The Valley Of The Dolls - Jacqueline Susann - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Valley of the Dolls:

Three dark lives in the spotlight.

My favorite Jacqueline Susann quote from the book:

Never judge anyone by another's opinions. We all have different sides that we show to different people. 

Questions I pondered while reading The Valley of the Dolls:

Why do the talented self-destruct?

How much should you sacrifice for love?

My review of the book:

There is too much pressure for celebrities to be perfect.

Keep your head small and your heart humble.

Self-respect should never be tossed aside for a relationship.
