Lola Carlyle's 12-Step Romance
Release Date: 05/05/15
Entangled Teen

Summary from Goodreads:
Lola Carlyle is lonely, out of sorts, and in for a boring summer. So when her best friend, Sydney, calls to rave about her stay at a posh Malibu rehab and reveals that the love of Lola’s life, Wade Miller, is being admitted, she knows what she has to do. Never mind that her worst addiction is decaf cappuccino; Lola is going to rehab.

Lola arrives at Sunrise Rehab intent solely on finding Wade, saving him from himself, and—naturally—making him fall in love with her...only to discover she’s actually expected to be an addict. And get treatment. And talk about her issues with her parents, and with herself. Plus she has insane roommates, and an irritatingly attractive mentor, Adam, who’s determined to thwart her at every turn.

Oh, and Sydney? She’s gone.

Turns out, once her pride, her defenses, and her best friend are stripped away, Lola realizes she’s actually got a lot to overcome...if she can open her heart long enough to let it happen.

Hello! I thought, for today’s post, that we could play, Cast the Movie.                                Lola: Lola has strawberry blonde hair that’s at least long enough to put in a ponytail, cat-like green eyes. But in this case, the acting is more important than matching her physical description too perfectly. This role has to be played with equal parts sass and vulnerability, and she has to have good comic timing! My dream actress for this would be Anna Kendrick—perfect range of talents. However, she’s not in her teens anymore. Since Anna might not pan out, I’m going to go with Molly C. Quinn, from Castle. She looks perfect for the role, plus she can do funny, which is an absolute necessity. 

Wade: (Lola’s old friend and love interest—a dazzlingly hot and charming TV star) I have to admit, Ian Somerhalder was in my mind when I wrote the part of Wade, although again, can he play a teenager? It’s him, or a Hemsworth brother kind of guy, but I can’t figure out who the “real teen” equivalent would be. 

Adam: This is Lola’s mentor, who turns out to be both infuriating and interesting. Lola describes him as looking like a Jonas Brother, but a little rougher. So, are you kidding? Give me a Jonas Brother! Nick can act, right? 

Talia: One of Lola’s roommates—very sweet, quite weird, has multiple addictions, a big personality, deep down very needy. (I can’t have Anna Kendrick for this either, right?) Ellen Page! I think she would bring the perfect combo of sweetness/neediness/crazy person to the character of Talia. 

Jade: Lola’s second roommate. This is a challenging part because she doesn’t talk much but is a huge presence, so you need someone who can act the crap out of a substantial, but non-speaking role. Actually Ellen Page would be great for this too, but I was also thinking Zoe Kravitz. 

Dr. Koch: The charming-but-shifty guy who runs Sunrise Rehab. He doesn’t fit the physical description, but if I could I’d cast Charlie Sheen.
