In 2019 Reid has talked about how the book came to be for Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine Book Club, Here's an excerpt from her article, "Two years ago, when I decided I wanted to write a book about rock ‘n’ roll, I kept coming back to that moment when Lindsey watched Stevie sing Landslide. How it looked so much like two people in love. And yet, we’ll never truly know what lived between them. I wanted to write a story about that, about how the lines between real life and performance can get blurred, about how singing about old wounds might keep them fresh. Even after copious amounts of research about Fleetwood Mac and a host of other duos and bands, I’m still taken with that moment between them. I can’t help but marvel at the idea that, despite everything they’d been through, Stevie and Lindsey still loved each other then. Or how, despite what it looked like to us all, they no longer did. I know I’ll never know the answer. And I suppose, if I’m being realistic, there isn’t one."
We also have some news on the cast of the movie, they are... Ariana DeBose, Chloe Fineman, Amanda Seyfried, and Megan Stalter. We will be covering a full-fledged preview as soon as the movie goes into production.
