“Don’t believe anything they say.”

Those were the last words that Annie spoke to Alice before turning her back on their family and vanishing without a trace. Alice spent four years waiting and wondering when the impossibly glamorous sister she idolized would return to her–and what their Hollywood-insider parents had done to drive her away.

When Annie does turn up, the blond, broken stranger lying in a coma has no answers for her. But Alice isn’t a kid anymore, and this time she won’t let anything stand between her and the truth, no matter how ugly. The search for those who beat Annie and left her for dead leads Alice into a treacherous world of tough-talking private eyes, psychopathic movie stars, and troubled starlets–and onto the trail of a young runaway who is the sole witness to an unspeakable crime. What this girl knows could shut down a criminal syndicate and put Annie’s attacker behind bars–if Alice can find her first. And she isn’t the only one looking

  1. Oooh, this sounds interesting, and the film noir touch/Hollywood’s Golden Agesetting is something I haven’t had the chance to read much of, but sounds fun and fascinating.
    Hope you get it!

    Happy New Years, Cyn!! : )

  2. Definitely sounds interesting that a YA novel will be focused on the noir backdrop – it reminds me of The Diviners by Libba Bray!
