Yet, as strange as her life seems, Scotty doesn't mind the everyday quirks as much as she hates knowing Charley has a secret. Having adjusted well to her self-education and perfected the art of sneaking cheese into the kitchen, Scotty only wishes she knew why Charley whispers on the phone and always seems to be on the run. In the meantime, Scotty posts her opinions about celebrities on her anonymous blog, and her favorite heartthrob, Seth Haas, just happens to be working on the same movie as her mother.
If there's one thing Samson has perfected in her writing voice, it is the art of speaking bluntly when a situation calls for it. The character she has created in Scotty Dawn allows the perfect opportunity for straight-forward, no-nonsense (and sometimes sarcastic) looks at the Hollywood culture. More importantly, Samson includes profound messages about body image, self esteem, and integrity through Scotty's witty critiques of the movie industry. Samson's style shines in Hollywood Nobody.
Though the plot seems scattered and almost too mysterious at first, the snappy dialogue keeps it interesting, and the story pays off in the end with a satisfying explanation for all the secrets. Another thing Samson handles well is the incorporation of God and church themes. Scotty doesn't know if she believes in God, but her questions on the matter don't seem forced or thrown in as afterthoughts. Samson creates a believable picture of what a young girl may go through in searching for truth.
Book One finishes with just the right balance of closure and cliff-hanger to leave readers content, yet excited about the rest of the series. Hollywood Nobody begs to be read by young teens especially, but it is recommended to anyone interested in a unique story and an honest look at the rich and the famous.
