'Funny, heart-warming and just properly brilliant.' Maximum Pop 'Glows with warmth and wit' Jenny McLachlan 'A witty, feel-good romp of a book. Waiting For Callback is my new favourite teen read!' Emma Carroll When Elektra is discovered by an acting agent, she imagines Oscar glory can't be far away, but instead lurches from one cringe-worthy moment to the next! Just how many times can you be rejected for the part of 'Dead Girl Number Three' without losing hope? And who knew that actors were actually supposed to be multi-lingual, play seven instruments and be trained in a variety of circus skills? Off-stage things aren't going well either - she's fallen out with her best friend, remains firmly in the friend-zone with her crush and her parents are driving her crazy. One way or another, Elektra's life is now spent waiting for the phone to ring - waiting for callback. Can an average girl-next-door like Elektra really make it in the world of luvvies and starlets? Geek Girl meets Fame meets New Girl in this brilliantly funny new series!
'There's something in this book for every reader- bits to make you laugh, bits to make you cry and plenty of life-affirming, upbeat moments that make it the perfect tonic. More please!' Emma Carroll Elektra has finally landed a part in a film. It's the dream. Well ... until she works out that Straker is a movie so dystopian that within weeks most of the cast and all of the crew wish that the world had actually ended (preferably in scene one). And while it's obviously great news that she's moved from the friend-zone with Archie to become his almost-girlfriend, it would be better if he hadn't immediately relocated to Transylvania to play a vampire hunter surrounded by `maidens of peerless beauty'... Full of humour and warmth, this new series is perfect for fans of Geek Girl and The It Girl. 'Waiting for Callback: Take Two fills you with so much love and laughter, it will brighten your day. It's completely catching in this book, there was so many laugh out loud, cringe worthy moment's your heart just beats that bit faster out of pure joy and happiness for this book.' Never Judge a Book by Its Cover 'A hilarious read with a fab main character. The excellent dialogue sets it above most of the other similar books in a crowded field (which includes lots of great reads!)' YA YEAH YEAH
'Glows with warmth and wit' Jenny McLachlan, author of Flirty Dancing 'A witty, feel-good romp of a book' Emma Carroll, author of Letters from the Lighthouse 'So warm and funny with characters who feel like friends' Keris Stainton, author of Starring Kitty Name: Elektra James Featuring in: upcoming movie RAW - Romeo and Juliet meets Hunger Games meets Planet of the Apes meets...?? Who knows? It's complicated. Relationship Status: Umm...hopeful? It's a BIG year for Elektra. She's wrapped her first feature film Raw (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming) and hosted - against the odds - the party of the year (well, until her mum turned up and kicked everyone out) so, things are definitely moving in the right direction. BUT she's still not sure what's going on with Archie, her bff Moss's love life is in shreds and GCSEs are looming. And the COUNTDOWN to Raw's release is TERRIFYING, not least because it turns out there's more to promoting a movie than messing around on Insta... #ComingSoon, #ElektraExposed #RawTerror. Elektra's road to acting stardom is as rocky as ever... Full of humour and warmth, this is the perfect series for fans of Holly Smale, Katy Birchill, Beth Garrod and Marianne Levy.
