Lily is discovered by a big-name director when she’s auditioning for a role in a toothpaste commercial. He wants her for his new movie, which is great except for the fact that it’s shooting in Los Angeles and Lily lives in Vancouver. With the help of her Chinese grandmother, she convinces her parents to let her go to LA with her agent as a chaperone. But when she gets there, she finds out that if she wants to be more than the flavor of the week, she’s going to have to pay a price that may be way too high.

Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group - July 21, 2014
"Action-packed and fast-paced."

"Lily is a likeable character and readers will enjoy this story of her freshness...Readers who are interested in acting or the dream of a career in the arts will enjoy this story."
CM Magazine - January 10, 2014
"Will appeal to many readers, particular those who are interested in the stage and theatre. In Lily, Langston has created an authentic, lively character with whom readers will be able to relate. The realistic portrayal of the acting scenes also adds tension and depth to the story."
