This week’s book: Unscripted Joss Byrd

Unscripted Joss ByrdTitle: Unscripted Joss Byrd
Author: Lygia Day Peñaflor
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
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.

Amazon “Book Depository


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!

    I haven’t really read that many acting books (the only one coming to mind is the Secrets of My Hollywood Life series) so this sounds interesting. I love summer reads!

    I haven’t read a lot of stories about actors… It is such an interesting world though. For an author, I can imagine it offers up a lot of inspiration on a huge silver platter!
