifestyle, while Lee claimed Meili was the real thing in a town full of phonies. Soon, the financially strapped Meili became her friend's personal assistant--and found herself sucked into an audacious criminal enterprise. But when Meili finally realized what she was a part of it was too late--she was in too deep, caught in a terrifying relationship with a manipulative and abrasive con artist smuggling millions of dollars of pot into the Midwest.

The start of the book was kind of boring and I almost wasn’t going to keep reading it. But it started to get interesting about half way through and progressively built interest from there to the end. Good book, push through the beginning

Meili Cady was kept in the dark about most of the details of the drug smuggling operations that she took part in, so most of her book is filled with drawn-out, schoolgirl-level drama between her and Lisette, the so-called Pot Princess of Beverly Hills.
The chapter headings were misleading and made me believe that Ms. Cady was finally going to get to something interesting, only to find myself having to force myself through more tired melodrama.
There wasn't enough to this story to justify publishing this book.
