Goodybye Hollywood Nobody by Lisa Samson

About the book:

Charley’s off to Scotland with her new beau, and Scotty and her dad travel to Maine in search of Scotty’s mom. When they land on her mother’s last known trail, will their questions finally be answered?  

My Review:

Goodbye Hollywood Nobody is the final book in the Hollywood Nobody series by Lisa Samson.  This is an amusing series about Scotty Fitzgerald and her unique family situation and un-common living situation.  Goodbye Hollywood Nobody is about Scott traveling with her dad in search of her mother.   During the course of the summer Scotty grows up a lot more than she has already and is working of self-discovery of what God wants from her life. 

I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  I had not read the other books in the series but thought this book sounded pretty cute so I picked it out as a book to review.  I was skeptical that I would not enjoy the book because I hadn’t read the other books.  Well, I was surprised that was not the case.

I easily connected with the powerful characters right from the start.  Scotty is just an amazing teen and her personality was so refreshing! I just loved how she would have internal battles about what God would want her to do and what her instant reaction to do was, that made her feel like a more believable character.  I enjoyed watching her grow spiritually and see her step out in faith even though it went against what she desired to do.  That alone made me want to re-examine my life and think about the times God asked me to step out on the line and I refused.  I have to say that that the term Jesusy just literally had me laugh out loud!

This story well very well-written and there was a lot of depth and soul searching that I just didn’t expect in it.  I really think that even though I read the last book first I really do now want to go back and read the previous books.  I highly recommend this series to young teens, older teens and maybe even some adults like myself, you will not be disappointed.
