Songs About a Girl is a gorgeous page turning romance from start to finish. This is the book that teenage dreams are made of!
Absolutely perfect as a summer book. It only took me a day to read because I got completely hooked!
This is the music based book that I have been waiting for
This story felt incredibly current. It's exciting and easy to read. Chris Russell is a fantastic writer
A thoroughly absorbing tale of family relationships, friendship and betrayal. Fans of Non Pratt will love it
Highly addictive, utterly charming and impossible to put down
This was such an addictive story, I seriously could not put it down
Songs About a Girl is more than music, its about growing up, dealing with issues that others face every day, its about becoming a stronger person for yourself and never giving up on your dream. It's a book that you can fall into and never want it to end, and I really need the next installment now please
Writing about fictional celebrities while contriving to make them seem real is a hard trick to pull off, but Chris Russell's YA debut succeeds where many others have failed. His own background as a musician and band member is much in evidence. Everything he writes about rings true. Fire&Lights have the unmistakeable stamp of authenticity and it's clear that Russell still vividly remembers what it's like to be both a teenager and a fan. This was a book that I just wanted to go on an on. The ending when it did come was clever, surprising and very, very intriguing. And the really good news is that Songs About a Girl is the first of a trilogy
Once I started reading, I honestly couldn't stop and managed to fly through the book in three days. The pacing was perfect and there was never a dull moment. The dialogue was also spot on, especially Melissa's fangirling sessions. Any fangirl or fanboy reading this book will smile at Melissa's reactions to everything! The ending was a fantastic cliff-hanger and definitely has me eager for more - WHEN WILL THE SEQUEL BE IN MY LIFE?
Occasionally, a book will come along that shakes up the blogosphere completely. The latest of those books? Songs About a Girl by Chris Russell....this is such a brilliant book with funny dialogue and some very clever twists... you won't want to miss it
I completely fell hard for this book. It's a delight and, aside from a few personal disagreements with some of Charlie's choices, I just didn't want this book to end. Songs About a Girl is fun, cool and is going to completely win the heart of any fangirl that wanted to be plucked out of the crowd by a band member
Chris's writing is completely addictive, it's unputadownable.
I was absolutely bowled over by Chris Russell's staggeringly good YA debut, Songs About a Girl, and Charlie's latest tribulations in the equally engaging Songs About Us certainly does not disappoint on any level.
