How did Lucky Santangelo become the kick-ass woman she is today? Only Jackie Collins can tell…

 

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…

Read from the Book

CHAPTER ONE     How does a girl get through school stuck with the name Lucky Saint? How does a girl answer questions about her family when her mom was murdered and her dad was once an infamous criminal known as Gino the Ram? Beats me. But if I have to, then I absolutely can do it. I’m a Santangelo after all. A freaking survivor of a major screwed-up childhood. A girl with a shining future. Now here I am—a week before my fifteenth birthday—about to be packed off to L’Evier, which I’m informed is a very expensive private boarding school in Switzerland, so I’d better like it or else. I am totally pissed. My brother, Dario, is totally pissed. The truth is we’re all we’ve got, and separating us is simply not fair. Dario is younger than me by eighteen months, and I’ve always felt that I should look after him. He’s sensitive. I’m not. He’s artistic. I’m a tomboy. Dario likes to paint and read. I like to kick a football and shoot baskets. Somehow our roles got reversed. We live in a huge mausoleum—sorry, I mean house—in Bel Air, California. A house filled with maids and housekeepers and tutors and drivers and security guards. Kind of like a fancy prison compound, only our backyard features a man-made lake, a tennis court, and an Olympic-size swimming pool. Yeah, my dad has a ton of money. Yippee! Luxury. You think? No way. I’m kind of a loner with very few friends, ’cause m

About the Author

There have been many imitators, but only Jackie Collins 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 more than 500 million copies of her books sold in more than forty countries, and with thirty 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 unrivaled 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."
