Description-

  • When you fall in love with a rock star, anything can happen. . . .

    Libby In an instant, Libby's life went from picture-perfect to a nightmare. After surviving a terrible car accident, Libby is abandoned by her father and left with her controlling aunt. A new town, a new school, no friends--Libby is utterly alone. But then she meets Peter.

    Peter The lead singer in a rock band with his brothers, Peter hates that his parents overly manage his life.

    Constantly surrounded by family, Peter just wants to get away. And when he meets Libby, he's finally found the one person who only wants to be with him, not the rock star.

    But while Peter battles his family's growing interference in both his music and his personal life, Libby struggles with her aunt, who turns nastier each day. And even though Libby and Peter desperately want to be together, their drastically different lives threaten to keep them apart forever.

About the Author-

  • Angie Stanton never planned on writing books--she wanted to be a Rockette. However, growing up in rural America with her brothers' 4-H pigs as pets, she found that dance didn't quite work out. Instead, she became an avid daydreamer. After years of perfecting stories in her head, she began to write them down, and the rest is history. When not writing, she loves watching natural disaster movies, going to Broadway musicals, and dipping French fries in chocolate shakes. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

    Gr 9 Up-These titles follow the lives of teen heartthrobs in a family rock band. In Rock and a Hard Place, Peter, the lead singer, falls for Libby, a girl he meets at a nature preserve. Their relationship evolves, but tragic circumstances put Libby in a group home and the couple must find a way to stay together. In Snapshot, Adam, the guitarist, meets Marti at photography camp. They must face the death of Marti's grandmother, a pregnancy scare, and a few near-death injuries. Both books are told in alternating points of view between the two main characters. There are many similarities in plot and female characterization between the two books: both girls are creative, artsy blondes who come from strikingly different backgrounds than the charmed rock stars. Both girls also deal with troubling home lives, complete with absent or unfit parents. The eldest Jamieson attempts to spoil each younger brother's relationship for the sake of the band, and each boy storms off, only to eventually get what he wants. Girls looking for romance and light realistic fiction will show the most interest in these titles.-Adrienne L. Strock, Chicago Public Library
