A golden feminist-fiction debut! Three women–the wife, the work wife, and the former wife of a big-time Hollywood director–each prepare themselves for a long day filled with speeches, pitches and an extravagant Hollywood party where their worlds collide and ugly truths enter the limelight. I was blown away with the amount of character, depth, and deep understanding of the emotional and physical abuse that women have suffered through for a chance at stardom in Hollywood. This book is a very fiery reminder that the #MeToo movement is still as impactful as when it started in 2017, and there are still a lot of silent voices–not just victims, voices–waiting to be heard, to be recognized, to become. You’ll want to finish this in one swoop. ~ Reviewed by Kirstin Swartz
