The Hollywood Lights novels and novella feature different lead characters, but the same group of friends. The first novel, Entanglement, has Greta as the main character. The second novel, Chasing Chaos, has Daphne, Greta's best friend, as the lead character, and takes place 5 years later. The third novel, Fallout Girl, has Miranda, Daphne's roommate, as the main character, and takes place just as Chasing Chaos ends. The novellas also have different lead characters (L&E is Daphne, HTS is Miranda.) Plenty of readers read them out of order. I write them intending them to stand alone. I hope this answers your question. ;) (less)
