A present-day drama student falls from the Hollywood Sign and awakens in 1953, where she is mistaken for a rising star who has disappeared under mysterious circumstances and must find out what happened to her to get back to her own time.


Hollywood is not all glitter and gold.

As her brother lies in a coma after a near-fatal car accident, twenty-one-year-old Grace Brighton climbs the Hollywood Sign to make a desperate wish for his recovery. She loses her footing and plummets to the ground below—only there is no impact. Instead, she finds herself the center of attention at a film studio . . . in 1953 Hollywood. Everyone believes she's Alice Montgomery, a rising star she bears an eerie resemblance to, who disappeared just days earlier.

Grace has no choice but to step into Alice’s shoes, meeting Alice’s entourage and noticing not everyone is happy that she has returned. Grace begins to suspect that something terrible has happened to the young actress. Afraid Alice’s miraculous return has now made her a target, Grace must find out who wants to harm Alice to have a chance to return to her own time. When she discovers one of the missing starlet's deepest, darkest secrets, Grace finds herself in grave danger—she may die long before she’s even been born.
