Summary
At twenty-three, Ruth Saunders headed west with her seventy-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to be hired as a television writer. Four years later, she?s hit the jackpot when she gets "the call." The sitcom she wrote, The Next Best Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie's going to be the show-runner. But her dreams of Hollywood success are threatened by an avalanche of disasters: demanding actors, number-crunching executives, and an unrequited crush on a boss. And that doesn't even include her grandmother's impending nuptials. Set against the fascinating backdrop of Los Angeles show business culture, with an insider's ear and eye for writer's rooms, bad behavior backstage and set politics, Jennifer Weiner's new novel is a rollicking ride on the Hollywood roller coaster and a heartfelt story about what it's like for a young woman to love, and lose, in the land where dreams come true
Summary
