Monday, March 21, 2011
Yeah, he chased me all the way to the boat. But the way he stood at the end of the dock as we sped away, hands on his knees, catching his breath…am I wrong about him? You can’t be, Scotty. He’s been chasing you for several years now. You’ve heard what Charley said. Just get into town and run for cover.

Book: Finding Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson, NavPress, 2008
Finding Hollywood Nobody (Hollywood Nobody Series, Book 2) 
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 13-19
Subjects: Family Relationships, Fame and Popularity, Dating Relationships, Teen Pregnancy, Prayer, Belief in God
Summary:  Scotty and Charley are on set in Texas working on another film when Biker Guy makes multiple appearances, making Scotty and Charley all the more nervous about him. Scotty makes friends with a few of the locals, discovering a potential romance, a girl her age who is pregnant and homeless, a guy who is teaching her some things about music for her homeschooling, and a drama teacher who has potential to be a pretty impressive actor herself. Then Seth comes for a visit, but gets more tied up in Karissa than in the one he came to visit in the first place. All of this is pushing Scotty’s questions about God closer and closer to resolution. When a tragedy happens, Scotty determines once and for all to figure out who He is and what He has to do with her.
Notes: Scotty is on the a spiritual journey and while that’s not necessarily the main focus of the book, it does play a part in it. Scotty does some drastic things to get God to listen to her and learns a lesson about prayer and how God listens to anyone who comes to Him. This book also deals with a teen girl who is pregnant, family relationships between Charley and Scotty, friendships between Seth and Scotty, and the hint of romance between Seth and others.
