Review of the book Goodbye, Hollywood Nobody: A Novel by Lisa Samson

I am a youth leader at our church for 6th grade to 12th grade girls. I thought that it would be fun to read this book because I am always interested in finding good, clean books for teen girls to read that are relevant to the culture in which they live. This book did just that!  It is the fourth and final book in a series. I would like to go back and read the first through third books because although she did a great job at explaining the past events, I was still lost a few times. It was an easy read and had a lot of great encouragement and lessons for young girls and adults. One of those lessons was that God can help you love anyone because on our own, we can't. The main character Scotty is an amazing young girl whose has obviously gone through many trials in her young life. She is a junior in high school but she has the wisdom of an older girl. She is faced with the trials of loss, dating, and loving the unlovable. She learns lessons in kindness, loving someone enough to let them go, and control. I loved this book! I would totally recommend it to a teen girl and her mom for reading!

  1. You just gave me the sweetest comment ever! Thank you! Whenever I'm about to post, I imagine my pastor's two teen daughters reading it and that gives me a discerning eye when editing. It's so awesome to find more blogs that glorify the Lord! Such encouragement.
