May Zhee wrote this story when she was 16 years old - or maybe 17. It's self published too. Don't let either of these facts put you off. Sweetheart From Hell is a great read.
The star of the book is Vicky. She is one of those spoilt rotten, clingy, demanding, mercenary, bitchy girls who get away with appalling manners because they are pretty. She's the sort of girl my friend Grace calls SCBs (Skinny Chinese Bitches). But you can't help liking Vicky just a tiny bit.
The story starts when Vicky divorces her husband because he refuses to run after the lipstick she dropped on the plane, ("the plane is taking off" is not an excuse). Vicky then goes out in Kuala Lumpur to find herself a better prospect. Whether she gets what she wants or what she deserves you'll have to find out for yourself.
This book was published a while ago but if you look around you should be able to find it. I got mine in MPH. You can also check out May Zhee's blog.
