The book is set in New York in 1984 when Phoebe is 22 years old and dealing with the recent death of her father. She wants a glamourous lifestyle but can only find work at nightclubs as Astrid the Star Girl who tells celebrities their fortunes with movie tickets. Naturally, drugs, sex and rock-and-roll lifestyle has drastic effects, and Phoebe struggles to find herself. The complicated relationship between Phoebe and her best friend/roommate Carmen changes when Phoebe makes a mistake. This book is a fun look at 1980s culture and I recommend it for fans of Sweet Bitter and Fleabag.
