Have you read the Gourmet Girl Mysteries written by Jessica Conant-Park and Susan Park? They're fun, sassy reads, and I definitely recommend them.
With the end of that series Jessica Park has decided to branch into the Young Adult market, and I'm happy to announce that she has a new ebook. Though it's an ebook, if you don't have Kindle or Nook, you can download software from Amazon (free!) to read ebooks on your home computer.
Here's a bit about the book:
Relatively Famous by Jessica Park
And a review from Dru Ann's review site:
Relatively Famous by Jessica Park. Published by Smashwords, June 2010
Meet Dani McKinley: A typical teen whose world is rocked when she finds out that her father is a famous Hollywood action star. Now meet Mark Ocean: A self-serving actor with a floundering career who sees that a daughter is just what he needs to reinvent his image. When the two spend the summer together, they must not only wrangle their own love lives, but try to become father and daughter.
This is my first young adult book and I enjoyed it. Dani learns that her father is a famous actor and spends the summer getting to know him. We watch as her father learns what it means to have a daughter in his life while Dani learns about friendship, love, maturity and acceptance. This was a good read. My rating: 4.5 stars

Sounds like a fun book, doesn't it?
