Publication Date: December 12, 2017
Scarlett Stiles is desperate for a change of scenery after her older brother, Liam, dies of a drug overdose. But spending the summer with her grandfather wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Luckily, Scarlett finds something to keep her busy–a local rock band looking for a guitarist. Even though playing guitar has been hard since Liam died, Scarlett can’t pass on an opportunity like this, and she can’t take her eyes off the band’s hot lead singer either. Is real happiness just around the corner? Or will she always be haunted by her brother’s death?
This is my first Christine Hurley Deriso book and so far I’m not convinced.
But having said that this isn’t the worst book out there.
This book by the end was pure and simple. After the month I’ve had with all the mafia books, after all the angst and the unneeded yet craved roller coaster of emotions, this was comparatively calmer, lighter and relaxed.
I love the Young Adult genre, you never know what you sort of Gem you’ll find, sadly All The Wrong Chords wasn’t it. At times, it was predictable.. I could literally see myself saying “oh oh… I can totally see that this is going to be a disaster!”.
But having said this was a relaxing read.
