Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning
Description: Seventeen-year-old Molly Montgomery never planned on becoming famous. Molly’s band, The Hormones, was just supposed to be about mucking around with her best mates, Jane and Tara, and having fun. But when the deliciously dangerous Dean and his friend T join the band, things start happening fast. Soon The Hormones are front-page news, and their debut album is rocketing up the charts. Molly is the force behind the band, but the hazards of fame, first love, screaming fans, and sleazy managers are forcing the newly crowned teen queen of grrl angst close to the edge. Fame never comes for free, and Molly’s about to find out what it costs.
Just like last week I’m featuring an older standalone book. This one I read back in high school so about 2006-2009ish. It left a lasting impression on me for being really good and tackling tough issues. I honestly couldn’t even remember what the book was called just that I liked it so much. After pondering this I decided I wanted to read it again! With the help of a old high school buddy who was the owner of said book back in the day I was able to track down the author. Imagine my surprise when they don’t even make the book anymore! It seems like all you can buy are used or older copies and there isn’t an option for ebook. Definitely a bummer, but well worth the search if you’re looking for a really fun, wild ride.
