A love letter to the craft and romance of film and fate in front of—and behind—the camera from the award-winning author of Hold Still.
A wunderkind young set designer, Emi has already started to find her way in the competitive Hollywood film world.
Emi is a film buff and a true romantic, but her real-life relationships are a mess. She has desperately gone back to the same girl too many times to mention. But then a mysterious letter from a silver screen legend leads Emi to Ava. Ava is unlike anyone Emi has ever met. She has a tumultuous, not-so-glamorous past, and lives an unconventional life. She’s enigmatic…. She’s beautiful. And she is about to expand Emi’s understanding of family, acceptance, and true romance.
This is possibly one of the my favorite reads so far. Everything Leads to You is about self discovery,and finding out what real love is.
Emi is an extremely likeable character. I love that she has a strong relationship with her family and friends. She’s strong even when she doesn’t think she is. I also love that she works hard to follow her dreams. I connected with her so well.
I also want to say that her sexuality wasn’t blanched at, or anything like that. It was accepted, and she didn’t feel the need to hide it or be ashamed. I freaking loved that part. I also enjoyed the behind the scenes look of the film industry. It gives me a whole new respect for the crew. I liked how Emi’s attraction to Ava is gradual. It’s not fast, and rushed. And I think that Emi did a great job when dealing with her ex.
I loved this book, and I can’t wait to read more from this author. I recommended it to so many people already!!!
