Library Journal Express Reviews
Frances Banks is trying to make it as an actress in New York City, and she has only six months left until her self-imposed deadline. Listeners follow along on her journeys through the first part of 1995 as she goes through her acting classes, auditions, first jobs, relationship highs and lows, and, ultimately, the realization of knowing she is on the right path. The author's own narration is outstanding. Playing with subtleties and exaggerations, Graham will have you laughing out loud, swearing in frustration, and cheering along as Franny makes her way through this pivotal point in her young life. Verdict This book will appeal to most fiction listeners as its universal themes of hope, pursuit of dreams, and figuring out life are things for which we all strive. ["With insight, care, and an abundance of humor, actress Graham (Gilmore Girls; Parenthood) demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent. Franny's struggles are so real, so relatable, and at times so familiar that one wonders just how much of this first novel is autobiographical. Recommended for all aspiring actors and for any reader who has ever wondered about the life of an actor before she becomes a star," read the review of the New York Times best-selling Ballantine hc, LJ 4/15/13.--Ed.]--Stephanie Charlefour, Wixom P.
