The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters by Elisabeth Robinson

In The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters, Elisabeth Robinson, an ex-Hollywood producer whose sister died from leukemia, creates a fictional story of a Hollywood producer whose sister is dying from leukemia. Olivia Hunt is the producer whose life and career have recently fallen apart. She's been fired by the studio and dumped by her boyfriend, and then discovers her sister, Maddie, is dying. Maddie, ever optimistic and idealistic, convinces Olivia to make the movie she always wanted, a remake of Don Quixote. Told entirely through correspondence, the story centers around Olivia trying to balance the three loves her life: her sister, her boyfriend, and the movie she tries to make while dealing with the back stabbing and shallowness of Hollywood. This debut novel has received mostly positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "With a gift for comic timing, Robinson excels at showing our embarrassment and helplessness in the face of human suffering."
