15 year old Ruby’s life is changed with a blink of an eye. One moment she’s with her mom, the next her mother is dead. Ruby is sent to Los Angeles, or “Lost” Angeles as she calls it, to live with her movie star dad who’s never been a part of her life. Now she must live in a world of celebrities, rich people, and people so unlike the “normal” she’s used to. But the death of a local kid makes her realize there’s more to these people than beauty.
