The publicity material for "Ghost Light" by Sarah Romine commences with the following:
- Los Angeles has seen thousands of young hopefuls arrive in the "city of angels" bright-eyed and eager to see their dreams come true. They run from audition to audition, seeking comfort in the company of others who share similar dreams, and -- yes -- they work long shifts in bars and restaurants to make ends meet. Though we tend to hear the success stories about big celebrities who seemingly "made it" overnight, there are so many more that leave L.A. without having experienced their big break.
"Ghost Light" by Sarah Romine clearly illustrates the dangers that not only young people can fall into in when venturing into Hollywood in attempt to achieve their dream, but what can happen to everyone from anywhere.
Where there is power and greed, there are always those who are more than willing to tempt others and then use that "temptation" to control and manipulate the less fortunate.
This book should be "required" reading for any and all who are leaning in the "Hollywood" direction.
Would I recommend this to others? YES
