Three Girls and Their BrotherDownloadable Audiobook - 2008
As granddaughters of a late, famous literary critic, the beautiful redheaded Heller sisters capture the attention of the New Yorker magazine, which promptly features them in a glamorous spread shot by a world-famous photographer. The fashion world sits up and takes notice, and in no time flat, three nobodies from Brooklyn have been proclaimed the new "It" girls.But with no parental guidance-Mom is a former beauty queen living vicariously through her daughters, while Dad is nowhere to be found-the three girls find themselves easy prey to the venal forces of show business. Posing in every hot fashion magazine, tangling with snarling fashionistas and soul-sucking agents, hitting A-list parties and skipping school, the sisters' rise to fame begins to unhinge them all. When the youngest-who never really wanted to be a model to begin with-does an off-Broadway play, she ironically begins to outshine the others, creating a vicious rivalry between the girls and prompting a virtual breakdown in their quiet, neglected brother.As the ruthless paparazzi catch their every controversy, an awful incident with a famous movie star blasts the girls-and their brother-out of the haze of fame, stopping their self-destructive spiral and reinforcing their love for one another.
