The Truth About Diamonds
by Nicole Richie Details
As the adopted daughter of Lionel Richie, Nicole Richie has led a life of privilege among Hollywood's elite. But despite its glamorous trappings, Nicole's life has been anything but charmed.

In this novel - the first of two in a series - Nicole takes readers behind the scenes to the real world of young Hollywood royalty - a world that no one knows better. The names have been changed but the stories are true, and the fabulously young, rich and famous characters in this story are real people with more drama in their lives than the characters they portray on TV - and in public.
