Star Island by Carl Hiaasen

In Star Island, twenty-two-year-old Cherry Pye has been a musical icon (although she lip syncs her songs) and a celebrity since she was a teenager. She spends her time living the party life in Miami Beach. Most of the time, she's drunk or high, if not in rehab. To protect her image, Ann DeLusia is hired to be her body double to appear in public when Cherry is too "indisposed" to appear herself. Bang Abbott is a paparazzo obsessed with Cherry, but he unknowingly kidnaps Ann instead. Now Ann must be rescued without revealing her role in Cherry's life. It's more Florida hijinks from Carl Hiaasen and Star Island has received mostly positive reviews with the Associated Press saying, "Hiaasen himself is blessed with a talent for writing very funny books, and Star Island gives readers another chance to enjoy it."
