    Happy, hippie teen read

    This is one of those books you either dig or you bury.

    It's a happy, hippie teen read about fifteen-year-old Scotty and her grandmother Charley who are moving from one movie set to another in a trailer trying to live as much of a normal life as they can while evading a killer out to get them. A lot of it is written diary-style by Scotty, the conversational tone balancing out the grave plot twists.

    Scotty is hardly the typical teen: she's raised to think Charley is her mother, discovers the truth that her mother is dead, then finds she could still be alive--all while avoiding being killed by a politician's henchman.

    Other than that, she's just like everyone else her age: quirky, a little weird, loves burgers and fries, and learning bit by bit how faith works in daily life.

    Finding Hollywood Nobody will interest tweens: the book cover is an attractively fun and easygoing, it's just the right length for short attention spans, but, typical of Navpress books, substantive enough with solid biblical insights.

    loved this sequel!

    In this sequel to Hollywood Nobody, Scotty finds the truth about herself, her grandmother, and her past. New issues of faith and friendship arise as she struggles not only with the normal parts of growing up, but with the realization that her past as she's known it wasn't true.

    I loved this sequel to Hollywood Nobody. It seems like Scotty's matured, and it's interesting to see less of the blog and more of her actual story. Her interactions with Seth disappointed me; I kept expecting him to finally get it right.

    Over all, I really enjoyed Finding Hollywood Nobody. It was a quick read, but the religion aspect of it felt less much forced than it did in Hollywood Nobody.

    Note: I was given this book free of charge in exchange for a review. It didn't have to be positive, just honest.

    Cool Book

    Scotty and Charley are on the move again. This time they are headed to Marshall, Texas to another one of Jeremy's films. While staying in town Scotty makes new friends. She learns about herself and God, which wasn't really what she planned, but she's happy for it. She even learns more about her family, things get better for her in Charley. Biker Guy is still chasing them but Scotty is tired of running away.When she finally confronts him what could be the result?

    I really did like this book, it shows you how God is always there, no matter what. I even learned a bit about myself too. I have to admit some parts were not at all what I expected, but it was a great book overall. I give it four stars, and definitely recommend it if you're looking for a quick, easy read.

    pacey and relevant

    Teen novels are a mixed bag. Some are notable for their teen-cred references and lack of plot and direction, some are well meaning on what teenagers expect to be reading but some fall into an altogether different category - a novel that is 'on tempo' and meaningful. Teenagers that actually like a good story with realistic, well thought out characters with recognisable flaws will love this book. Young people with a passion for creating lasting friendships based on trust, responsibility sharing and love will adore this. Youths who love to pick up books that engage, excite and stimulate them to create images out of a wonderfully rich and modern vocabulary will really take to this. Without revealing too much about the plotline, this is a story about escape and pursuit but also a story about discovery and prayer. Written in a zippy diary and journal style, it is engaging and attractive in the way that teenagers without self-consciousness are. Mixing up text-speak, blog entries, a pacey and racey narrative, a wonderfully captivating story and characters who you cannot but help warm to for their eccentricities as much as their natural-ness, this is a story and a book that works for its target audience. It is also a book that will get a positive reaction from teenagers because it is this type of book that fills a gap in the marketplace for literature with an affirming message that does not rely on carnalities to bond its main characters. Highly recommended.

    Great second installment to a wonderful series!

    I adore Scotty and her view of the world. I also loved seeing her deal with stressful situations and learning the power of prayer. She is a genuine teen and she cares about people, and because you are in her head you can see what she is thinking and feeling. Scotty continues to blog about the "scoop" regarding Seth and Karissa, and she actually gives pretty sound advice on more than one occasion. That whole celebrity scenario is such fun to read. Then add to that her friend in crisis and a delightful surprise at the end (which made me actually cry several times - but they were happy tears) this book is about as close to perfect as any I've read. <BR/><BR/>I wish I could say more but that would make this review a spoiler and you don't want that. Half the fun is disovering these things (as a reader) while you enjoy the story. At any rate, Finding Hollywood Nobody has all the makings of a great YA novel. It has believeable characters and situations, realistic conflict, quirky scenarios, and suspenseful plot. I am totally loving this series and plan to read the next installment very soon.

    Biker Guy is closing in!

    In Lisa Samson¿s Finding Hollywood Nobody, Scotty and Charley head to Marshall, Texas where Jeremy is directing a horror film. Horrifying to Scotty is that actress, Karissa Bonano, has the lead. While Charley mass produces food for the set, Scotty explores her new surroundings as usual, befriending the locals who teach her a little bit about the power of prayer. She looks forward to Seth Haas¿ visit, but Biker Guy is nearby, which sets everyone on edge. Scotty is tired of living in fear and looking over her shoulder. She gets careless. Will prayer be enough to save her when Biker Guy finally catches up with her?<BR/><BR/>I loved Lisa Samson¿s first book in this series, Hollywood Nobody, and this sequel did not disappoint. Scotty is a wonderfully deep character with a witty, sarcastic voice. The story weaves through the lives of real people and shows us that making friends is always worth the effort, despite age, race, fame, or wealth. It also left me anxiously awaiting book three. Well done!<BR/><BR/>Highly Recommended.

    Love and Life

    I honestly could not put this book down! Previously, I really enjoyed the prequel to this [book: Hollywood Nobody], and even without that background I still think this would have been just as enjoyable. Scotty is such a character and there is no way that someone cannot just fall in love with her. I cannot wait for the next [book: Romancing Hollywood Nobody]. [author: Lisa Samson] has truly won my heart over with her work and I will definitely look forward to her in the future. I already have [book: Embrace Me] and the novel retelling of the film [book: Bella] in my TBR pile and will you a review of them ASAP!
