"An unforgettable teen heroine…"
Anna is a 15 year old girl who has had a pretty crap year so she steals a credit card and books a seat on a flight to L.A. to stay with her sister. She soon realises that she shouldn't be there but she didn't buy a return ticket so has no option but to stay. She has no money and when she is offered a job researching the infamous Manson Girls for a film she accepts, although she is not comfortable doing the research. There are plenty of glittering parties and lots of fake smiles but there's a dark, unpleasant side too that is dangerous. Anna didn't expect this and this summer will not be how she envisaged it. It is a coming of age book, although it won't be obvious whilst you are reading it. It's only when the book has been read and you are thinking about it, and you will! It's not a frothy beach read but nevertheless it is a compelling read about a young girl in a dark dangerous situation.
