Going Off Script by Jen Wilde
4 out of 5 stars
Goodreads Description: Seventeen-year-old Bex is thrilled when she gets an internship on her favorite tv show, Silver Falls. Unfortunately, the internship isn’t quite what she expected… instead of sitting in a crowded writer’s room volleying ideas back and forth, Production Interns are stuck picking up the coffee. Determined to prove her worth as a writer, Bex drafts her own script and shares it with the head writer―who promptly reworks it and passes it off as his own! Bex is understandably furious, yet…maybe this is just how the industry works? But when they rewrite her proudly lesbian character as straight, that’s the last straw! It’s time for Bex and her crush to fight back.
I received an ARC of Going Off Script from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. It was just released last week (May 21st).
I have never read a book by Jen Wilde before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect with Going Off Script. I loved the way it sounded in the description and that cover is pretty amazing, so I was excited when I received a copy from the publisher. I had a lot of fun reading this book! I ended up really liking it a lot.
There were so many diverse characters in this story, which was really great! Some of the things talked about throughout the story are so relevant to today as well, which was another great point. I think so many people will find Going Off Script relatable. I really liked the characters and loved all the different friendships & relationships throughout the book. I think Bex struggled a little bit when she moved to LA, but she had so many good people in her life to help her though it and she was able to start living as her authentic self. It was also interesting getting a glimpse into Hollywood life and what happens behind the scenes of writing and producing TV shows.
Overall, I really liked Going off Script. I thought it was fun, cute, and super relatable. There are so many diverse characters and it deals with a lot of pretty important things. I am really looking forward to reading some other books by Jen Wilde, because I thought she did a terrific job with this one. I definitely recommend checking it out.
Sorry for the mini review! I did really enjoy this book though. 🙂 I will hopefully have my May book haul and May wrap up posts up in the next few days. I’m trying to finish one more book and an audiobook before my wrap up post goes up. Crossing fingers! I am also planning to do a picture update post too, because it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of those. I hope you guys had a great weekend!

Thanks, Marie! I hope I’ll like Jen Wilde’s other books too. 😀 ❤
I haven’t read this author either, but I do like the sound of this one. With summer coming up, it looks like a great novel to pick up.
I think this would be perfect for summer!
I haven’t read anything by this author yet either. I hadn’t even heard of this book, but your review makes it sound so good! I am going to add it to my TBR and see if I can get a copy from my library.
I hope you get a chance to read it soon. It was pretty good and perfect for summer.
Character development can really make or break a book! It’s a great sign that there are so many different types here! Thanks for the review, Ashley.
I totally agree with you on character development! I have a hard time reading/enjoying a book if there isn’t good character development or if they are not relatable.
