Description

How did Lucky Santangelo become the kick-ass woman she is today? Only bestselling author Jackie Collins can tell in this prequel to all of the Santangelo novels, featuring a young, beautiful and headstrong teenaged Lucky
Lucky Saint is a fifteen-year-old wild child who discovered her mother's murdered body floating in the family swimming pool when she was only five years old. She is the daughter of the notorious Gino, who's kept her cloistered in their Bel Air mansion ever since. But she's about to discover the world: boys, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll. And no one can stop her now...

CONFESSIONS OF A WILD CHILD
Lucky navigates her teen years-from first kisses and brushes with famous older men to attending boarding school and adventuring through exotic Greek islands-as Gino, a powerful Vegas hotel owner, struggles to control her. Meanwhile, her brother, Dario, is too scared to tell Gino that he's gay. But fearless Lucky will not be held back by her father...or anyone else. Soon she has no choice but to strike out on her own path-one that will lead her to become the powerful and charismatic woman that she was destined to be...
"Jackie Collins knows a thing or two about life in the fast lane...[with] her wry sense of humor and spitfire approach." -Bazaar

      • bioText: There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins (1937-2015) can tell you what really goes on in the fastest lane of all. From Beverly Hills bedrooms to a raunchy prowl along the streets of Hollywood; from glittering rock parties and concerts to stretch limos and the mansions of power brokers—Jackie Collins chronicles the real truth from the inside looking out. Jackie Collins has been called a "raunchy moralist" by the late director Louis Malle and "Hollywood's own Marcel Proust" by Vanity Fair magazine. With over 400 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with some twenty-seven New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Jackie Collins is one of the world's top-selling novelists. She is known for giving her readers an unrivalled insider's knowledge of Hollywood and the glamorous lives and loves of the rich, famous, and infamous. "I write about real people in disguise," she says. "If anything, my characters are toned down — the truth is much more bizarre." Ms. Collins books include Poor Little Bitch Girl, A Santangelo Story and Drop Dead Beautiful. Jackie Collins was awarded an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II in 2013. She lived in Los Angeles, CA.

        February 24, 2014
        Ambitious, cunning Lucky Santangelo, daughter of gangster Gino Santangelo, is one of Jackie Collins’s most popular heroines. In this prequel, Collins goes back in time to tell the tale of Lucky’s misspent youth as a wild 15-year-old: fooling around with countless boys, getting kicked out of stuffy boarding schools, secretly running off with a friend for a crazy adventure, and ultimately, being forced into an arranged marriage by her father. Narrator Poitier is well cast as Lucky, perfectly capturing the carefree, rebellious, defiant tone of a teen impatient to grow up and unwilling to play by anyone’s rules. Poitier also has a lot of fun producing over-the-top character voices, including a strict French schoolmistress and a sassy fashion consultant. Cañez narrates chapters told from Gino’s point of view. His narration is serviceable and straightforward; it works, but Poitier is much more entertaining. A St. Martin’s hardcover.
