Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more. She’s a real teenager complete with all the moodiness and the impulsiveness. Not to majning how bland the writing is.

I dont cry for anything, not books, movies or funerals. The “magazine articles” within the book were tragically awful.

She has two very normal friends: Learn more about Amazon Prime. Compromising can be really though and it gets really ugly when you reach the point in which the price to pay is losing yourself in the bargain.

Sep 17, Ringo The Cat rated it it was ok. Its pretty much about a girl who starts a band in London [by the way it may take you a little while to get that this story is set in London]. I can’t say it’s the best, most well written book in existence. At the party, they meet Paul who becomes their manager. I read this book because I want to be a rock star.

The premise has such great potential. Soon The Hormones are front-page news, and their debut album is rocketing up the charts. Guitar Girl even proceeded to bring tears to my eyes on occassion.

Amazon Rapids Fun stories glrl kids on the go. To summarise, this is a light, fast read and I mannning definitely recommend to YA fans. But it aint all fun and games because Molly has to guigar with a power abusing manager, the fact that Dean and her hate eachother or maybe they’re just pretending guitsr they have the hots for eachotherand the effect that being in the spotlight can have on the young and famous.

They do, and the band gets signed to a record label and they are mnning big as everyone knows teen pop can get. This book is mainly for teenagers, I can say that now, even though it is in the young adult section anyways.

The nitty gritty of rock and roll. These three girls want to rock the world- and when they meet two boys who turn their chill-out band into something more, their dream comes true- but there is a catch- all comes at a price. Kirsty and Rachel need to find Matilda the Hair Stylist Fairy’s magic brush, before bad hair days start happening every day. Don’t just go “Hmm, I think I’ll throw in a slutty drug addict chick” and then don’t delve into her psyche a little bit.

After one of there first gigs, the three girls meet two other boys, Dean sqrra T. Let’s face it, doing it can be tricksy. The story’s carefully developed characters and relationships, driven by tuned-in dialogue, make it realistic and compelling. The race is on! Seventeen-year-old Molly’s band was always just about being a girl – singing Hello Kitty Speedboat and pretending to play instruments with her best mates Jane and Tara.


Unbelievable given that this is set inpre-takeoff of YouTube.

The secondary characters are also very well drawn when you have a strong narrator, the secondary characters can run the risk of becoming cardboard cutouts. I mean who doesn’t want to hear pop songs guitr hello kitty? There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

I think I even said, “Hey, we should form a band. Guitar Girl is totally Molly’s story, and to that end, sometimes the supporting characters aren’t as strong as they could have been.

But I guess this book pretty much answers it all for me. My English teacher had just shouted five more minutes to grab a book and head back maning class. I just love how this book encourages you to let your “self”, even though that self is total girly girl who loves cartoons and Hello Kitty and is a complete nobody in their High School.

Guitar Girl

Who makes a bunch of 17 yr olds the “hottest thing” after they only play 2 live shows? Seventeen-year-old Molly Montgomery never planned on becoming famous.

Overall, it was a great, thought-provoking read and I highly recommend it. It’s a fast read, but worth buying because of how re-readable it is. Please try again later. Fame never comes for free, and Molly’s about to find out what it costs.

I’m glad it’s not a series.
