THIS IS NOT THE FINAL VERSION OF THE BOOK - Yes this version is 'finished' BUT I'm working on one that has scenes that have been expanded.
But please - read, enjoy - find out what happens to Earli Byrd
Young starlets dream of glitz and glamour and the flash of a thousand cameras. But after the red carpet is pulled away, the designer dresses are returned to those who loaned them out, and the cricket-like clicking of the cameras fades away, those elite few - the handful among a million wannabes – must face reality and live their version of normal lives in a land where make believe is simply another day at the office. However, for rising star Earli Byrd, who has spent the last ten years of her life pretending to be someone she isn't, reality is the last thing she wants to face. And yet every time she looks in the mirror, she can't help but see the face of Earline Parnell, the poor, white trash, ‘nothing girl’ from the run-down trailer park in rural Mississippi, staring back at her, demanding that she not be ignored. Nothing--no amount of alcohol or drugs--will ever fill the void where her childhood innocence should reside. And when Earli's world comes crashing down around her, she finds herself alone and standing on the edge of a deadly precipice staring down. How could this promising, beautiful young on-the-rise star have come to find herself at this point of desperation? Will she take the step to end her heartache? Or will she take a step back? [mehr]
