Waiting for Callback Take Two by Perdita & Honor Cargill

Elektra Jones is a 15 year old student with dreams of making it big as a movie star. She lands a starring role in Straker, a dystopian blockbuster film, for which she is highly unprepared as she doesn’t have the physical skills that they expect her to perform in front of the camera. At the same time as landing this role, Elektra starts dating her long-time crush, Archie.

When she starts filming, Archie has to relocate to Transylvania for a TV role playing a vampire hunter surrounded by gorgeous girls, which makes Elektra feel very insecure and causes tension between them. Her co-star, Carlo, tries to make a move on her but she isn’t interested as she likes Archie. Life on and off the movie set is out of control. The writers change the script daily, the director is frustrated, the other actors are divas, Elektra hates her on-screen unglamorous outfit and her relationship with Archie is troubled to say the least.

This book is humorously written, the characters are interesting and their interaction will have you laughing and screeching at them when they don’t do what you expect.

I’d give this book a solid 3.5 stars as it was an enjoyable read.
