The book has sold millions around the world. Miles wins the audition but has to get in shape and have his light brown hair bleached. In fact, the film studio seem to want to change everything about him. He needs to be breathtakingly beautiful but also able to have fiery anger and appear in a blaze of glory. It’s against the rules for him to fall in love.
The film is a great success, propelling him to worldwide Hollywood fame. But fame and wealth is not all is cracked up to be – and the sharks start to circle.
