Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Peñaflor
Publisher: Roaring Brook
Release Date: August 23, 2016
Summary: 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.
Ever since I read Everything Leads To You by Nina Lacour & Something Real by Heather Demetrios I’ve loved YA books centering around Hollywood/movies/acting etc.
From the summary alone, this book sounds like its up my alley!
+ this sounds like a great summer contemporary!
I will definitely be reading this when August comes!
