A bittersweet story of friendship and loyalty as two talented teens try to cope with the pressures of fame. It's a beautifully written, thought-provoking tale which deals honestly with the modern pressures of cyberbullying and social networking. What happens if you betray your best friend, on TV in front of millions? The whole world lines up to judge you. When singers Sashaand Rose reach the finals of Killer Act and are told that one of them must go - they make a decision that will change their lives...

A Piece of Passion from the Publisher, Barry Cunningham

Grrrr … don’t you want to shake some TV talent show judges? But just when you think these competitions are all about wicked manipulation, real-life moments of humility and magic break through. Sophia Bennett’s new novel brilliantly shows both sides of the music game, and the perils of online fame and blame. My own ability to mime to pop songs is apparently not enough to qualify!


You Don't Know Me by Sophia Bennett

It was all so good. Sasha and Rose. Best friends in a band, singing together. Right up to the finals of Killer Act when the judges tell them one of them must go. Suddenly their friendship is put to the ultimate test. On TV in front of millions. Two girls. One huge mistake. Can they ever forgive each other?
