Hollywood teen actress, Liana Marie, loves smart student athlete, Manuel. But when Lia's scripts speak for her and drama becomes her life, can Lia and Manny find the strength to run their own lines and shape their new roles?

I'm actress Liana Marie Michael. My last memoir, Starlet's Web, shows how Hollywood's obsession with youthful beauty made my actress-mother stay competitive. Athletes use steroids. Actors use plastic surgery and anti-aging drugs. So now I'm a physical mess inside, dealing with it, dating Manuel, and working.
In this memoir, I have brain surgery, feel alive at Grandma's Montana ranch, go home and act. Manuel and I go through marriage preparation classes and feel impossibly happy as we learn to accept each other. It's a great summer until consequences turn dire.
I believe that dwelling on pain is a waste of time. Indecision is exhausting. I want to write my own future. But I'm only eighteen years old. In a world where an actress is a product and everyone is a critic, can our young love survive? Should it?
BLUEINK REVIEW: "YA fans will absolutely want to check out this series, where they'll find a new heroine to root for in the flawed but sympathetic Liana."
