From the winner of the Ampersand Prize comes this smart, swoony LGBTQ YA novel about a teenage band on the way to the top - so long as they can hold it together. Liliana's hitting all the wrong notes. She's a sixteen-year-old exchange student with a secret crush on Carter, her new band's smoking hot guitarist - but she's also got a girlfriend back home. So when she writes a song about him and it lands the band a record deal, she quickly realises she's in hot water. Soon, Liliana will have to choose - between an alluring boy and the girl she left behind, between love and lust, and between the fame that beckons and staying true to the music that's in her heart. With shades of hit TV series Nashville, the musical passion of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and the band drama of Fleetwood Mac, this brilliant own-voices YA debut is perfect for music lovers everywhere.
