Scripted Unscripted by Kristina Miranda
Ellie Quinn has spent most of her sixteen years behind the scenes, helping her father manage a crew of four-legged movie stars. Although she longs to be acknowledged as an animal trainer in her own right, she often gets stuck babysitting actors’ personal pets and is known around the studio as “the dog sitter for the stars.” When teen megastar Kate Montgomery’s sidekick gets fired while filming a pilot, Ellie is forced to temporarily fill-in. The producers seem to be enamored with Ellie–and so do Kate’s two love interests on the show, “it boy” Logan Canfield and brand-new actor Cam Alvarez–causing trouble on and off the set.
Now Ellie must decide between living the drama in front of the camera or behind it. If she quits and the pilot fails, she and her father will have to close their failing business and move to her grandfather’s lettuce farm. But if she stays on the road to stardom, it could mean losing the boy she’s fallen for–and herself–in the process. Can she save the TV show and her father’s business without losing everything else?
