Chasing Starlight by Teri Bailey Black

(0 reviews)
9.99 USD
Chasing Starlight by Teri Bailey Black is a high concept light-hearted historical YA about the Golden Age of Hollywood

1938. The Golden Age of Hollywood. Palm trees and movie stars. Film studios pumping out musicals, westerns, and gangster films at a furious pace. Everyone wants to be a star—except society girl and aspiring astronomer Kate Hildebrand, who’d rather study them in the night sky. She’s already famous after a childhood tragedy turned her into a newspaper headline. What she craves is stability.

But when Kate has to move to Hollywood to live with her washed-up silent film star grandfather, she walks into a murder scene and finds herself on the front page again. She suspects one of the young men boarding in her grandfather’s run-down mansion is the killer—maybe even her grandfather. She searches for clues.

Kate’s too sensible to drop out of high school to work at a movie studio, hunt a killer on her own, and fall for a penniless actor with a head full of dreams. But that’s exactly how her stars are aligning.

Part Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, with a dash of Veronica Mars.

Praise for this book

Praise for Girl at the Grave

Finalist for the 2019 Thriller Award for Best Young Adult Novel

“With its vibrant, atmospheric setting and lush and captivating prose, Girl at the Grave is in fact, a searing love story which kept me swooning page after page. Romantic tension between Valentine and Rowan sizzles, igniting a gothic love story that will burn in readers hearts, and minds, long after reading.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Kerri Maniscalco

“Girl at the Grave kept me up late at night with its non-stop secrets, twists, and scandals. An entertaining homage to classic Gothic romances that will keep readers guessing until the very last chapter.”—Cat Winters, Morris-nominated author of Odd & True

“While the plot transpires with unforeseen turns, the romantic tension Black crafts between Valentine and Rowan pushes the pace, holding readers’ attention until the last page. Purchase where there are avid fans of gothic romance, historical fiction, and mystery.”—School Library Journal

“This gothic murder mystery will be a breath of fresh air for historical fiction buffs. Resourceful Valentine anchors this atmospheric debut, which marks Black as a writer to watch.”—Booklist




About the AuthorTERI BAILEY BLACK might write about troubled people in dark places, but she grew up in a large, happy family, surrounded by books, art, and plenty of sunshine. She's happiest when she's making things. Needlework, pretty gardens, chocolate cake, four children—not necessarily in that order. She lives in Orange County, California with her husband and children. Girl at the Grave (Tor Teen) was her debut novel.
