Karen Kingsbury’s Take Two, the second book in her bestselling Above the Line series, finds independent filmmakers Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison at the center of Hollywood’s rough and tumble game of wheeling and dealing. The two friends discover that all that glitters is not gold—and that success in Tinsel Town could cost them their relationships, their ideals and, most importantly, their self-respect.
Chase and Keith have completed their first feature film and Hollywood is buzzing with the news of the discovery of these two exciting new filmmakers. In the wake of that excitement, the fledgling producers acquire rights to a novel that has all the ingredients they want for their next project. At the same time, they cross paths with a well-connected Hollywood player who introduces them to the right people and suddenly every studio in town wants to talk to Chase and Keith.
The producers’ dreams are on the verge of coming true but there’s a price. Chase’s marriage is strained and Keith’s daughter, Andi, is making questionable choices in her quest for stardom. Their goal of truly changing the culture through the power of film is within their grasp—but is it worth the cost?

Great book. I had trouble putting it down. It faces a lot of the challenges that we have to face in this life.

This is definitely NOT for young people under the age of 18. Pretty graphic. Since it's a cliffhanger there are unresolved issues which could confuse a teenager. This series is a little too contrived to me.
great book. Had a hard time putting the book down. Enjoyed both books in the series. Am looking forward to the next book in the series.
