Hollywood Nobody - A Great Teen Book Series

4 stars for Hollywood Nobody Book Series

Goodbye Hollywood Nobody (#4 Final)


I had the opportunity to read the Teen novel, Hollywood Nobody. It is the first adult novel from Lisa Samson as well as the first in the Hollywood Nobody Series.

  1. Hollywood Nobody
  2. Finding Hollywood Nobody
  3. Romancing Hollywood Nobody
  4. Goodbye, Hollywood Nobody

I found Hollywood Nobody to be a surprisingly refreshing read that is obviously targeted for young adult readers, but enjoyable still for folks my age (undisclosed :). It is categorized in Christian Fiction, but not the type to force religion down your throat. I personally love the cover as if fits very well with the inner chronicles of a quirky 15 year old girl (Scotty) on a never ending adventure with her "weird" mother, and food designer, Charly Dawn.

Written in blogging style, which I find fitting (because Scotty has a blog) and more entertaining than seeing "Chapter 5" , Scotty , a 15 year old girl, shares with readers her account of life and the strange things in it, especially her own.....which you will find is quite different from the average teenager. Scotty keeps a blog about Hollywood and in it you'll find some funny inserts of her thoughts on some real celebrities she meets, or just observes, on the various movies sets.

She and her Mother travel around from movie set to movie set for Charly's job as a food stylist. Throughout the book, and their travels, there is an unknown person that they seem to be running/hiding from that kept me reading because I wanted to know what the underlying story was to that. What was in Charly and Scotty's past that kept them on the constant go? Towards the end of the book there is an unexpected reveal that put a lump in my throat. I wasn't expecting it, but you'll have to read it to see. I love mystery.


My two oldest sons, 13 and 10, also read this, mostly because they ran out of their own books, and actually they enjoyed it as well. They said it was probably more for girls because there was "girl stuff " in it. But it gave them something to read.


Overall, I enjoyed this book, even though it is geared more towards younger audiences, and I would recommend it for any teenage girl, or parent wanting a clean and enjoyable book for their teen.

    It sounds like a good book and series. I will have to try it out and have my 13 year old daughter read it. Thanks!
