FOR THE RECORD
Author: Charlotte Huang
Release Date: November 10th, 2015
Publisher: Delacorte Books For Young Readers
If Almost Famous were a YA novel… a raw, honest debut celebrating music, friendship, romance, and life on the road.
Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like… until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything
Now she’s the lead singer of the band Melbourne, performing in sold-out clubs every night and living on a bus with three gorgeous and talented guys. The bummer is that the band barely tolerates her. And when teen heartthrob Lucas Rivers take an interest in her, Chelsea is suddenly famous, bringing Melbourne to the next level—not that they’re happy about that. Her feelings for Beckett, Melbourne’s bassist, are making life even more complicated.
Chelsea only has the summer tour to make the band—and their fans—love her. If she doesn’t, she’ll be back in Michigan for senior year, dying a slow death. The paparazzi, the haters, the grueling schedule… Chelsea believed she could handle it. But what if she can’t?
WHAT I THOUGHT:
If there were one thing that I could say I liked as much as books, it would be music. I’m a huge music junkie. And I love books about music. Seriously, if I know a book is music themed, I will more than likely read it without even reading a blurb.
For the Record was an easy, fun read. Chelsea was a strong main character, and the author did a fantastic job of developing her throughout the book. She got a second chance at a music career, but then she’s hit with all the emotions of being the front woman for a popular band. Huang captured her emotions beautifully. I also loved the band, Melbourne, and how they all brought different things to the table, but worked really well as a band. It would be kind of awesome if there were more books from the different members of the band. Just saying.
I totally dug this one, and I recommend it to YA readers and music lovers. I give it 4 stars.
