9780142403181: Guitar Girl

Seventeen-year-old Molly Montgomery never planned on becoming famous. Molly's band, The Hormones, was just supposed to be about mucking around with her best mates, Jane and Tara, and having fun. But when the deliciously dangerous Dean and his friend T join the band, things start happening fast. Soon The Hormones are front-page news, and their debut album is rocketing up the charts. Molly is the force behind the band, but the hazards of fame, first love, screaming fans, and sleazy managers are forcing the newly crowned teen queen of grrl angst close to the edge. Fame never comes for free, and Molly's about to find out what it costs.

Review:

Sex, drugs, and rock & roll... a common high-school fantasy, right? In British author Sarra Manning's debut novel Guitar Girl, this oft-trumpeted triple-temptation proves to be terribly trying for a budding pop star. Molly Montgomery and her friends Tara and Jane live largely unnoticed until they form a fledgling girl band that will "be part of the new girl revolution." Fragile-yet-feisty Molly writes songs about Hello Kitty and boy crushes because that's the stuff of her world--a childhood closely guarded by her "crunchy granola," rule-oriented parents she dramatically deems "power-crazed fascists." But when her band is joined by a couple of older boys and attracts the attention of a fancy manager, "The Hormones" start racing--big gigs, an American tour, the whole bit. During her wild ride to stardom, Molly gets her first kisses from both a boy and a girl, gets drunk for the first time (but not the last), and loses her virginity and her sense of self, too. Any teenager who romanticizes celebrity will get a good dose of the reality of drug overdoses, morning-after pills, legal battles, exploitation, humiliation, and exhaustion with Guitar Girl...still, Manning manages to communicate the rush of wowing an audience and the joy and power of music through the often bittersweet, often bitingly funny voice of Molly. For a variation on the same theme, investigate Rachel Cohn's Pop Princess. (Ages 13 and older) --Karin Snelson

About the Author:

Sarra Manning is a teen queen extraordinaire. She spent five years working on the now sadly defunct UK teen mag, J17, first as a writer and then as Entertainment Editor. She then joined the launch team of teen fashion bible Ellegirl UK, which she later went on to edit and has consulted on a wide range of other youth titles including Bliss, The Face and More.

Sarra was most recently editor of BBC’s What To Wear magazine. She’s now advises a number of UK magazine publishers as well as being a contributing editor to Elle UK. Sarra has also contributed to The Guardian, ES Magazine, Seventeen, Details and Heat and wrote the Shop Bitch column for Time Out London. Pretty Things is her second title for Penguin and she’s currently working on her next book, Let’s Get Lost. Sarra lives in North London with her devoted dog, Dino, the mongrel she saved from an untimely death.
