The timing in this book seems a little off. We don’t really know how much time really passes between chapters, and sometimes even in between passages. However, it seems to follow Alex well enough and covers some of the more important life experiences with her band(s), boys, friendships and everything else a girl her age goes through. Suffice it to say this book stayed true to itself and rang very realistic to a middle-grader/early high-schooler’s life.
Although the story itself was a bit short, there was a ton of extras in the book that keeps it fun and interesting. With a great story, removable tattoos, simple illustrations throughout, as well as directions for playing the guitar and writing song lyrics, this is a book that should definitely be checked out.
