Carter's Big Break
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
After surviving freshman year (just barely), Carter is craving his summer break. Unfortunately, when he and his girlfriend, Abby, part ways, it looks as though summer just might break him. Things start to look up when he’s unexpectedly cast in an independent film opposite the world’s biggest tween sensation, Hilary Idaho. With Hollywood knocking on his door, Carter gets a taste of the good life. But as the film spirals out of control, he begins to fear that he’s not the “somebody” he thinks he is and more the “nobody” he’s sure he always has been.

You can see her rib bones as she leaps into the air and glides out over the water with a gleeful scream. For just a second I feel like such a pimp for bringing her here and showing her something so cool and out of the ordinary . . . but that second passes. The rope reaches its climax and she does not let go. I guess I wasn’t specific

He asks, “Why would someone like Hilary . . . someone who has it all—” Abby doesn’t offer up any advice, she just asks me, “What are you going to do?” “I don’t know . . . probably nothing. What can I really do? I mean, who the hell am I?” She replies, “You’re her friend. It seems like you may be her only one. If you and I have smelled her breath, then her bodyguard and C.

high heels? You’re filthy!” I hear the laughter again, and it sounds really familiar, like my sister’s or Abby’s, but not quite. Who the hell is this? A lightbulb finally goes off when Hilary says, “Carter, you are such a dork!” I haven’t seen Hilary since she left Merrian, unless you count that time on Access Hollywood.
