I enjoyed it until the end and then I was completely over it. Too cliche, unlikeable main character. I know Kate's mother has just passed away but I sort of wanted her to pass too.
I really felt like this could be non-fiction. Evelyn is an amalgamation of a number of stars of yesteryear but she felt real and fleshed out to me. I loved her, I cried with her, and I got angry with her.
