Alice in La La Land
Author: Sophie Lee
Goodreads Rating: 2.51
Publisher: Penguin Random House Australia
A series of disasters in her home town causes actress Alice Evans to flee to Hollywood, where she finds that life is not the glittery stuff of dreams. She is forced to navigate her way around the city in a cheap, Japanese rental car, lurching from one audition to the next. She has no money in the bank, no friends, and her auditions continually fail to impress. She crashes in an apartment in the decidedly nonglamorous Miracle Mile district with an out-of-work swimsuit model and two bellicose cats who have a habit of invading her suitcase when she's not looking. Alice begins to suspect she's come to the worst place on earth to turn her luck around, but she's hell bent on her mission to succeed—until a chance meeting causes her to rethink her priorities.
