Blurb:Sara is obsessed with rock star Tyler Vincent, and as she works to complete her senior year, she’s determined to find a way to meet him—although her best friend, Aimee, keeps telling her to find a different escape from her desperately violent home life.
Complications arise when Dale, the mysterious new transfer student, sets his sights on Sara, and she falls for this rock-star-in-the-making in spite of her better judgment. When Sara wins a contest, she is faced with a choice—travel to Tyler Vincent’s home town to meet him, or stay and support Dale in a Battle-of-the-Bands hosted by MTV.
Their triangulated relationship is pushed to its breaking point, but there is another, deeper secret that Dale’s been keeping that just may break things wide open...
Turn up your collar, feather your hair, and splash on some Polo, because we’re going back to the ‘80’s when MTV played music videos, there was no such thing as American Idol, and becoming a star meant doing nothing short of crazy for that one, big break.
Sara has been obsessed with the idea of Tyler Vincent for a while. He is her escape from the world and if she manages to win a contest that Tyler Vincent's funding he will really be her escape from her home with a full scholarship to a university in Maine. Dale is a new student and he has caught Sara's eyes. Dale seem to be everything she wants, doesn't help that he also looks similar to Tyler Vincent, is in a band and can help get front row tickets to Tyler Vincents Concert. Everything seems to be going good in their world until Sara wins the concert Tyler Vincent is hosting. Now she must choose to say with Dale and see him to go the Battle of the Bands or Leave to Maine and accept her Prize but leave Dale behind.
Wow, just loved this book. I think a lot of girls and women can relate to Sara's character. I liked how real she felt. I loved the connection between Dale and Sara. At times I felt that Sara was selfish though I felt that she let her obsession take too much of her. Meaning if Dale didn't look like Tyler Vincent would she have given him a chance. Or How she was way into her relationship to be more loyal and caring towards her friend. I liked how caring and patient Dale was to Sara. I enjoyed the overall story and thought that this book was well written. This book is great and I think you lovely readers will enjoy reading this book.
