About the Book:

Michele has always tried to stick to one simple rule with her band: never date anyone in it. It was never a problem until the new rhythm guitarist showed up. He's more like her than anyone she's ever met before. Which might not necessarily be a good thing. Especially since a different guitarist is the one who really makes her heart sing. As Michele tries to juggle two jobs, overcome her stage fright and keep her parents in the dark about her choices at Arizona State University, her dreams for a career in music feel more out of reach than ever. But one drunken evening leads her to discover some sobering truths. Should she follow her heart, or follow her dreams?
