Geek Girl meets Fame meets New Girl in this brilliantly funny new series!

When Elektra is discovered by an acting agent she imagines Oscar glory can't be far away (all she has left to do is work out what to wear on the red carpet), but instead she lurches from one cringe‐ worthy moment to the next whilst (mostly) retaining her sense of humour. Just how many times can you be rejected for the part of "dead girl number three" without losing hope?

And who knew that actors were actually supposed to be multi‐lingual, play seven instruments and be trained in a variety of circus skills? Off‐stage things aren't going well either, she's fallen out with her best friend, she's stuck in the friendzone with the guy she has a crush on and her parents are driving her crazy. One way or another, Elektra's life is now spent waiting for the phone to ring – waiting for callback.

And now... WAITING FOR CALLBACK: TAKE TWO! The second book in what LoveReading4Kids calls our 'fabulously feel-good, epically entertaining' series!

Life is looking up for Elektra. She's landed a starring role in an actual blockbuster film and become the almost-girlfriend of her long-time crush, Archie. But with Straker-the-movie's dystopian disasters not limited to the action in front of the camera, and Archie's sudden relocation to Transylvania to play a vampire hunter surrounded by 'maidens of peerless beauty', Elektra may have to wait a little longer for her Hollywood dreams to come true...

We were lucky enough to have a fab themed book blog tour for Take Two.

It's a BIG year for Elektra. She’s wrapped her first feature film Raw (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming) and hosted - against the odds - the party of the year (well, until her mum turned up and kicked everyone out) so, things are definitely moving in the right direction. BUT she’s still not sure what’s going on with Archie, her bff Moss’s love life is in shreds and GCSEs are looming. And the COUNTDOWN to Raw’s release is TERRIFYING, not least because it turns out there’s more to promoting a movie than messing around on Insta… #ComingSoon, #ElektraExposed #RawTerror.  Elektra’s road to acting stardom is as rocky as ever…

Full of humour and warmth, this is the perfect series for fans of Holly Smale, Katy Birchill, Beth Garrod and Marianne Lev

Off-stage things aren't going well either - she's fallen out with her best friend, remains firmly in the friend-zone with her crush and her parents are driving her crazy. One way or another, Elektra's life is now spent waiting for the phone to ring - waiting for callback.
