Although the writing was good and I would read another book by this author, the storyline fell flat for me. Nothing about this story was realistic. Maggie was supposed to be 20 but sounded more like a whiny 15-year-old. Maybe that's because her parents are country superstars and she has been indulged her whole life. She starts out really liking her ex-boyfriend Cole but for some reason I couldn't understand she starts feeling attraction for her voice teacher -- that Cole got for her. Maybe that's what the younger generation does now but I thought it was fickle and strange for a woman that age. Her parents are getting a divorce because her father cheated on her and then you find out her mother was pregnant by another man....so that means SHE cheated as well. WTF?? Maybe a younger adult would find this interesting but this middle-aged former groupie did not.
Maggie Roads is the daughter of country sensations but at the age of 20 she seems kind of lost in her head trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. Everyone is always leaving her including her best friend going off to college. Then she finds out Cole is leaving the band, he was her first and only boyfriend and suddenly she is overwhelmed. Maggie moves out of her parents house, she is a bit naïve about the world. She writes wonderful lyrics but dreams of singing. Unfortunately her voice needs some help. Definitely a coming of age book with a few twists and turns. Great read.
Well written story about a coming of age young woman whose parents are a famous country singing couple. Maggie just wants to sing but can't carry a tune. She writes great great lyrics and her parents have been pushing her in the direction of song writer. As Maggie works to make her dream come true she has to figure out what she really wants.
If you are looking for a light and entertaining read pick up a copy of "Out of Tune".
I genuinely enjoyed this sweet surprise of a YA novel in which engaging characters are navigating the sometimes painful, complicated changes and challenges of life, career, and relationships. I was also more than ready for two heroes who are considerate, sensitive and respectful of women as well as of each other. Both of my thumbs are up!
This is a heart warming story about a young lady trying to find her independence and figuring out who and what she wants in life.Parts are a bit heart breaking,other pasts have you cheering for her..This tale shows that one can overcome anything ,if you want it bad enough.
This was such a beautifully written book. A great story line and real people, even as " celebrities " are not really everyday people it's how they come across to us . The story twists and turns and had surprises, good and bad !!!! I really loved it .
