Everyone wants to be someone.
Layla Harrison wants to leave her beach-bum days for digs behind a reporter's desk. Aster Amirpour wants to scream at the next casting director who tells her "we need ethnic but not your kind of ethnic." Tommy Phillips dreams of buying a twelve-string guitar and using it to shred his way back into his famous absentee dad's life.
But Madison Brooks took destiny and made it her bitch a long time ago.
She's Hollywood's hottest starlet, and the things she did to become the name on everyone's lips are merely a stain on the pavement, ground beneath her Louboutin heel.
That is, until Layla, Aster, and Tommy find themselves with a VIP invite to the glamorous and gritty world of Los Angeles's nightlife and lured into a high-stakes competition where Madison Brooks is the target. Just as their hopes begin to gleam like stars through the California smog, Madison Brooks goes missing. . . . And all of their hopes are blacked out in the haze of their lies.
Unrivaled is #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noel's first book in a thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.
Hollywood Boulevard is a place best viewed behind a pair of polarized lenses and lowered expectations.
Yet if you know where to look (and if you're fortunate enough to boast a spot on the guest list), it's an oasis of the city's hottest nightclubs-a hedonistic haven for the young, fabulous, and rich.
But there's no exiting through the gift shop if you buy a ticket to this show. Once you push past the velvet ropes and pulsing crowds, you might never escape.
