Dropping out of high school to pursue her Broadway ambitions, a talented performer lands in a directionless job before a visit to the library catapults her into the plotlines of the books she reads.
"There's nothing worse than peaking in high school. Nobody knows that better than Josie Pie. She used to be kind of a big deal--she dropped out of high school to be a theater star! But the bigger you are, the harder you fall. And Josie fell. Hard. Broadway dream? Dead. Meanwhile, her life imploded. Best friend? Distant. Boyfriend? Busy. Mom? Not playing with a full deck. Desperate to escape, Josie gets into reading. Literally. She reads a book and suddenly she's inside it! And with each story, she's a different character--a postapocalyptic heroine, the lead in a YA rom-com, a seventeenth-century wench in a corset. It's alarming...but also kind of amazing? Book after book, Josie the failed star finds new ways to shine. But the longer she stays in a story, the harder it becomes to leave. Will Josie find a story so good that she just stays forever?"--jacket flap.
