The Hollywood Sisters: Backstage by Mary Wilcox

Jessica's sister Eva is THE teenager in Hollywood at the moment. She's turned her small role on the TV show 'Two Sisters' into a starring role. She's got offers for more roles coming her way. But she's also getting some bad press - the kind that only an insider could hand off to the gossip columnist. Who on set is selling Eva out? Jessica is determined to sleuth around and discover the culprit.

'Backstage Pass' was a cute, fun, fluffy read. I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes glimpses of a sitcom in the making. My main complaint was that the boyfriend/girlfriend relationship between the main character and one of the actors seemed sudden and unrealistic - a bit laughable. The writing, by no means spectacular, moved the story along at a good pace and gave me characters to cheer for. A good beach read, especially for those interested in acting.
