Everything Leads to You

LaCour, Nina. Everything Leads to You. Dutton Juvenile, 2014.

Emi works on set designs in Hollywood, and on a hunt to find just the right pieces for a particular set, she finds a letter from a famous actor. This mystery begs to be solved, so she spends time tracking down people and making connections while still working on her set design. And she tries not to start dating the same girl again who has broken her heart over and over.

This wasn't a bad book, but it's weird to read about the uber-privileged. Not many teens get to work on actual movie sets, and most of them go to school instead of driving around to actors' estate sales to purchase set pieces. That facet lead an air of unreality to this particular story, although the actual plot - a girl who tries to not date the same girl who's already broken her heart - was a good one. This would be a good book for fans of chick lit.

Recommended for: teens
Red Flags: none
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
