The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner
ISBN: 9781451617757
Ruth Saunders survived the crash that killed both of her parents. After many surgeries to reconstruct her face while having her grandmother come back from FL to MA to take care of her. She's got so much money she does not have to work a day in her life but after
school she sells her grandmother, Rachel on moving to CA with hopes of selling her script. They both love CA and fit right into what they want to do.
She's hooked up with other writers and agencies that keep her busy while not only working on her project but theirs.
She falls in and out of love and fantasizing about others.
Love how we get to see what really happens when a script is accepted, taking auditions and then meetings and finally the tapes and that's only for 3 shows. If those pass then onto maybe 13 more for the series.
The thing of who's got the most power comes into it.
Love reading how the houses and apartments are lavishly decorated, overlooking the ocean scenes.
Can believe what happens to the script over the months and due to the actors they get to play the parts, some of the script has to be rewritten. By the end it's almost not even the same script that the network agreed upon. hmmmm
Love the ending and I won't spoil it for others but this never happens to a script, glad it did here.
Love the love scenes, hot steamy sex.
