Take One (Above The Line Series #1), by Karen Kingsbury.
34 customer reviews with 4-1/2 stars out of 5, current price $0.00
Current hardcover price $14.99; paperback price $6.00. Digital List price was set at $11.99. This Kindle book is published by Zondervan with a displayed date of March 10, as a free Kindle book promo, I guess. As with so many of Amazon's faster-selling Kindle books lately, this is labeled Christian Fiction. It's about two who decide to make a feature film in Hollywood and their travails with that process. There aren't any external newspaper reviews cited though.

Young adult novels, fantasy genre. Her Ink Exchange for Harper Collins received a positive review by The Washington Post's Mary Quattlebaum: "As the sequel to last year's popular Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange is even more compelling, thanks to Melissa Marr's more nuanced characterizations..."
HarperCollins is putting a lot of teen-market money behind Marr. See the video they've produced.
