That is, until now.

BERTIE. Our heroine.
Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the actors of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book—an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family—and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
Lisa Mantchev has written a debut novel that is dramatic, romantic, and witty, with an irresistible and irreverent cast of characters who are sure to enchant the audience.
“All the world is her stage”
This is the story of Britce, she lives in the theater but do not belong to the theater; which all the characters comes to life not only the stage but they live together and act and react outside there plays.
All what has been written in The Book keeps the magic alive as so the theater.
I love this book so much, I really enjoyed reading it.
Starting from the amazing reactions of the characters outside the plays; till the story of Britce herself and how she want to stay in the theater even though she do not belong there; it’s her home and she has to keep it safe and never let a hand touch The Book.
I also loved the passion and the kisses.
I give it 5 out of 5.
