I am so excited to welcome Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount to Books, Tea, Healthy Me today. They are taking over this post and bringing you their Dream Cast for their new book, Gutter Girl, which is available now. The book is the first in the “Twin River High” series. Before we see the dream cast, let’s learn more about the book and the authors.
Gutter Girl by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount
Publication Date: May 10, 2021
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Star football player Jace Rovers has a secret. And not just any secret—a shocking secret… He writes romance. The kind with swords. And dresses. And kissing.
Nobody knows. Not the other kids at Twin River High. Not his overbearing parents. And certainly not the millions of fans who’ve read his book on the writing platform Scribbles. And that’s the way he plans to keep it.
Except suddenly one of the other football players grabs his notebook in jest and starts reading a kissing scene out loud…and Jace knows he’s busted.
But then McKenna Storm, resident goth girl who avoids the spotlight like a virus, snatches up the notebook and tells everyone she’s the author. And lucky for Jace, she later agrees to continue the ruse…for a price.
Heck, he’d give her anything not to reveal his secret. But when they start to fall for each other, he knows he’ll have to keep the biggest secret of all—his darkest character is based on her…

I asked the authors of Gutter Girl to come up with their DREAM CAST for their book. Here’s what they had to say…
For JACE we found this fun picture: https://pin.it/4s8GuWA and we have a Pinterest board for Twin River. I think as far as an actor, Ian Nelson might be pretty cool. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm4122775
Jace is athletic and muscular, but Ian’s smile… it just makes me smile. If I were to give some advice to the actor, I’d say be genuine. He doesn’t engage in the bullying that goes on at school, and I feel like his integrity is high, so run with that.
Kelly Anne, who do you think we should cast for McKenna? I found the perfect McKenna Storm online (pictured left)! The only bad news is that I don’t know the name of the girl in the picture? I’ve tried looking, but I haven’t been successful yet!
Here’s a link to the picture in our Twin River Series Pinterest Board: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/326651779230436131
I also think Abigail Cowen (pictured right) would do an amazing job playing McKenna Storm! She is so talented and with some pink buns, I think she’d totally embrace McKenna’s character and take her to a new level!
We have links for her saved on Pinterest as well: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/326651779234080749
As far as advice, I think I would tell the actress playing McKenna that she is a character who has been through a lot of emotional turmoil. That she cares deeply for those closest to her and that she rarely lets anyone get to know the real McKenna Storm. She has dreams and plans for her future, but she can count the people who know about them on one finger. Lastly, and one of my most favorite aspects of McKenna Storm is that she has a dry sense of humor. She is hilarious in a blunt and I-don’t-give-a-crap sorta way!
