Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Peñaflor
Release Date: August 23, 2016
Publisher: Roaring Brook
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Goodreads Book Description
Hollywood critics agree. Joss Byrd is “fiercely emotional,” a young actress with “complete conviction,” and a “powerhouse.”
Joss Byrd is America’s most celebrated young actress, but on the set of her latest project, a gritty indie film called The Locals, Joss’s life is far from glamorous. While struggling with her mother’s expectations, a crush on her movie brother, and a secret that could end her career, Joss must pull off a performance worthy of a star. When her renowned, charismatic director demands more than she is ready to deliver, Joss must go off-script to stay true to herself.
Why I’m Excited
Honestly, who isn’t at least a little bit interested in diving into the brain of a young Hollywood actress? It’s a world I know absolutely nothing about, so even if this book is not even close to the real deal, I’m still pumped to read it and get a glimpse into that realm.
