Ruth did not have a near-death experience in this one, so what was the purpose? She and Tom did manage to save a movie actress from drowning and then Ruth just happened to write a couple of successful movie scripts.

Ruth's school is the set of a Hollywood movie. I have a couple others in the series and need / want to read them.
