Pulling at the Stars

Beth Marie Read

Twenty-one-year-old Nina is determined to make it in New York City. She searches for work as an actress and hopes to find love but can’t seem to land a big break with either. After a promising relationship with a celebrity crashes, she decides to move across the country with a man she has just met, when suddenly her life spirals down a dark and dangerous path.

"A cautionary tale for young women who simply want to believe, and at the same time, a strong story of self-discovery along with learning what love really means.  I am sure that Nina’s journey will resonate with young women everywhere, who want to follow their dreams, but don’t understand how to do it.  Nina Panicucci is a great guide into growing up, and I look forward to further tales of her life in the big city."
—Scott Rosenfelt, Producer, Mystic Pizza, Home Alone, Teen Wolf

"It’s so very raw/real/truthful, inspiring and HOT!!! Nina is a strong, intelligent, sexy character. I love her inner dialogue and take on everything. She’s got this dealing/living in NYC thing."
—Michael Lombardi, Actor, Rescue Me
