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 Big Thing’, has gotten the green light. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush, and her grandmother's impending nuptials.

Professional reviews

"Jennifer Weiner's new novel is a rollicking ride on the Hollywood rollercoaster, and a heartfelt story about what it's like for a young woman to love, and lose, in the land where dreams come true. Praise for the author: 'Jennifer Weiner is a class act. She writes with confidence and style' LISA JEWELL ‘ Weiner balances romantic formula with fresh humour, deft characterizations and literary sensibility.' THE GUARDIAN"
