Day Dreams & Movie Screens

By Alena Pitts with Wynter Pitts (Zonderkidz)

War Room actress Alena Pitts pens Day Dreams & Movie Screens as the second in her “Lena in the Spotlight” series. The 13-year-old targets her book to Christian girls, particularly pre-teens.

In the first volume, Lena Daniels auditions for her first movie role with Christian teen music idol Mallory Winston. Despite gummy-goo on her teeth in the video contest, Lena wins the part.

In Day Dreams & Movie Screens, life for the Daniels family returns to normal after filming as the three sisters prepare for a new school year. Then a phone call changes everything. Mallory invites Lena on tour as Mallory records a live CD and promotes the movie. She asks Lena to give her testimony, introduce Mallory, and talk to concertgoers.

With Mom and Dad’s support, Lena accepts, and she and her mother board their touring bus. The young girl narrates her fun new adventures with humor, honesty and courage. Most chapters end with prayers, letters to friends, Scriptures or journal entries that offer insight into her growth as a child of God.

Entertaining, exciting and enjoyable, Day Dreams & Movie Screens encourages girls to follow their dreams, and it demonstrates how godly families can keep them grounded and gracious on the way.
