Sdb177yahoo.Com | 3 comments YA semi-romance semi-mystery about girl who is growing up in the film industry because her (possibly divorced) father is a film director and she's spent most of her childhood on movie sets. Lots of insidery filmmaking jargon/tips sprinkled into the plot. Strong romance and/or mystery plot elements; possibly a series of books, and the titles may have been slight puns on movie-making terminology. International locations.

Tab (tabbrown) | 4967 comments The Maggie Ledoux series fits a little. Joan Lowery Nixon The first book in the series is Maggie, Too

Do you remember the cover?
Time period story takes place?


Sdb177yahoo.Com | 3 comments Time period is contemporary/ modern-day. There is a long section early on where the concept in filmmaking of "crossing the line" camera work is explained.

Thanks for the tip but I think the action stays in the world of film.
