“Where Are You, Echo Blue? is exhilarating, sharp, and often very funny. Following journalist Goldie’s investigation into a missing former child star will bring you right back to the thrill of having a pre-teen celebrity infatuation. Krischer’s exploration of celebrity, child actors, and the dark secrets of Hollywood is not to be missed.”—Julia Bartz New York Times bestselling author of The Writing Retreat

Where Are You, Echo Blue? is a potent and propulsive Hollywood noir. Goldie Klein is my new favorite gumshoe reporter and Echo Blue’s story is far more compelling than any celebrity clickbait. This is a beautiful and deftly wrought book, and I flew right through it.”
—Lauren Mechling, author of How Could She and co-author of The Memo


"Where Are You, Echo Blue? glitters with crisp prose, a juicy plot, and razor-sharp observations about celebrity worship, the cost of living a creative life, and the roles we allow women to play.”—Andrea Bartz, New York Times bestselling author of The Spare Room and We Were Never Here

“Reading about the lives of Goldie Klein, celebrity journalist, and Echo Blue, her missing-in-action celebrity obsession, is dangerously addictive. Hayley Krischer has written the ultimate Hollywood novel, one that revels mostly in grit, not glamour, and explores the ugly underbelly of life in the spotlight—as well as what it might take to leave it all behind. A gripping, nuanced read about two complex women struggling to become exactly who they want to be.”   
—Laura Sims, author of How Can I Help You and Looker

“Timely, sharp, and unputdownable, Where Are You, Echo Blue is a stunning exploration of 00s-era child stardom, told through the eyes of both a hungry journalist and the woman who defined that journalist’s childhood. Both a walk down pop culture memory lane and an inside look at its sinister mechanisms, this is my favorite read in ages. Obsessed.”—Jenny Hollander, USA Today bestselling author of Everyone Who Can Forgive Me Is Dead
