Do you want to be in a band? Well, here's how! First, bug your two older sisters to start a band, and then beg them to join. (It helps if they already know how to sing and play guitar.) Then there are some tricky parts, like getting over stagefright and practicing until the tips of your fingers ache and playing gigs at not-so-big-time music clubs. At least, that's the way our little sister narrator explains it in her "guide" on how to start a band, based on the real-life experiences of author Suzzy Roche.

I have been surprised by how much my little girls love this book! Written in a form directly addressing the reader, this book 'tells' the reader how he or she can get started on the road to stardom. The author herself was in a band with her sisters for 30 years, so the advice comes direct from someone who knows what they're talking about.

There are cute, colorful illustrations and some repeated phrases, like, "Make sure you keep practicing!" throughout, and fun, down-to-earth reality-checks, like the fact that some people will eventually stop caring about the band and write criticisms like, "The Thirds are for the birds." With the birth of my third daughter and two girls who already have a strong love of music, this book is both entertaining and inspirational for what could be, or for just dreaming.
