Unscripted Joss Byrd is a middle grade book about child-star Joss Byrd who at the age of 12 has starred in three Oscar Nominated films. While struggling with her mother’s expectations, a crush on her movie brother, and a secret that could end her career, Joss must pull off a performance worthy of a star. When her renowned, charismatic director demands more than she is ready to deliver, Joss must go off-script to stay true to herself.
This story is a touching coming-of-age story perfect for middle school readers. Also great for tweens who are dyslexic, since Joss is an un-diagnosed dyslexic who struggles to keep up with her peers when reading scripts.
