    Description

    Four beautiful women seek fame and fortune in Hollywood, the City of Toys, where actresses are like dolls, playing pretend on the big screen.

    Marlo: a former child actress from New York City.

    Rhonda: a small-town beauty queen.

    Kim: a “nice Jewish girl” with a painful childhood.

    Guyla: a “serious actress” with a debilitating, stress-induced illness.

    Marlo, Rhonda, Kim, and Guyla, become friends living in the same apartment complex, in the city where dreams and disasters go hand in hand. They come to rely on each other as they deal with sexual come-ons, crazed stalkers, jealous starlets, and the constant pressure of trying to make it in showbiz. But when the pressure gets too much, will their friendship save them or will the City of Toys break them?

    A modern take on Valley of the Dolls in the MeToo era.

    Will the challenges beat them?

    Good Narration with lots of Characters. I especially liked the New York accent

    We've all heard how hard it is to make it in Hollywood. The author gives a nitty gritty real experience look of four young women determined to make their dream come true. They come to the city about the same time from different backgrounds and become friends helping each other, suffering the high price they will pay with each other.

    To begin the apartment building has its own set of problems and people including an off-balanced pervert. Great way to start their new life. Headshots, resumes, jobs, men, are only some of the problems they experience. The question persists will they be stronger than the challenges. Or will the challenges beat them?

    If you enjoy fiction showing real life this one is for you. Each character has a distinct personality and background affecting the way they handle the life. You answer the question, is the effort worth the prize at any cost?
