really liked it

"I'd like to say I didn't understand what I was agreeing to, but I think it would be a lie-- even back then I knew I was giving a part of myself away."

This is a really well-written story about an actress who achieves early success thanks to a director who takes her under his wing. It's the story of how he also sexually abused her and used her and took advantage of her.

It's not as dark as it might sound and it's really well written. What I liked the most about this book was the tone (which I don't think I've ever written in a review before.) It had this perfect tone the whole way through where you felt the low level discomfort and unease the character had the whole time. Sometimes it escalated and I was on the edge of my seat and other times I could breathe more easily with her.

I was rooting for her 100% of the time. Really well-done.
