LOVE AND ENTROPY: A Hollywood Lights Novella

A tension-filled weekend at a lake house will change the lives of two unlikely friends forever.

One hot North Carolina summer, Daphne Saito and her boyfriend, Sutton, encounter awkward physics geek Greta Donovan, a fellow college student at elite Cameron University. But while Daphne sees Greta as someone worth befriending, Sutton’s motives are far from pure.

A retelling of Shaw’s classic Pygmalion, and filled with unexpected heroism, Love and Entropy reveals what can happen when we let our vision of what others should be cloud our vision of who they are.

Praise for the Hollywood Lights Series:

“Pryal deftly portrays relationships that are under the magnifying glass, obsessive and dysfunctional, while still capturing the complexity and love.”  —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of The Blackbird Season

“Pryal pierces L.A.’s film industry veneer to find complex and relatable characters and then winches the ties between them, pulling the reader right into the fray. The result is as psychologically astute as it is engaging.”  —Kathryn Craft, award-winning author of The Far End of Happy and The Art of Falling

“Poignant and thoroughly entertaining.”  —Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Lies and Other Acts of Love

“Katie Rose Guest Pryal writes with a rare understanding about the complexity of new adulthood.”  —Tina Ann Forkner, award-winning author of Waking Up Joy
