Their fantasy is her reality in this bright and uplifting contemporary coming-of-age novel by the acclaimed author of Breaking Sky and You Were Here.
Iris Thorne wants to blaze her own path. That's easier said than done when you're the granddaughter of M. E. Thorne, famous author of the Elementia series, hailed as the feminist response to J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. And with a major motion picture adaptation of her grandmother's books in the works, Iris can say goodbye to her dream of making her own way in the music industry.
So when Iris and her brother get invited to the film set in Ireland, she's pretty sure the trip will be a nightmare. Except Iris can't deny the rugged beauty of the Irish countryside. And brushing shoulders with the hot, young cast isn't awful, especially the infuriatingly charming lead, Eamon O'Brien. Iris even finds the impassioned female director inspiring. But when the filming falls into jeopardy, everything Iris thought she knew about Elementia-and herself-is in question. Will making a film for the big screen help Iris to see the big picture?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I absolutely loved this book. It was fun, cute, funny, exciting, and deeply meaningful. First, it's got movie filming, hot famous actors, fandoms, Ireland, and cute romances. But then it's got people who feel like they aren't good enough for the people they love. People who are judged by what they like to read or what music they like to listen to. There is a lot about how people find themselves in fictional worlds, and how others judge them for it. There is a lot about family. There is a lot of deep, sad, thoughtful stuff, while still being light-hearted. It's a book about dreams coming true. About dreams being shattered, and reimagined. This is a book for people who love fictional worlds. Because it's about us

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED IT This book has the perfect amount of drama, teen angst, love, and of course feminism. I want to become a film producer when I'm older so I really identified with this book and the struggles that women go through in general and in the film industry. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who loves fantasy, feminism and mushy love scenes.
