I devoured this book in two days. I rarely want to sneak off and read a book until I finish it, but this was one of those books. I adore anything Lisa Samson writes anyway because she is edgy and unconventional, but I'm telling you that she has a real winner here. The heroine is a fifteen-year-old girl, Scotty, who reminds me of several teens I know. Hey, I have a fifteen-year-old son and a fourteen-year-old son and I still loved the book, so you don't have to be YA to read it and love it. I adored how Scotty even had herself a pet phrase... 'I'm just saying'. One reviewer said sometimes some of the things Scotty thought seemed old for her age. I totally disagree. I have very smart kids and they think like Scotty did...exactly. Teens are very perceptive these days. And Scotty had wisdom beyond her years due to exposure to many things she shouldn't know. The author made that point very well several times. I loved the blogging theme of the story 'of course' and the topics covered on the Hollywood Nobody blog. It was so realistic...right down to the funny comments. The main characters seemed so real to me. Her mother reminded me of some hippies I know 'and knew' when I was younger. Very funny stuff! Especially the cheese fetish. Scotty was just so quirky and cool. I know several teens who love vintage wear and are so classy and weird in their own way, just like Scotty. I found her totally likeable and believable. Wonderful story. Intriguing plot. Hot topics 'and great tension' with a hottie hero who is a movie star and also a great guy because Hollywood hadn't ruined him yet. So check this book out. I guarantee it'll hold your attention. The ending is killer satisfying, but leaves you wanting more at the same time. March 2008--when the sequel comes out--is not soon enough for me. I loved this book!

Another recent Free Friday Nook selection!
Hollywood Nobody is about teenager Scotty Dawn and her life on the road traveling in an RV with her film food-stylist mom. She spends her time home schooling herself, blogging about Hollywood and various celebrities, and trying to figure out where she fits in the world.

There is a sweet romantic interest, several quirky (but nice) RV travelers, various other folks that Scotty encounters while on this film shoot, and one menacing guy who is following her.

This was a fun and easy read especially geared for young adult readers. (I think it can also be filed under Christian Fiction, but it was not "preachy" at all.

    Goodish

    It was totally annoying how she talked about cheese the whole entire time. Other than that I guess it was ok....
