Read Hello, Sunshine Online Free - A Prep School Girl with a Hollywood Dream
Becca Harrington is a reject. After being rebuffed by every college on her list, she needs a fresh start, so she packs up everything and moves to LA, giving herself one year to land an acting gig or kill herself trying.
Unfortunately, not everything turns out as planned, and after a few grueling months, LA is looking like the worst idea ever. As hard as she tries, Becca can’t land an agent, she's running out of cash, and her mom is hounding her to apply to more schools. In an act of desperation, Becca and her friend Marisol start posting short videos online—with the help of their adorable filmmaker neighbor, Raj—and the videos catch the attention of a TV producer. Could this be it? Her big break? Or will she have to move back home with nothing but some bad head shots and a monstrous credit-card bill?
Becca may not get the Hollywood ending she was hoping for, but perhaps she’ll learn there’s more than one way to achieve her dream.
Readers will love every page of this funny, romantic, aspirational, and ultimately triumphant novel about a girl who just wants to make it on her own.

3.5 stars - This was a really fun read but I still love the Nantucket series more.

I actually really enjoyed this book, it put a smile on my face and was full of so much energy, which matches the lovely colourful cover perfectly as well! I loved Becca, I thought she was a great character and I really like the general feel of the story and how fast paced it was.
Full review to co...

I really wanted to love this book, but I think I must get getting old, as some parts were not for me. I had higher expectations from a Disney publisher. This book is compared to a YA version of La La Land but this is the R-rated version, as far as content is concerned. I guess I was just taken by...

Two stars for the beginning, three stars for the middle, and two stars for the end. The middle evens out the other two, though.
In the beginning Becca is ridiculous. She's so green with everything! How do you literally move across the country and assume you will be able to live off a coup...

0.5, and just no. No, and more no. Hello, Goodbye.
0.5 stars... only because it took place in LA/Hollywood. Other than that... well, let me list some reasons. I am still on vacation and I frankly don't want to think of this book any more, so I will just make a list of reasons why I didn't like thi...

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Disney-Hyperion for providing a review copy!
I have such a soft spot for Leila Howland's Nantucket series, so I was thrilled to see a new book by her, although set on the West Coast. My NetGalley request to read Hello, Sunshine was approved with perfect timing as...
