Publisher Comments:

"I don't wanna be famous andlt;BRandgt; I don't wanna be who you are andlt;BRandgt; I don't wanna be a trademark andlt;BRandgt; I don't wanna be a wannabe superstar andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; I wanna be infamous, andlt;BRandgt; Incapable, andlt;BRandgt; unfaceable, andlt;BRandgt; untraceable..." andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; That's Mira M. And this is the story of her unforgettable life — as a kid alone in a junkyard tire swing, to her escape from Croatia at age nine in a Marshall amp road case in the rear of her uncle Lou's van. A musician, he hands her the key to her future: a guitar. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; When she's fourteen, Mira meets Melody, Rosa, and Jackson, three teens who stow away from Ghana in a ship-ping container and end up — to their surprise — in Hamburg, Germany. What stories they have! And what a story the four of them, plus Kralle (a little older and wiser) and Zucka (the record producer's son), share on the way to the fame that all of them covet — except Mira, even after the MTV Awards show in Barcelona. Her song lyrics tell her truth. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; But are they her lyrics? Her music? She swears so. But who listens, now that she's eighteen — and dead?
