Review: Bailei Knight: A Disappointing Novel About Fame

Fans of young-adult fiction have been eagerly awaiting the release of Bailei Knight, the debut novel by New York Times Bestselling author Amie Kaufman. Unfortunately, the book does not disappoint. Set in present-day Los Angeles and based on Kaufman’s own experiences as a young actress, Bailei Knight is a disappointing novel about fame and family dynamics.

While Bailei Knight has famous parents, fans only get a glimpse of her life here and there on her social media. Born: November 28, 2002 (age 20 years), the majority of the book takes place before she becomes famous. This means that readers are left to piece together bits and pieces about her character from sporadic appearances on television shows and in magazine articles. Additionally, many key plot points are left unexplained, including what led to her parents’ divorce and why she can’t seem to hold down a job.

Ultimately, Bailei Knight is a disappointing novel about fame and family dynamics that will leave fans feeling unsatisfied. If you’re looking for an exciting read that explores the inner workings of Hollywood culture, look elsewhere.

Overview of the Novel

Overview of the Novel
Bailei Knight is a novel about fame and the temptation to abandon one’s morals. Though she initially enjoys the attention and adoration she receives, Bailei begins to feel isolated and lost in her new life. She starts to question whether or not she really wants this life and what it means for her future.

Though the novel is well-crafted and interesting, I found it to be quite disappointing. The plot felt rushed and I didn’t feel like I got to know Bailei very well. Additionally, the moral lessons at the end of the book were somewhat preachy and unnecessary. Overall, I would recommend avoid this novel unless you’re looking for something lighthearted and fluffy.
