When sixteen-year-old Brooke Bentley's green convertible and cell phone conk out during a tropical rainstorm, she believes it's just bad luck. But when she darts through the dark to a dilapidated Victorian she thinks is the home of a friend and is invited in by a butler wearing a faded black tux, Brooke knows it must be karma. Because how often do you meet a reclusive 1950's movie star who thinks she's actress Terry Moore? And how often does someone as charming as eighty-year-old Laura de France insist on turning you into a movie star, too?

This was such a great quick read that was very enjoyable. I couldn't put it down. Not only is the storyline pretty great and interesting, but I love how realistic the characters were and how attached I got to them. For a short read, the book was straight to the point, keeping me both engaged and excited to read what came next. Definitely had some twists that you wouldn't have expect. This is definitely a book that not only teens will absolutely love to read because they'll be able to relate to, but adults as well. I can't wait to see what Laura Kennedy comes out with next!
