Box-Office Smash - Book Review

image credit
Jason Hart is not the greatest student, and he's seen his fair share of troubles in his life. But he does have a talent for making movies, a talent that has not gone unnoticed by millionaire Harmon Holt. Mr. Holt invites Jason to be part of a summer internship on a movie set in LA. Jason, of course, accepts the internship and is excited to be on a real movie set and meeting one of his favorite horror movie directors.

But once Jason arrives for his first day on the job, he's assigned less-than-interesting jobs. Jason wants to direct, not make coffee, collate scripts, and make sure the food table is stocked. He also wants to spend more time helping the movie's star, Becca, and his new crush, run her lines.

Jason's attitude toward his work has repercussions not just with his bosses, but also with his chances with Becca. Jason soon learns that he has to take any and every job seriously. No matter what he's doing, he's responsible. And it's the little jobs that help make the bigger job possible.

Box-Office Smash by D.M. Paige is the first book in a new series called The Opportunity. All of the books are about kids with big dreams who learn valuable lessons as they take the opportunity of a lifetime. The book is a very quick read, which is perfect for teens who want to progress beyond middle-grade chapter books but who don't want to invest in the time to read a longer YA novel. This book series will also appeal to teens who have an interest in making it in the biz, whether that's movies, music, modeling, sports, or politics.

Box-Office Smash is published by Lerner Publishing Group and is available to purchase now. I received a free review copy for my honest review.
