A brief synopsis--
Growing up unattractive and nerdy in her Mississippi hometown, Davie wishes her life could be more like 16 Candles. Finally, a school prank goes too far, and Davie runs away, only to reinvent herself as a successful lounge singer hundreds of miles away: in Hollywood. Just when everything seems to be going her way, her high school crush walks in, and more importantly, he doesn't recognize her. Davie can't bring herself to end the fantasy, and just as they're about to ride off into the sunset, the past comes back with a vengeance, threatening to crush Davie's dreams forever.I'm very much into buying from local bookstores when I can, so I'm going to try and find it at Skylight Books today. Maybe Vroman's or Book Soup has it too. (UPDATE: I got it at Vroman's! They have 5 more copies so go buy them out.)
I know you can get it online at Powell's, Alibris, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.
If you're in L.A. and want to hear Ernessa read in person, she's going to be at Barnes & Noble at The Grove next Monday, June 28. She's also going to be at Vroman's in Pasadena on Monday, July 19.
