The Reviewer Here is Inaccurate

I loved this book. It's witty, glamorous, fun, and surprisingly poignant. I think it's absolutely appropriate for older teens. And I have to say, as a drama teacher and someone who went to film school, I totally disagree with the idea that Shukert's research is somehow inaccurate--it absolutely jives with what I know of this era. As for the homosexuality issue, while the characters themselves are relatively accepting of it, the studio system is not--a huge plot point revolves around covering up a star's homosexuality, and the anguish this causes him and others around him. So I don't know what this reviewer is talking about there!
