Book Synopsis:

Love. Intentions. Acting. Life is more complicated than a Hollywood story.

I'm actress Liana Marie Michael. Hollywood's obsession with beauty made my actress-mother stay competitive. Athletes use steroids. Actors use plastic surgery and anti-aging drugs. So now I'm a physical mess inside, dealing with it, and starring in a major motion picture.

Of course I can't quit. I have brain surgery, feel alive at Grandma's Montana ranch, go back to Hollywood and act. My boyfriend, Manuel, and I want to get married. Everyone has an opinion. I ignore the millions of naysayers until consequences turn dire.

I believe that dwelling on pain is a waste of time. Indecision is exhausting. I want to write my own future. But I'm only eighteen years old.

In a world where an actress is a product and everyone is a critic, can our young love survive? Should it?


I love the idea of this series. Reading the memoirs of a fictional actress is such a fun idea that brings about real young adult issues in an entertaining way. This was a wonderful sequel to the series and I highly recommend it to those looking for a young adult series that isn't paranormal in nature.
