I do adore a good music-based story and AMPLIFIED sounds like it hits the right note (sorry–couldn’t resist). Plus, I absolutely loved Tara Kelly’s first book, HARMONIC FEEDBACK, which was a beautifully written story with intriguing characters.
When privileged 17-year-old Jasmine gets kicked out of her house, she takes what is left of her savings and flees to Santa Cruz to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Jasmine finds the ideal room in an oceanfront house, but she needs to convince the three guys living there that she’s the perfect roommate and lead guitarist for their band, C-Side. Too bad she has major stage fright and the cute bassist doesn’t think a spoiled girl from over the hill can hack it…

  1. Oh I haven’t heard of this one before but it sounds so good! I don’t read too much contemporary YA (I have no idea why, I always enjoy them), but I think this might be a must read. Fantastic choice Mary!
