Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning
Book DescriptionSeventeen-year-old Molly's band was always just about being a girl - singing Hello Kitty Speedboat and pretending to play instruments with her best mates Jane and Tara. But then the arrogant Dean and his sidekickT hijack the band and suddenly the fluffy girl band becomes The Hormones - a real band with a record deal - and they're heading for the big time. Molly slips further and further away from her old life and straight into a tangled love-hate relationship with Dean. Then there are the constant parties, the drugs and the phonies who pretend to like you when they don't...Molly is living her dream, and she's never felt lonelier in her life. But has she got the strength to walk away from the band, and start again?

Ellie Cohen is living her dream. A great job at an exclusive Mayfair art gallery, loyal mates, loving family, and really, really good hair. But when a vengeful ex sells Ellie out to the press, she suddenly finds herself fighting to keep her job, her reputation and her sanity.
US Kirkus Review » Despite an intermittently witty voice and a high interest topic, this trip through the world of pop rock never gets off the ground. Seventeen-year-old narrator Molly Montgomery finds herself living the dream of many teenagers as the lead singer in a popular band. But except for the rush of performing, she just doesn't have much fun. Her love-hate relationship with a male band member predictably becomes an anguished love affair, while her close friendships with the band's other two girls deteriorate. Readers will have to suspend their disbelief as Molly, who has no musical training, succeeds by writing songs such as "Hello Kitty Speedboat," and succumbs to her dishonest manager's blatant manipulations. Molly's comments on her ex-hippie parents, and her interactions with them, provide hilarious moments, but not enough of them to get this story rocking. (Fiction. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)
