CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Unscripted Joss Byrd by Lygia Day Peñaflor

Release date: August 23rd 2016
Publisher: Roaring Brook
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via 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.
