For fans of The Happiness Project and The Year of Living Biblically comes a pointed look at our fascination with celebrities, as one woman strives to remake herself in the image of her favorite stars. What woman hasna€™t seen pictures of Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, or BeyoncAc and wished she had their clothes, their abs, their seemingly flawless lives? For Rachel Bertsche, these celebrities are the epitome of perfectiona€”self-assured and effortlessly cool. Yet lately, between juggling her career, her marriage, and her dream of becoming a mother, Bertsche feels anything but put together. In Jennifer, Gwyneth a Me, Bertsche embarks on a quest to emulate her Hollywood role modelsa€”while sticking to a budgeta€”to see if they really hold the keys to happiness. While trying to unlock the starsa€™ secrets, from Sarah Jessica Parkera€™s wardrobe to Julia Robertsa€™s sense of calm toa€”maybe one daya€”Jessica Albaa€™s chic pregnancy, Bertsche learns valuable lessons.

But can she immerse herself in the A-list lifestyle and still stay true to herself? And will her pursuit of perfection really lead to happiness?
