By (author): Ella Berman

Active 6.3 x 9.2 x 1.29 in | 1.31 lb 384 pages Berkley
A deep dive into the psyche of a young actress raised in the spotlight under the influence of a charming, manipulative film director and the moment when she decides his time for winning is over.

At the height of her career and on the eve of her first Golden Globe nomination, teen star Grace Turner disappeared.

Now, tentatively sober and surprisingly numb, Grace is back in Los Angeles after her year of self-imposed exile. She knows the new private life she wants isn’t going to be easy as she tries to be a better person and reconnect with the people she left behind.

But when Grace is asked to present a lifetime achievement award to director Able Yorke—the man who controlled her every move for eight years—she realizes that she can’t run from the secret behind her spectacular crash and burn for much longer. And she’s the only one with nothing left to lose.

Alternating between past and present, The Comeback tackles power dynamics and the uncertainty of young adulthood, the types of secrets that become part of our sense of self, and the moments when we learn that though there are many ways to get hurt, we can still choose to fight back.

“Ella Berman’s debut novel is a Hollywood tale that packs a wallop…the reader is taken on a journey of self-discovery and redemption…Grace Turner dreams big, suffers and soars. A stunning debut.”
Adriana Trigiani, New York Times bestselling author of The Shoemaker’s Wife

“Berman’s novel of a young woman recruited far too early in her life into the Hollywood machine may be the smartest book I’ve read in the past few years…”
Lithub

“In this compulsively readable story, Berman smartly picks apart the idea of a perfect victim…It’s a tale as old as time, told compassionately through a fresh new lens.”
Mashable

“A hopeful exploration of dealing with trauma that will have readers looking at celebrity gossip differently.”
Booklist

"Raw and nuanced…slices straight down to the nerve. A chilling exposé unfolding in real time—I dare anyone to read it without squirming in suspense and in recognition.”
Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network

“A spectacularly compelling story of a young woman finding the courage to take back control of her life…This is a novel that will stay with me.”
Sarah Haywood, New York Times bestselling author of The Cactus

“A raw, gripping and spellbinding account of dangerous secrets, a pining for retribution, and the power of women.”
Karma Brown, author of Recipe For A Perfect Wife

“A propulsive, timely study of a complicated young woman, trying to put herself back together again in Hollywood’s glare. Berman’s storytelling is at times darkly funny, at times rage-inducing, always gripping. I read it in 24 hours.”
Laura Hankin, author of Happy and You Know It

“A compelling tale of power and justice.”
Harper’s Bazaar

“Perfectly of-the-moment, it’s gripping, witty, and deeply satisfying—the kind of book you lose sleep over, and cancel plans for. I loved it.”
Katie Lowe, author of The Furies

“The perfect mix of timely topics and tabloid drama. We couldn’t put this book down.”
Bad on Paper podcast

“[A] mix of a thrilling page turner with the importance of the #MeToo movement and standing up for what is right…it weaves heavy issues into something unputdownable and enjoyable to read.”
The Stripe

“In a fiction debut that’s all too timely, The Comeback is about Grace Turner, a young actress who returns to Hollywood after retreating from the public eye.”
