In a Nutshell: Battles | Humour | Music | Third hard-hitting book in the hit Rock War series about a Battle of the Bands showdown, by the bestselling author of CHERUB. Rock Wars is now at the halfway mark and only six bands remain. After “near financial collapse” following the contestants' “outrageous behaviour” and subsequent withdrawal of a sponsor, the show now has a brand new backer and has “risen Phoenix-like to become the most watched reality show on British telly”. But there's plenty of music to face offstage as well as on. With one foot still in the school of hard knocks, and the other in hard rock heaven, singer Summer has to get herself back on track after being hit by a motorbike. And cocky Theo’s spending more time mixing with (and winding up) moviemakers at film premieres, and Premier League players at nightclubs than at the mixing desk. And then there’s the shady matter of an undercover investigation, which just goes to show that ambition and fame comes at a cost.
With its heady mix of glamour and grit, and a cast of characters who run the gamut from smart, self-aware cynics to easily led-astrays, this is a seriously addictive read. Put on your finest threads and dive into the mosh pit of a plot that has more pace than a speed metal B-side! ~ Joanne Owen
The Rock War TV show is the most-watched reality show on British telly, and it's only halfway through. Jay, Summer, Dylan and their bands have all made it past the tough Boot Camp stage, into Battle Zone. The last six bands will fight it out until the season's finale, live on Christmas Eve. But it's not all about the music. Summer was hit by a motorbike at the end of Boot Camp. Jay's brother Theo can't keep out of trouble - or out of handcuffs. And Dylan, the outsider, is investigating corruption within the workings of the competition itself. They've got everything to play for...
