My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really enjoyed the peek into the minds of serious young vocalists! The competition in their musical and romantic lives makes this book a fast, emotionally engaging read, and the author does a great job of differentiating between the two main characters' voices when they take it in turns to narrate the story. I didn't want the story to end, and can't wait for this author's next book!

One other quick note: the recommended age from the publisher is "12 and up." Due to mature content I would push that lower age limit up to 14.
