Angels on Sunset Boulevard by Melissa de la Cruz

This is the first Melissa de la Cruz book I have read, and it was really good. Here is a summary(taken from Melissa website):

Johnny Silver is the world’s soon-to-be biggest rock star, but on the eve of his debut concert in Los Angeles, he mysteriously disappears, causing global pandemonium. His friend Taj tries to discover the truth about his disappearance, which leads her to and its shadowy founder, Sutton Werner, who throws the wildest parties in Bel-Air.

TAP started out innocently enough, as a website that dishes the dirt on the kids of Sunset Boulevard and beyond. But it has become something more. Membership is a privilege with responsibilities and consequences.

At Sutton’s parties, anything goes, especially in the legendary backroom rituals nicknamed The Angels Practice. Rumors abound of a special drink handed out at the parties that tap into otherworldly sensations.

One night Taj meets Nick, a Westside preppie who doesn’t buy into the TAP mayhem, especially since his kid sister never came home from attending one of its blow-out bashes. Slowly the two of them are drawn to TAP and to each other. But Taj just might know more than she’s letting on....

Are you ready for the darker side of Tinsel-town’s brightest lights?

I really liked this book, I found it interesting and I wanted to keep reading. I loved the way Melissa de la Cruz brought out the message that the world doesn't except people. Which brings the people who feel alone to the point of paying for friendship. And paying for friendship is wrong, people should like you for who you are and not for the gifts or money you give them. I am really looking forward to reading more of Melissa's books, ans I hope when I'm older I stumble upon this book again, because it reminds you to stay grounded.

Silence is silver, but Books are golden...
