I really like Sarah Skilton’s writing so much!. A few years ago, she wrote a mystery that was set at a douchy LA-area magicians club that I really enjoyed, and also very much recommend, and I’m delighted to be giving away three copies of her new romance today. I cannot think of a book that is more in the GFY wheelhouse.
Here’s the description:
Holly Danner has a complicated relationship with fame. It’s not easy being the only cast member of a 1990s song-and-dance show who didn’t become famous. When she was eleven, she used to do anything for a laugh (or at least a laugh-track) on “Diego and the Lion’s Den.” If she talked about it–which she almost never does–Holly might explain how her childhood best friends came to dominate the worlds of pop music, film, and TV while she was relegated to a few near-misses and a nanny gig for her niece. She’d even be telling the truth about making peace with the whole thing years ago.
But when she finds out there’s a 25th anniversary for the show planned–a televised reunion, clip show, and panel–and she wasn’t invited, it’s time for an impromptu road trip to crash the event and set the record straight. Three problems: she’s currently in Internet Rehab (perhaps she’s not quite as well-adjusted as she believes…), she has no cash, and the only person who can get her across the country in time is Thom Parker, a handsome, infuriatingly level-headed patient who doesn’t think she should confront her famous ex-friends.
FAME ADJACENT is a contemporary, realistic, and humorous look at love, friendship, and fame, as seen through the eyes of a girl who lived it–from the sidelines.
Here’s the book’s Amazon listing, but of course, it will be available once it comes out next month from everywhere you buy your books!
THE TASK: I have three copies to give away. As usual, I’ll be picking the winner at random. But to enter, please comment with your answer to this question: Imagine you were on a TV show as a teen. WHAT SHOW WAS IT? (You can disregard the laws of time and space for this, if you want to. For example, you can pick Riverdale even if you are currently 95 years old.)
THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday, March 22nd. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you.
