Raising star Aaron Summers learns the real action on set is happening off camera. Ignored by critics favourite, Jasmine, out classed by gifted unknown Noah,
Aaron wonders if talent is going to be enough to survive the shoot when he realizes someone is trying to sabotage the very film that could make them all stars.
The novel is based on Sheelagh's own experiences of working with young actors as a youth worker.
This book was great. It was different, mysterious and cunning; it showed the ups and downs of fame. The divas, the wannabes, the co-star crushes, the screaming fans, the fights and homework. Towards the end it became a real page-turner, finding out about the saboteur.
A must-read for those who love a good mystery. I think I'm going to read it again!
