Book Description of FALLEN STAR (North Star Trilogy #1):
When ordinary guy, E.J. McCarty, crosses paths with not-so-ordinary Annie Wilson, extraordinary things happen. For E.J., it’s the start of a great adventure. For Annie, it’s an escape from colossal failure. But thanks to fate--and Amtrak--they’re thrust together on the cross-country ride of their lives. E.J. and Annie like each other, so what’s the problem? Rock star/actress Cassandra Lawrence is the problem. Despite their obvious attraction to each other, Cassandra’s history in show biz and distrustful nature conspire to keep them apart. Can E.J. break down the walls Cassandra has built around Annie? Can Annie learn to trust E.J. enough to let him even try? And what’s with E.J.’s bizarre dreams about the North Star? From Chicago, through the heartland and all the way to the Malibu Pier, they struggle to accept that while faith, hope and love are important, trust is the key to the future.
Whoopie Goldberg would be Gloria - Whoopie's amazing. My personal favorite role of hers was as Guinan, the mysterious bartender/advisor in Star Trek The Next Generation. It's a role not unlike Gloria in Fallen Star.
Grace Potter (Annie)
Grace Potter of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals would be Annie. I don't know if Grace can act, but she's perfect for the musical portions of the story. I'd say more, but I don't want to give away too much about the story!
Milo Ventimiglia (E.J)
Milo Ventimiglia would be E.J. I loved his portrayal of Peter Petrelli in Heroes and he's the only actor who comes to mind when people ask me who would play E.J. on the screen. Giveaway:
