Violet Samms is a girl whose life is defined by movies. Her whole world is a movie. Unlike all the other girls in LA, she wished to write the movies, not star in them. Then she meets her leading lady; Claire. Claire is a new comer to LA and does not fit the mold either. She worships glitter and poetry and wears wings on her back. Together they make each other stronger but when Hollywood finds Violet, Claire is left hurt until the two girls figure out their life again.

This is one of the best books of all time. This book has changed my life and everytime I reread it it helps me to grow a little more. I bring different things to myself each time I read this book. This first time I read is I had lost my best friends to some odd twist of fate or teenage girlhood; with this reading I found that maybe those girls were not right and that I would still find my other half. The second time I read this book Iw as coming out to myself about being bi; Violet and Claire were the perfect copuple. This last read they were the perfect friends that I still wish I could find in my own life.

This was the first book I read by this author who is now among my favorites. FLB's writing style is electric and eclectic and is amazing and alive in all ways. I highly reccommend this novel.
