She’s been pretending to be 18 for so long, it feels like the truth.
When the only way for 15 year old photographer, Kip Chanin, to earn a living is as paparazzi, she can’t say no. Kip’s first photo is of Alex Milne, the handsome and volatile young actor. That one photo changes both their lives. Kip finds herself challenged to be a better photographer, a better daughter and to be a better friend. For someone used to getting by on her own, this could be Kip’s biggest lesson. The second biggest–You do what you have to in Hollywood to survive
I have to admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book when I received it, but then again, this is why I love doing reviews. There are a lot of books I would never think of reading, but then they are handed to me and I have to read them to do a review. This is one of those books that makes be grateful to be able to do this. The characters are multi-dimensional, smart, funny, sharp, damaged, flawed and believable. The book takes place in my home town, Los Angeles, and Barbara Morgenroth knows her geography. She also knows her industry.
I was so engaged by the relationships in this story, I read it in one sitting, then immediately bought the second book… which I read last night. And I hope there’s a third book coming out, because Barbara does like cliff hangers. Having said that, I don’t mind cliff hangers and I LOVED this book!! Kip is an independent, smart, talented girl and although at times she seems much older than she is, we understand why, but then the author shows us this glimpse of a young girl and we are reminded, she’s not a gown up yet. The agents are all totally accurate, the actors as well. The book is like an onion that has layers and layers of story. I guess i could go on, but this story is truly phenomenal and it is an unbelievable ride. Hurry with Book 3 please!!
Barbara was born in New York City and but now lives somewhere else. Starting her career by writing tweens and YA books, she wound up in television writing soap operas for some years. Barbara then wrote a couple cookbooks and a nonfiction book on knitting. She returned to fiction and wrote romantic comedies.
When digital publishing became a possibility, Barbara leaped at the opportunity and has never looked back. In addition to the 15 traditionally published books she wrote, in digital format Barbara has something to appeal to almost every reader from Mature YAs like the Bad Apple series and the Flash series, to contemporary romances like Love in the Air published by Amazon/Montlake, and Unspeakably Desirable, Nothing Serious and Almost Breathing.
