Seventeen-year-old Lacey Kind doesn’t have the guts to talk to cute boys, isn’t a size two, and would rather stay home and listen to music than go to a party. But in the summer before her first year of college, she ends up thousands of miles away from home, in the back of a tour bus, underneath the body of the hottest teen rockstar in the country.
When Lacey and her best friend Trina sneak into a Boston nightclub to see their favorite band, they not only get to watch their rock gods perform for the first time, but score a chance to meet the guys too. Lacey’s heart races as she comes face-to-face with her idol, nineteen-year-old lead singer, Logan Shire.
The girls charm their way into being hired to sell merchandise on Lansdowne’s first summer tour. As “merch girls” Lacey and Trina quickly find themselves transported from their ordinary, suburban life to an exhilarating few months on the road. But they soon realize that life on the road isn’t always a smooth ride...
If you're a music lover (or fangirl lol), this book is for you.
This book was everything I could ask for in a book - music, rockstars, and romance!
Seventeen-year-old Lacey and her best friend Trina get to spend the summer on tour with their favorite band, Lansdowne. The summer is filled with music, drama, and romance. I love that Rebecca Lewis didn't make everything out to be super glamorous. Lacey & Trina have to adapt to life on the road, without access to a shower at times, which humored me. They had to deal with fans throwing themselves at "their" guys. And both girls dealt with the many insecurities that come with falling for a rockstar and having to keep your distance from him in the public eye. However, sprinkled in between those dramatic moments, there were secret kisses, heart-to-heart conversations, and the many perks of being "with the band."
I particularly liked the character of Devin and how she originally looked like an obsessed fan but really was in love with the music as much as the boys. I worried early on about how she'd impact the story, but she was one of my favorites. Logan was dreamy and super sweet. He softens the awful stereotypes that rockstars tend to get, and I liked that about him (because not all rockstars are self-absorbed jerks, people).
The only thing that bothered me was Lacey's constant self-doubt. It was realistic, yes, and it was very fitting with a normal 17 yr old dating a rockstar, but sometimes I wanted to shake her and scream, "Lacey, you're awesome! Get over it!" She and Trina were the kind of girls I'd like to hang out with (which says a lot because I rarely ever hung out with girls in high school). It's rare that I enjoy female characters this much, so props to Rebecca for writing cool chicks! :)
If you're a music lover (or fan girl lol), this book is for you. If you're looking for a fun romance, this book is for you. If you like contemporary YA in general, this book is for you! Basically, READ THIS BOOK. You won't regret it!
