Jordan Meadows thinks nothing of charging $350.00 on her dad’s credit card to have a wax job, after all she’s one of the Fabulous Four. She has to keep up her appearance, even if it is summer break.
Unfortunately, her dad does not see it that way and he tells Jordan to get a job, the Bank of Dad is closed.
After the shock and denial wears off, she does just that…with a back-up plan in mind that will get her some sympathy from her dad, and maybe get things back to her normal.
House of Wax, a B-grade horror movie, is in her town filming, and on a whim, she applies for a position as a make-up assistant and gets the job. Her first day on the job there is a crisis; they need a supplier for the wax they use to do some of the gruesome make-up required. Well, Jordan certainly knows all about wax and she is able to arrange a shipment to them.
Her new position also brings Jordan into contact with Keith and Ned, two boys from her high school she’d never lower herself to acknowledge, after all she’s one of the Fab Four.
But the movie set is different and Jordan discovers that both Keith and Ned have things to offer as friends, which is fine now, but what about when they all three return to high school?
I loved House of Whacks. Denise Gwen gives us a behind the scenes look at a movie set and a peek into a sixteen-year-old girl’s mind. Both ring with the peal of believability. Jordan does soul-searching and doesn’t care much for what she discovers about herself and her friends.
I’m not saying anymore, because I don’t want to give away the ending, but buy this book. You will not be disappointed.
