Today’s Teaser Tuesday: Unscripted Joss Byrd
Author: Lygia Day Peñaflor
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Publication Date: August 23, 2016
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 always enjoy books that have elements of acting and the theatre for some reason, so this book has been on my radar for quite some time. It is an enjoyable story so far and it is another great contemporary to add to your summer reading list.
Book Quotes: Unscripted Joss Byrd
“I don’t know what I’m doing here. She should’ve been the actress.”
