Formerly a bookseller and high school English teacher, she now writes and parents full time. A San Francisco Bay Area native, Nina lives with her family in Oakland, California.
My take on the book:
Emi Price is a high school graduate teen working as an intern production designer in one Hollywood movie set. She gets her brother’s apartment as her graduation gift to do something epic. The story is about Emi finding a mysterious letter at the estate sale of a Hollywood film legend Clyde Jones and how with the help of her best friend Charlotte she succeeds in uncovering the secret life of that movie star and how through this she discovers her true love.
This is my first lesbian YA book and I must say it is a very cute love story. Emi dealing with her ex and struggling to find her love was so real that I also felt for her at one point of the story. I loved how Emi was so dedicated to uncovering the mystery of Clyde’s letter and how she devotes herself for the Production designing of the set. Through her, I also got insights on how movies are made and that gave me one whole different perspective on the film industries. The storyline is simple, refreshing, and was not at all dragging. Overall I enjoyed reading this book and would love to explore some more books in this genre!
