Everything Leads To You - A Hollywood Mystery, A Runaway, A Secret Letter, An Inherited Fortune and Two Teen Girls Who Fall In Love

Everything Leads To You by Nina LaCour

After being entrusted with her brother's Los Angeles apartment for the summer as a graduation gift, Emi Price isn't sure how to fulfill his one condition: that something great take place there while he's gone. Emi may be a talented young production designer, already beginning to thrive in the competitive film industry, but she still feels like an average teen, floundering when it comes to romance.

But when she and her best friend, Charlotte, discover a mysterious letter at the estate sale of a Hollywood film legend, Emi must move beyond the walls of her carefully crafted world to chase down the loose ends of a movie icon’s hidden life, leading her to uncover a decades’ old secret and the potential for something truly epic: love.

Nina writes that this novel began

"In a Minnesota high school's library, talking to the members of its Gay Straight Alliance...who were searching for themselves in the books they read, and for clues to where they might fit in the world."

I read this one. I enjoyed the LA setting, the glamorous lifestyle of the main character, and the sweet lesbian love story. It's different from a lot of other YA books because school and parents are non-issues for the main character, in fact the main character almost seemed like a young woman in her early twenties.
