Friday Memes: Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel. I got this eARC at Edelweiss for review. Here is the description of this June 3 release:
With the mystery and suspense of the Pretty Little Liars series, the Hollywood drama of Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy, and the creepiness of Michelle Hodkin's The Unbecoming of Mara DyerVivian Divine Is Dead will thrill fans of emotionally charged, fast-paced, contemporary fiction.

Teen celebrity Vivian Divine has had a rough six months—her movie-star mother was murdered, and her boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend. Through it all, she's had to smile for the camera—this is the stuff the tabloids live for, after all.
When a death threat arrives with her fan mail, Vivian decides to run to Mexico, hoping to escape whoever it is who wants her dead. There, she finds an ally in the mysterious and charming Nick, but even he seems like he can't be trusted.As Vivian travels deeper into Mexico, she finds herself asking a horrifying question: If she can't hide from the paparazzi, what makes her think she can elude a madman?

Filled with surprising twists, poignant moments, and the snark of a Hollywood starlet suddenly on her own, Vivian Divine Is Dead brings a fresh new voice to contemporary fiction.

As New York Times bestselling author of the Beautiful Creatures series Kami Garcia says, Vivian Divine Is Dead is "a heartbreaking and magical story about love, second chances, and finding yourself."
My name is Vivian Divine. I have a secret. I know how I'm going to die.
Friday 56:
I don't remember much about the morning my mom was kidnapped, but I do remember that she wasn't wearing makeup. For a woman who'd been voted Hollywood's most beautiful woman three years running by Celebrity magazine, that's a big deal.
