The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne
Allie is 16 years old, a
music geek and now a full time employee at Berkley’s Bob and Bob Records. She’s
pretty much exactly where she wants to be. She’s also a music reviewer named The
Vinyl Princess, but shhh, it’s a secret. She puts up a fake identity to author
her music zine and blog. Allie’s blog is super popular, but the record store
business isn’t exactly booming and when it comes to guys, her mom is getting
more dates than she is. For all the unique, music collectors out there, this
read is just for you.
Damsel Distressed by Kelsey
Imogen’s life has never been
easy. And after her mother’s death, things go from bad to worse. Her dad
remarries, and along with a new stepmother comes an evil stepsister, Ella.
Theatre becomes Imogen’s saving grace as she relishes in her time in the
spotlight in her high school’s musical. That is, until her darkest secrets are thrown
into the public and Imogen doesn’t know what to do next.
Amplified by Tara
Leaving home is something
most teens don’t experience until they go to college, but that isn’t the case
for 17-year-old Jasmine. When Jasmine gets booted out of her house for not
following her father’s wishes, she books it to Santa Cruz, CA with all the
money she has. There, she finds the perf place to live, but must convince the
current band of tenants to let her move in and
join their band. Lets just say Jasmine’s privileged days are long gone.
If I Stay by Gayle
Go ahead and add this national best seller to
your must-read list now, so you’re ready to go when the film adaption starring
Chloe Grace Moretz hits theaters Aug. 22. Mia has a choice to make: should she
chose her Julliard career over her boyfriend and family, or put her love of
music behind her to keep her BF and fam by her side? But suddenly she’s faced
with a much more difficult choice after she and her family are injured in a
terrible car accident: life or death?
Saving June by Hannah
Losing a family member is
hard enough, but when it’s your older sister and your parents get a divorce on top of all that, it’s easy to understand
why Harper has lost pretty much all her sanity. Things get even more
complicated when her parents try to split her sister’s ashes between
households. That’s when Harper decides to swipe her sister’s urn and drive to
California—where her sis only ever dreamed of going—with her bestie Laney. Now
the classic rock-obsessed Jake want to tag along. And, unexpectedly, he spills
a thing or two about music, life, love and so much more.
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila
Elise isn’t Miss. Popular. She’s never really
been that great at making friends in general and she’s definitely the girl most
likely to be picked last in gym. But when a late night warehouse party pulls
her in, she suddenly has friends. And cool, talented friends to boot. A singer,
a DJ, a carefree spirit come together to lift Elise up and bring out her inner
DJ. This cast of characters will show you just how powerful music can be.
Merch Girl by Rebecca
Lacey and Trina’s love of music is out of
control. The love leads them to sneak into a Boston nightclub to see their
favorite band. Soon enough, they find themselves meeting the band and hanging out on their tour bus. Even
better, the girls charm their way into working for the band as merch girls,
getting to sell merchandise on the band’s first ever summer tour. Suddenly,
their last summer before college proves to be much crazier than either of the
girls ever imagined.
