The Lovereading4Kids comment
A page-turning who-dunnit races through the gloss and the grit on the music business. Five school girls from London set up a band and enter a talent contest. Glamorous Harper, their singer and the force behind them, is going to fight to succeed at all costs; she will win the trip to California for the band. For each of Toni, Lucy, Iza and Robyn there is as much commitment but they are less confident and far less sure that it will all work out. Their worries are well founded – all too soon the girls find put about another much, much darker side of the music business.
Drummer Girl by Bridget Tyler
It was supposed to be the summer of her life. Instead, 17-year-old Lucy finds her best friend Harper shot dead in an LA swimming pool. How did it come to this? Lucy Gosling is the drummer in Crush, a rock band formed by five London schoolgirls that has just won the UK semi-final of an international talent contest. But when the band lands in Hollywood for the big final, things are not quite as they seem. The band's lead singer, Harper, has just one thing on her mind - using sex, drugs and rock and roll, not to mention Crush itself, to win back her bad-news ex-boyfriend. Lucy must decide whether she's playing to Harper's tune, or setting the rhythm for the rest of the band.
