2014 book 74

Nina Lacour's Everything Leads to You
LaCour's latest (after Hold Still and The Disenchantments) just further cements her status as one of my favorite writers. This one centers on 18-year-old Emi, a set design intern for a production company in Hollywood (and very talented at what she does), and what happens when she and her best friend discover a letter from a famous deceased actor and start to solve an old mystery. It is also a completely adorable love story between two girls AND a fascinating look at the behind-the-scenes stuff in movies (SO FASCINATING!). I just loved everything about this--cute and functional families, realistic relationships, honest communication, and so on. I really feel like LaCour would be great for A.S. King fans, particularly those who liked Ask The Passengers. A.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in May.
