Looking for a fun young adult read from a new author?  Check out Lucky Me by Saba Kapur:

About the book:
 For eighteen year old Gia Winters, having a movie star for a father, a former Playboy bunny as a mother, a Hollywood mansion, and a closet stocked with Chanel is simply another day in the life.

But her world is turned upside down when her father mysteriously hires a group of bodyguards to trail the family 24/7 and threatening phone calls from a “Dr. D” start buzzing daily.

When Gia scores the coveted role of Miss Golden Globe, she is forced to strike a deal with her bodyguard, Jack, who is almost as arrogant as he is attractive. Juggling Gia’s romantic failures, fashion faux pas, and celebrity obsessions, the duo investigate a series of clues with the help of a police cadet, who has a special set of skills and an even better set of dimples.

But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, danger levels rise higher than her stilettos as Gia learns that the biggest secrets might be the ones buried in her own home.

In a place where the hills have eyes, high school nemeses, bad hair days, raging parties, and stolen kisses, there can only be trouble for a girl who was just starting to consider herself lucky.

About the author:
Born in India, Saba Kapur spent her childhood in Indonesia and Kiev, Ukraine. Her passion for storytelling developed at a young age, born from a deep seated love of books.

Saba is a 20-year-old writer currently in her final year of college, studying International Relations and Criminology at Monash University. She hopes to one day become a fabulous lawyer in New York City, with a closet full of stilettos. Lucky Me is her first novel and an ode to her favorite things: fashion, romance and mystery.

In her spare time, Saba enjoys reading, watching anything to do with Ryan Gosling and pretending she’s Beyonc√©. She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia with her parents, her older sister and a large supply of chocolate.

My thoughts:
I'll start by saying that Lucky Me is a young adult contemporary romance novel, which makes it a little out of my normal reading comfort zone.  The main character, Gia, is young, rich and tends to be a bit self-absorbed, making her character even harder for me to relate to.  That being said, she is extremely witty and is written with what I imagine to be the personality of many teens in her social circle in real life.  This book definitely gives a modern day twist to a familiar story line of the thriller/suspense genre.  I don't feel like we learn that much about anyone else in the book...Princess Gia steals the show.  However, if you are a fan of modern young adult romance/suspense, you are likely to enjoy Lucky Me.
