Veronica May is big in many ways, the most insignificant being clothing size. She’s got a big heart, especially when it comes to her father and fellow Vees, big talent as a theater actress, and, most noticeably, a big attitude. Deep down, Big Vee knows she can go so much further than just starring in community theater productions in Chester, Arizona. It only takes a nudge from her father’s decision to remarry and the loss of her job for Vee to make up her mind. Vee, sure she’s destined for greater things, heads off to join her old friend Little Vee, now called Reed and also an aspiring actress in Hollywood, California. LA can bring out the best and worst in people, so how will it change Big Vee? Can this big girl survive, or will she become a slave to the promise of Hollywood stardom

THE BOOK MUNCHER is the reviewing alias of a prolific reader. She is guilty of several overflowing bookshelves in several states. Her literary diet is mostly dedicated to the young adult fiction genre but has been known to occasionally stray into middle grade or adult categories. She is a firm believer that reading and literacy are as essential to modern life as physical sustenance, that fiction is often truer than nonfiction, and that stories and words have the power to change the world.
