It's the early 1920's and Ellis Eton is thinking of leaving school and going off to Hollywood to make a name for herself in the new film industry. Before she can run off though, one of her childhood friends begs her to take her job as a "hello girl". Figuring that the job is just like acting, she Ellis attacks it with gusto. But, when she overhears a sinister sounding plot that involves her neighbor, Ellis tries to unravel the mystery before it's too late.
At first, I wasn't sure how I would like this story, since Ellis is a bit scattered, but her character grows on you! I like that the author explored what it would be like to have ADD back in the early 1900's. I also enjoyed all the historical facts woven into the story and that it talks about the prohibition and what was wrong with it. Two thumbs up!
