Young Adult Review: I don’t Know How the Story Ends

***4/5 stars- Loved it

In the early days of Hollywood, a motley crew of youngsters seek to reckon the world around them and create a film of their own.

Recommended readers:

  •  Everyone, but especially Young Adult readers
  • Anyone interested in the early days of Hollywood

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


With their father away at war, staid narrator Isobel Ransom, her precocious little sister Sylvie, and their mysterious and high-mannered mother head to Hollywood to while away the summer at Aunt Buzzy’s, and that’s just the start of the entertaining array of characters that populate J.B. Cheaney’s Young Adult novel. The girls are quickly drawn into the wild-west world of new Hollywood by their cousin Ranger Bell, a young aspiring filmmaker, with heartwarming and entertaining results. Though written for a younger audience, this little charmer has all of the good stuff:  the power of framing a story, coming of age, and characters who leap off the page.
