Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s book:
Title: Unscripted Joss Byrd
Author: Lygia Day Peñaflor
Publisher: Roaring Brook
Publication Date: August 23, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads): 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.
I am super excited for Unscripted Joss Byrd! It’s a good old acting book, which I always seem enjoy. This sounds like the perfect contemporary for summer, and I can’t wait to pick it up!
