The writing is beautiful and evocative. I found myself drawn in to the power struggles, changes of fortune and sudden turns of events (Oh boy, director Ben Hughes sure took a risk. You'll see if you read the book.) Harper is one of the nicest heroines I've come across, truly thoughtful and gracious. When Helen says that Har...more

This was a refreshing read: the style of writing, the story - it was truly enjoyable. I really appreciated that the author was able to portray characters who had real relationships with God without making it seem forced. The characters were believable and the descriptions of a nature that allowed the reader to immerse themselves in the settings.
There were some issues of personal morality in the characters which I disagreed with, but in general, I came away from the book with the feeling of sati...more

The only reason she survived financially was because of residuals from a cold medicine commercial. After giving her heart to the Lord, everything starts to change. She's hired to be the understudy in a play on Broadway working along with her best friend Avri...more

I'm not normally a big fan of first person narrative, but I loved Harper's voice. She's just someone with whom you can connect and relate. I liked her. Her faith and desire to serve God and follow His path for her is strong, but she's not perfect. Her regret at her inability to apologize after confronting Tabby...more
I adored this story because I got lost in it's pages and lived in an entertaining alternate reality while I was reading. The character development was impeccable and the faith element was perfectly done. I said this before, but the romance literally took my bre...more

Screen Play is a touching and wonderful novel, filled with inspiring and very heart-warming characters. I loved how real the emotions are in Screen Play. Coppernoll paints a picture that you can easily relate to, even if nothing like a situation you've ever been in before. The characters and the story are relatable in a way that many authors aren't able to achieve.
Thoughout the struggles and dramas in Screen Play I found myself always pulli...more
