“Hollywood Nobody” by Lisa Samson (book 1)
“Fifteen-year-old Scotty Dawn travels to movie sets with her mom, Charley, a food designer. Scotty is determined to discover what she wants from life. She’s even documenting the journey on her “Hollywood Nobody” blog. But as Scotty begins to ask tough questions, will her story have a happy ending?”
I am so in love with this book and am so glad it’s the first book in a series. Books normally take me 2 weeks to read because of my reading problems. This book took me 4 days. I would stay up til 1 or 2 in the morning reading. I was just so into the story I didn’t want to put it down.
Scotty is your not so average teenage girl. She travels around in a RV named the “Y” with her mother. Her mother is a food designer for movies and magazines but mainly movies and mainly movies with a director named Jeremy. Scotty doesn’t like her living arrangements but tries to make the best of them. She homeschools herself using the people and places around her as her assignments. She also runs an anonymous blog called “Hollywood Nobody”. This blog is there she rants or raves about different celebrities and also gives the inside scoop on each movie set she is on. Scotty also has a journal she writes in to share her frustrations, dreams and fear. She calls the journal Elaine.
While on this current movie set she makes so really great friends, Joy and Seth. She also meets up with a few other friends she’s made along her journeys. While on this location she finds out there is a Tent Revival that will be going on. She doesn’t know much about religious things but decides to do some research and attend a meeting or two. Although in this book she does not accept Christ into her life, she does get closer to understanding Him and even has a Bible now.
The book ends with a HUGE curve ball that I don’t want to post here as to not give away what happens. I totally recommend to finding this book and reading it.
I’m excited to pick up a copy of the next book and find out what will happen next in Scotty’s life, what adventures she will have next. This book was definitely a page turner. I totally recommend this book to readers ages 14+.
