Publisher's Summary

"I want you to do something with the place. Something epic." 

After being entrusted with her brother's Los Angeles apartment for the summer as a graduation gift, Emi Price isn't sure how to fulfill his one condition: that something great take place there while he's gone. Emi may be a talented young production designer, already beginning to thrive in the competitive film industry, but she still feels like an average teen, floundering when it comes to romance.  

But when she and her best friend, Charlotte, discover a mysterious letter at the estate sale of a Hollywood film legend, Emi must move beyond the walls of her carefully crafted world to chase down the loose ends of a movie icon’s hidden life, leading her to uncover a decades’ old secret and the potential for something truly epic: love.

Like reading about a friend.

I liked that this book was just about normal people. And it read like it. And that it never veered into erotica, even though it was emotionally real and so much of the thread of the story was romance. It was refreshing to read a love story about two queer girls that wasn't some hot and heavy sex fantasy. The story was a mystery, a drama, and a romance, all taking place in a relatable setting, like it could have happened to you and your friend instead of Emi and Charlotte. Narrator did a pretty good job--I will say I could hardly handle her attempt at a South African accent, and for some reason her voice for Ava grated on me as well. But honestly, aside from that she did a great job.

Very well written and performed

This is a very well written and narrated book. I was drawn in from the start, all the characters are so real and full of hope. I recommend this book to anyone wanting a book full of emotion and love...no sex in story...just sweet and heartfelt. Also, this Narrator is one of the best I have heard...she was perfect for this story.

Such a beautifully written story for any age

This is a rare 5 star rating for me. I truly just loved this book. It's the story of a young woman, Emi, who is working as a set designer for a play and is going through a break up while continuing to work with her ex-girlfriend. Emi and her best friend, Charlotte, find a letter in an estate sale from an old Hollywood movie mogul and set out to deliver the letter to his next of kin. Then enters Ava a down and out aspiring -but out of work actress who has been treated unkindly by her adoptive mother. But the real themes in this book are so much bigger- so much more intimate and intricate and so delicately woven that you will find tears in your eyes for no reason while you read. I loved the friendship between Emi and Charlotte. I also found the old Hollywood setting so dazzling and fun. The little mystery woven into the plot with the letter was brilliant and keeps you listening to find out who and why. But ultimately, it's the endearing Emi and the relationship that blooms with Ava with such poetic subtlety that you find yourself holding your breath at the end to see if it just might work...This really is just a heartwarming read. I can't say enough good things about it. You don't have to be young or gay to appreciate the kindness and compassion and optimism of Emi's heart.

Amazing

This book was so beautiful and wonderfully written. I have never used audible before, but the way that the narrator reads it is incomparable. Her voice has emotion and you feel more like she’s telling you this story about her life rather than reading a book to you. This book, whether you listen to it or read it yourself, is absolutely perfect.
