Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel is an action-packed mystery about a girl named Vivian Divine, whose mother was killed only six months ago, and she now finds out that the person who killed her mother is after her now. The book begins by telling us about her. She’s a sixteen year old movie star, and her father, one of the most famous movie directors, whom she lives with as well as her assistant, Mary, who is basically her second mother. She lives her entire life having everything handed to her until one day she gets the news from fan mail that she is going to die.

The book started out with her, and she was just one of the most famous, spoiled actresses in the industry. She got everything handed it to her and she didn't have to work very hard for anything. When she got the death threat, the star went from having a perfect life to a tense, anxious, and terrifying life that you would think no star would ever have. When she left home and went to Mexico, her perspective slowly began to change. She had to start doing things herself and she began to appreciate smaller things in life such as someone caring enough about her to give her their food or someone even just genuinely wondering if she was okay and if there was anything they could do to make her feel better. Nick, the boy who was helping her run away, also helped her to change her character. He made her realize that she didnt need to always be in the spotlight with the most famous people by her side, she just needed to be with someone she cared about and could be herself around without being scared to show her true colors. Before her character changed, she wouldnt allow herself to cry in front of cameras, have breakdowns, or even get angry or frustrated. She had to be a perfect girl living a perfect life.

There was always some sort of conflict happening and never a dull moment. Also, the way the author described Vivian and actually made her have characteristics that a real teenager would have was great. I expected her to seem completely unrealistic because she was a stuck up Hollywood actress, but really she was just a teenager that was struggling to keep herself sane and in control of her life in a stressful world where everyone wanted her to be the most perfect that she could be. The only things that I disliked about this book was how every time Vivian would talk about a movie set or something from her past, all that she talked about was a movie that she was in called Zombie Killer. She never talked about memories from other movies that she was in, it was only that one. Also, she always had a perfect storm in her life it seemed. It was almost perfect. Whenever she would get lost, she would stumble upon someone that was willing to take her in even though they had no clue who she was. Every person that she needed help from spoke english and spanish which was a coincidence that happened every single time she met someone
