Product Description:

For 15-year-old Scotty Dawn, life's beginning to resemble a movie! She recently learned that her film-industry mom is actually her grandmother, and that her father was killed by the mob. With the hit man still at large, Scotty hides on a Hollywood lot, where she battles fear and loneliness and discovers the life-changing power of prayer.

My Review:

Scotty has found out that much of what she thought she knew, she doesn't really have a clue about. Her mother turns out to be someone else. Seth, well, Seth needs to figure out what he's looking for. Biker guy. Hmmm. Is he really out to get her? If so, why does he pull at her heart? And cheese, can it really be that bad? How could something that tastes so good be bad?

Scotty, fifteen, dealing with the unknown, the untried and unusual is sweet, vulnerable, frustrating and real. Resembling a whole bunch of people who've crossed my path over the years -- ones I've grown to love.

Sweet and salty follow-up to Hollywood Nobody.

I've liked both of the books so far-the characters are what have really drawn me in, esp. Scotty. :-)
