Anooshka Stargirl sometimes sees her life as a movie. But she can't escape the realities. The acclaimed author of Johnny Voodoo tells a passionate, allegorical tale of a teen girl who turns her fixation on a rock singer into an empowering journey of self-discovery.
However, Orpheus is a player and he drops her afterwards, sending Anooshka spinning downwards. Archetypal connections to the myth are mapped with intriguing complexity, placing Anooshka as both Eurydice and Orpheus. Sixteen-year-old Anooshka lives with her unstable mother in upstate New York but frequently visits her exotic, beloved older sister in Manhattan. Falling hard for a rock star named Orpheus whom she meets one manic day, Anooshka pores over his daily online journals and senses a cosmic connection between them. She pursues him to his hip restaurant and they hook up, after he declares seductively that they won’t.

Anooshka Stargirl sometimes sees her life as a movie. But she can't escape the realities. At home there's a depressed mother who often won't emerge from bed. And a dad who's not in the picture. There are two best friends but a stifling pack of aspiring glamour girls. Fortunately there's Zoetrope Zallulah Moon, modish older sister extraordinaire, living a bus ride away in New York City.
Visiting Moon one summer weekend when the heat won't relent, Anooshka hears rock singer Orpheus's music. She's immediately entranced by his sound. His lyrics seem to echo her mood and light a spark in her core. After meeting the shy, approachable Orpheus by chance, Anooshka can't shake him from her head. And his Internet diaries keep signaling that they share a magnetic synchronicity. Soon Orpheus expresses an interest in her, and like the Greek mythological heroine Eurydice, Anooshka descends deep into a mesmerizing underworld -- until she reaches a place where fantasies topple and the unspoken finally makes itself heard.
Dakota Lane's tantalizing, allegorical tale follows a teen's obsession as it transforms into empowering self-discovery.
