What's not to Love?--I'm Just Sayin'! Aug 22, 2008
Romancing Hollywood Nobody is a deliciously fun read. Lisa Samson's quirky heroine, Scotty Dawn, had me ROTFLOL on every page. Her satirical tongue rivals Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet both in savvy wit and pert opinions. A stylish blogging teen with brains and beauty. What's not to love?--I'm just sayin'!
3rd in series another delight Aug 1, 2008
Romancing Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson is the third book her YA series starring Scotty Dawn. And Scotty is really growing up, having her father around has helped enormously. Charley, Scotty's grandma, is still working as a movie food preparer, but this time instead of working for independent film maker (and family friend) Jeremy, she's working with a notoriously bad tempered Hollywood bigwig. Charley is pushed to her limits until a handsome Scottish actor sweeps her off of her feet. Scotty is facing some romance of her own with bagpipe-playing Angus. Scotty is trying more and more to the right thing, although that causes her to be a bit nosey on occasion. Her faith is growing too, and that makes her rethink running her blog Hollywood Nobody, which is similar to a rated PG Perez Hilton. After reading about Scotty's realization, I gave up my own addiction to Perez. She's right, the gossip industry has sprung up around rejoicing over other people's sins and troubles. Samson's writing is always a joy to read, especially the dialogue.

Warning: PLOT SPOILERS AHEAD ROMANCING HOLLYWOOD NOBODY is the third book in the Hollywood Nobody series. The series follows Scotty, a teenage girl, as she travels the states with her grandmother, Charley. They move from movie set to movie set where Charley is employed as a food stylist for movies. But this isn't the only peculiarity in Scotty's world. Only recently finding her father, she learns that her mother might still be alive and her father is dedicating himself to finding the truth. Scotty keeps herself busy with her voracious appetite for reading and penning her blog site where she dishes on the Hollywood scene. With her inside advantage, she gives her opinion on everything and everyone that makes up Hollywood. But when challenged that she is nothing more than a gossip and someone who spouts off about people she doesn't even know, she begins to wonder if her blogging is really serving a purpose or just self-satisfying. Obviously from the title, romance makes a strong showing in book three, but not in the way readers of book one and two would imagine. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Hollywood Nobody series. Though it's not really the genre I lean towards, it was entertaining none the less. So entertaining in fact, I quickly checked Lisa's blog site to confirm if there would be a book four. Thankfully it was a yes. Hollywood Nobody is a great Young Adult series, and one that adults will enjoy as well.
A good read even if you haven't read book #1 Jul 13, 2008
Lisa Samson's "Romancing Hollywood Nobody" is loaded with lots of witty writing and intellectual contemporary references. Samson uses a cool teen diary format for the book that also contains a few weblog entries by the main character, Scotty. I'm somewhat skeptical of love triangles - especially in a teen novel, but the romance was well written. The only aspect of the book I really wasn't crazy about the "Today's Rant" sections because I'm currently studying "Lord, Change My Attitude Before It's Too Late" by James MacDonald. I've become very sensitive to grumbling, and don't believe we as Christians should encourage this behavior. I especially loved the Brendan Frasier quote and the father-daughter relationship between Scotty and Ezra.
I love this series! Jul 12, 2008
I got this book in the mail and MADE myself finish the book I was in the middle of before I allowed myself to start Romancing Hollywood Nobody (I thought it was going to kill me to wait!!!)
Boy was this book worth the wait. Scotty is back with Charley, Seth, Dad, Jeremy and some new characters as well (oh yea, the Karissa is back too). Lisa Samson does not disappoint with this series of books - I do think you can read any of them as stand alone books - but why miss out on the charm of the series? Do yourself a favor and start with book #1 and go straight through - you will be captivated by the plot, the writing style, the characters, even the settings. And can I just say that it is an injustice to all fiction fans everywhere to classify this series as young adult - I love them and I'm in my 30's and my mother-in-law loves them and she is in her 60's! Don't deny yourself one of life's pleasures - read these books!
