Product Details


The Daydreams is catnip for anyone who feels deeply about the private lives of popstars. If you wanted Britney free, read this book. If you wanted Justin Timberlake to pay for his crimes, read this book. Juicy and heartfelt. I couldn’t put it down.”
Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of All Adults Here

“A delicious behind-the-scenes look at stardom and the scars it leaves behind. Part mystery, part soap opera, all fun – this delightful book will give you a jolt of nostalgia while dispensing insightful commentary about being a young woman in the spotlight.”
Elissa Sussman, bestselling author of Funny You Should Ask

“With all of Laura Hankin’s razor-sharp wit and incisive social commentary, The Daydreams exposes the many ways in which the media uses and discards its female stars, and manages to be both undeniably timely and steeped in perfectly rendered early 2000s nostalgia…Darkly humorous, big-hearted, and totally impossible to put down.”
Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of The Girls Are All So Nice Here

“This firecracker of a novel had me riveted from the first page. If you remember the aughts fondly, you’ll fall head over heels for this nostalgic read by Hankin. I absolutely loved it.”
Elissa R. Sloan, author of The Unraveling of Cassidy Holmes

The Daydreams sucked me in so thoroughly, I forgot I was reading a novel instead of a juicy stack of 2000s tabloids. Hankin pulls back the curtain on Hollywood’s darkest secrets with plot twists that made me race toward the deeply satisfying ending. This perfect beach read is a nostalgic delight!”
Hannah Orenstein, author of Head Over Heels
