Author Tara Botel Doherty’s newest book, Growing Up Hollywood, shows how deceiving perfect pictures can be. The collection of short stories paints a detailed picture of life growing up in the legendary Hollywood.
Growing Up Hollywood reveals the true face of Hollywood in the 1970’s, the Hollywood you’ve never seen in movies, the way it was before gentrification and big business development.
For most people, Hollywood is the land of hopes, dreams and success. People dream of making it big, becoming famous and living the life of luxury. But for sisters Annie and Grace, Hollywood is home, the place they learn about life. While their mother and father contemplate divorce, the two young sisters make sense of their lives amid the domestic chaos.
Ultimately, Growing Up Hollywood is not only a sharp and grim scene of one of the most famous cities on Earth. The book shows how an environment shapes and influences our character.
