June 2016 Book of the Month. Oozing with ambition, glamour and more ruthless Hollywood backstabbing than you can shake a designer stiletto at, this is the sassy first instalment of Alyson Noël’s Beautiful Idols series.Everyone in LA either is, or aspires to be, a somebody and few are more driven than ambitious young things Layla, Aster and Tommy. Blogger Layla dreams of studying journalism in New York, while strictly-raised rich girl Aster is desperate to make it as an actress, and country boy Tommy has set his sights on becoming a Grammy-winning musician. They share one thing in common: the desire to succeed at any cost, which is what pushes them to enter a contest to promote LA nightclubs to an A-list clientele. Enter Madison Brooks, the Hollywood starlet who’s shunned her past, “seized control of her destiny and made it her bitch”, and whose presence at any club brings a whole lot of kudos, not to mention press. When the lives of the three contestants entwine with Madison’s, they get a whole lot more than they bargained for after she goes missing and they’re implicated in a suspected homicide.Part thriller, part racy peek through the keyhole of the dark side of celebrity-worshipping culture, this novel is as exhilarating and seductive as the world it depicts and dissects, posing the million dollar question: how far will a person go to get what they want?In a Nutshell: Hollywood glamour | Ambition |Thriller

Fans of Tim Burton and Wes Anderson will love this new fantasy novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Nol in which a ragtag team of eleven-year olds with otherworldly abilities set out to solve the mystery behind the sudden onset of ordinary events plaguing their very unusual town. Compared to other more ordinary towns, Quiver Hollows is a very strange, very curious place. It is also home to longtime friends Grimsly, Ollie, Ming, and Penelope. In a town where everyone is spectacularly abnormal, Grimsly feels bad about being terribly, unforgivably normal, as the town's pet funeral director. So when a series of strange and disturbing mundane occurrences begins plaguing Quiver Hollows, well, Grimsly fears his growing celebrity just might be to blame since everyone knows that the things you focus on the most have an uncanny way of shaping your world. The group of friends also learn that the bones in the pet cemetery are thought to be the source of the strange magic that binds the town of Quiver Hollows. With the bones now gone, the town's magic is quickly dissipating. Will it ultimately become as common and ordinary as everywhere else?
