A teen rockstar has to navigate family, love, coming out, and life in the spotlight after being labeled the latest celebrity trainwreck in Jen Wilde's quirky and utterly relatable novel.
As a rock star drummer in the hit band The Brightsiders, Emmy King’s life should be perfect. But there’s nothing the paparazzi love more than watching a celebrity crash and burn. When a night of partying lands Emmy in hospital and her girlfriend in jail, she’s branded the latest tabloid train wreck.
Luckily, Emmy has her friends and bandmates, including the super-swoonworthy Alfie, to help her pick up the pieces of her life. She knows hooking up with a band member is exactly the kind of trouble she should be avoiding, and yet Emmy and Alfie Just. Keep. Kissing.
Will the inevitable fallout turn her into a clickbait scandal (again)? Or will she find the strength to stand on her own?
I’m so excited for this book! I loved Queens of Geek last year and was actually really surprised by it because I sometimes find the books from that publisher to be not great. But this one was so enjoyable and the characters were so relatable. I instantly loved it. I didn’t even know the author had another book coming out this year until I got an email from the publisher that mentioned it. I immediately added it to my TBR/must-read/wishlist shelves and have been on the lookout for a copy since. I’m seriously hoping to get my hands on a copy at ALAMW but I don’t know if it’ll be either. Either way, I’m going to pre-order this book and cross my fingers hoping it’s as adorable and real as the last one.
What are you waiting on this week?
