Another Great YA Summer Title

Everything Leads to You

With a whirlwind tour of the LA movie industry and a taste of teen romance as well as a bit of a mystery, this is a wonderful summer read that hits on some emotional issues but in a very accessible way. Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still and The Disenchantments has put together another wonderful story. In this book, we are introduced to Emi Price, a precociously talented budding set designer for a major movie studio in Los Angeles. Though she got the job through her brother, her talent is leading her to bigger and better success.
