According to a Source by Abby Stern

What They Say....We live in a society obsessed with celebrity, but have you ever wondered who is on the inside gathering the best celebrity gossip and how do they get access? According to a Source: A Novel by Abby Stern dishes on this behind the scenes world in a way that only a Hollywood insider could. 

Ella Warren works for celebrity news website, The Life, as a club reporter. She’s assigned to stake out Hollywood’s hottest clubs and spy on the celebrities inside. When Ella is pressured by her Devil Wears Prada-type boss to find an exclusive story to keep her job, she has to decide if being in Hollywood’s elite inner circle is worth jeopardizing her friendship with actress Holiday Hall, her budding romance with Holiday’s agent, and her family. 
A juicy, big-hearted novel about a young woman who loses herself in a fast-paced, glamorous world where finding your authentic self isn’t easy.

What I Say.....This was a super cute little read about a young woman who has developed a secret identity and a super secret job as an undercover Hollywood reporter.  

Ella has ben working for years as an undercover Hollywood reporter and she loves her job.  She gets to drop celebrity gossip, but tries to be fair about the information that she shares.   She's broken up with her long term boyfriend and has a bourgeoning flirtation with a Hollywood agent.
