I Don't Know How the Story Ends by J.B. Cheaney - ESSENTIAL

J.B. Cheaney I Don't Know How the Story Ends, 270 pages. Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, 2015. Language: G (0 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG.

Isobel Ransom goes to visit her aunt in California with her younger sister and her mother. Her father is away at war and hasn't sent letters home for a while. She in anticipating that all it will be is homesickness and boredom. Instead she is in for a funny, action packed, and touching experience. While she is there she meets her cousin Ranger who is making a movie. He asks for Isobel and her sister, Sylvie, to be in it. Ranger didn't know what his movie was going to be about, until Isobel's father comes home injured.

I liked all the action of the book. I like how the idea of Hollywood was incorporated with the book. Another thing I enjoyed was her father went away to war and she described the memories of the laughter he gave her.
