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.
Lygia Day Peñaflor is a private academic teacher for young Hollywood stars. Her students have included the young casts of Gossip Girl and Boardwalk Empire, as well as I Am Legend. Unscripted Joss Byrd is her debut novel. She lives on Long Island in New York.
This was such a cute and sometimes funny book. I loved seeing behind the scenes of a young actress. I felt like I was really there and I think the author did an amazing job giving us this compelling read. I really loved Joss she was such a great character, talent and more she really made the book. I loved the idea that she had a secret as it just introduced a little mystery into the story. Theres so much I can't say about this little book as it would spoil the plot for you. But I can say that this is full of dangers and more. It doesn't shy away from what kids go through being in the hollywood limelight.
Perfect read for those who are in situations where it might be hard to stay true to yourself.
