Product Description:The second book in the Above the Line series finds independent filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison at the center of Hollywood wheeling and dealing. The two friends discover that all that glitters is not gold—and that success in Tinsel Town could cost them everything—their relationships as well as their ideals. 
From the Back Cover
Filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison have completed their first feature film, and Hollywood is buzzing with the news. In the wake of that excitement, the producers acquire rights to a novel that has all the ingredients they want for their next project. At the same time they cross paths with a well-connected player who introduces them to the right people, and suddenly every studio in town wants to talk to Chase and Keith. The producers’ dreams are on the verge of coming true, but Chase’s marriage is strained and Keith’s daughter — Andi Ellison — is making questionable choices in her quest for stardom. The producers are gaining respect and are on the verge of truly changing culture through the power of film — but is the change worth the cost? 

My Review:  Check out the promo video on YouTube for a good preview of the book.  As always, Karen Kingsbury has a winner.  She seems to connect well to her reader.  If I had a middle school or high school daughter at home still, I would not hesitate to give them this book.   Even as a grandmother, I enjoyed it!  The book deals with real life issues of love, family, temptation, sin, and the human condition.  Kingsbury has a way of keeping you reading and wanting more.  I think living near L.A. and recently seeing the moving Fireproof and all of  it’s sequels, this book was especially interesting to me.  The main characters in this book want to make a difference with their films, just like the church in Georgia wants to make a difference with their films.  I recommend this book highly – another great summer read!
