The sixth Sammy Keyes book is one of the most exciting yet, as Sammy and her friend Marissa decide to blow town and take a bus to the seedy, insane town of Hollywood to surprise (and shake some sense into) Sammy's mother, the elusive Lady Lana. When they arrive, they discover that she's transformed herself into the glamorous, platinum-blonde, "25-year-old" actress Dominique Windsor, who certainly could never have spawned a 12-year-old --let alone a scruffy, no-nonsense girl like Sammy. The plot thickens, however, as Lady Lana's masquerade backfires in the most dreadful of ways and Sammy is left to save the day and solve the biggest mystery of her life.

"As soon as the listener crosses the imaginary boundary that Bruno Bettleheim called the "suspension of disbelief," the fast-paced, zany, and thoroughly engaging world of Sammy Keyes is encountered. In this latest mystery, Sammy and her companion, Marissa, set off for a whirlwind weekend in Hollywood. There they hope to shed light on the whereabouts of Lady Lana (Sammy's mother), who has stranded Sammy at her grandmother's apartment as she pursues her dream of becoming an actress. Tara Sands skillfully takes the characters beyond the mundane through her impressive ability to speak in many voices--supercilious, sarcastic, and sincere. While delivering nonstop action, she underscores the notion that strength and beauty of character are more than skin deep. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
