Synopsis

Confessions of a Wild Child by Jackie Collins

Who is Lucky Saint? She's 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. In Confessions of a Wild Child you will follow Lucky as she navigates her teen years - boys, drugs, family dramas, and many adventures from Greek islands to Vegas penthouses. You will meet the Santangelo family. Gino Santangelo, Lucky's father, a powerful man with a dubious past, who owns hotels in Vegas and struggles to control his willful and stubborn daughter. And Dario, Lucky's gay teenage brother who is too scared to reveal his sexual preference to his father. In Confessions of a Wild Child you will discover how Lucky strikes a path to become the powerful and charismatic woman she is today. Super-heroine of seven books and three mini-series, Lucky Santangelo is Jackie Collins' most popular and beloved heroine.
