Publisher's Summary

After an unexpected divorce, Marla Goldberg yearns to believe "someday is now" and pursue her dream of being an actress in Chicago. But how can she quit her frustrating radio station account executive job when she's only booking work as an extra?
When she dips her toes into the daunting dating pool, her first "date" wants to meet in a pet store parking lot. Other forays yield equally unfortunate results that make her friends laugh out loud. As she seeks a talent agent and speaking roles, it's one step forward, one step back. When told to eat a muffin at a commercial audition, her mouth is so dry she can't spit it out in time to say her line.
Dealing with overachiever siblings, judgmental parents and longing to make her dreams come true, she struggles to learn the hardest lesson of all: how to feel special when you're not the star.

Great Book!

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. The narrator did a wonderful job with this book. She did a great job with the different voices of each character in this book. It was very easy to listen to and I didn’t want to stop listening until the end. If you are looking for a great book with well-developed characters then you need to listen to this book. I am looking forward to listening to the next book by this author and narrator.

A story about following your dreams

I enjoyed this story a lot, it had some realistic life and workplace situations, and some funny ones as well. The main character was very likeable and her struggles are familiar to most of us. It was very interesting to follow Marla on her journey, to witness her doubts, determination and life changing decisions. There was no glamour there, just real face of show business. A lot of anecdotes and funny situations made it a very pleasant book.

Highly recommended.
