Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

That was then: Angela has been a child model all her life, the baby on the cake mix box, the cutie pie in the toy commercial. She was mom's pride and joy, the celebri-toast of her tiny town. Back then choices, priorities, and rules were made for her. No one thought to ask 'Gellie' what she wanted to do, nor had she asked herself. She was a sweet and obedient cipher, a plastic angel.

Review:

"The writing moves along well, touching issues of family dissent and emerging individuality with which young teens constantly grapple. It should appeal to many young readers, especially those who love popular music." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Music speaks powerfully to young teens. Folk-rock singer and songwriter Nerissa Nields has written a lyrical novel of a young girl's struggle to break free of everyone else's expectations and find her own voice.
