Rock War Synopsis

Meet Jay. Summer. And Dylan. Jay plays guitar, writes songs and dreams of being a rock star. But his ambitions are stifled by seven siblings and a terrible drummer. Summer works hard at school, looks after her nan and has a one-in-a-million singing voice. But can her talent triumph over her nerves? Dylan is happiest lying on his bunk smoking, but his school rugby coach has other ideas, and Dylan reluctantly joins a band to avoid crunching tackles and icy mud. They're about to enter the biggest battle of their lives. And there's everything to play for. A spectacular start to the new series from Robert Muchamore, bestselling author of CHERUB - read on with Rock War: The Audition, a story especially written for World Book Day.

Rock War Press Reviews

A new series for teenagers and it's a sure-fire winner: daring, pacy and authentic. Muchamore is second to none when it comes to getting inside teenagers heads and Rock War is a rollercoaster read, full of breathtaking twists and turns. Daily Express

Bursting with drama. The Daily Telegraph

Best known for his thrilling CHERUB teen -spy novels, this first in a new series about budding rock stars arrives with high expectations... a gritty, uncompromising read... there's plenty of potential here... turn the volume up to 11. The Daily Mail

A belter. The Financial Times

A pacy and enjoyable read. The Daily Telegraph

Muchamore's great skill is in painting young characters that feel real with a broad brushstroke so that readers are able to transpose their lives and concerns onto them... Muchamore explores this hinterland with fluid ease and skill... a strong start for a promising new series. * * * * Books for Keeps

There is so much more to this fast, exciting novel for today's teenagers than just a story about kids forming rock bands... a pacy, hard-hitting novel for today. School Librarian

Headbangingly brilliant. -- Janette Wolf The Independent
