REVIEW FROM BOOKS FOR HER:
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.
