Ruby Navarro, a precocious young girl with two best friends and a love of horror films, concocts a plan to get her estranged parents back together. It involves those two best friends, her dog, and her filmmaker uncle to piece it all together. The problem is, some people think they're making a horror film, some a romantic comedy, and some have no idea what's going on at all.
Steve certainly has the voice of a teenage girl down pat for this novel. Sections from her POV vary with the third person viewpoint for her parents, which takes a bit of getting used to in the beginning. There's a similar high energy in the third person scenes, too, which could be because it takes place in Los Angeles with a heavy Hollywood influence. There are definite comedic moments when you realize that the actors are being manipulated into joining the film school movie but they have no idea. There are so many stereotypes for actors and producers here, and even those who aren't involved in Hollywood behave in over the top ways. If anything, Ruby seems to be the sanest character in the entire book!
The tone of the book overall is very much like a movie itself, with fused genres involved. It's a really fun and imaginative blend, which flows much better than you might think. The pacing of the story is rapid so that it really sucks you in. Ruby is a fun character, and I enjoyed seeing things from her perspective the most. I wouldn't be surprised if this novel at some point becomes a movie itself. Then it would get very meta, being a movie about the process involved in filming a movie.
