About the Author
BARRIE SUMMY grew up in Canada, about 2,500 miles away from Hollywood. She visited all the places in this book, bought loads of souvenirs, and discovered that she is not very good at recognizing famous people.
Now she lives in California with her husband, their four children, a poodle named Dorothy, two veiled chameleons, and an incubator full of chameleon eggs.

Sherry asks her übercute boyfriend, Josh, to go with her, but over an orange banana smoothie he gets all squirmy and mumbly. How can you be an expert on love when your almost ninth grade boyfriend is more interested in water polo practice than a romantic trip to the film capital of the world?
So, Sherry finds herself in Hollywood with her dad and her best friend, Junie. Her mom, who happens to have died in the line of duty a couple of years ago, plans to join her there at the Roosevelt Hotel. She'll be working on the Marilyn Monroe mystery for the Academy of Spirits, and Marilyn is known to show up in a mirror at the hotel. Sherry's hoping a week visiting places like the Walk of Fame and the wax museum with Junie, her coffee-scented mom, and her dad and his corny jokes will help her forget that Josh isn't texting her.
Instead, she finds herself embroiled in the mystery of the missing purse with the diamond clasp. To make it worse, it's all over the World Wide Web of the Dead that she was present during the robbery, and it's all her fault. Unfortunately, the detective on the case is totally clueless, so when Sherry meets Leah, an over-zealous teen ghost who smells of root beer, she has no choice but to include her in the investigation. Sherry knows that if she doesn't solve the mystery, The Academy of Spirits may not ever let her work with her mom on a case again.
Will Leah blow her cover? Will Sherry be arrested for burglary? Will she be banned from The Academy of Spirits forever? And what about Josh? Is he ever going to text her again?
Barry Summy has whipped up another wonderful paranormal mystery in I SO DON'T DO FAMOUS. She'll keep you guessing and laughing with every turn of the page. And if you haven't read the other three Sherry Baldwin mysteries, I highly recommend them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll see Sherry at the movies. And don't be surprised if the heavenly scent of your buttered popcorn mingles with a whiff of coffee and root beer!
