At first, I was hoping this book had some cool other culture associations with it, but from this description, I might have lost hope.

Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like . . . until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything.

Now she’s the lead singer of the band Melbourne, performing in sold-out clubs every night and living on a bus with three gorgeous and talented guys. The bummer is that the band barely tolerates her. And when teen hearthrob Lucas Rivers take an interest in her, Chelsea is suddenly famous, bringing Melbourne to the next level—not that they’re happy about that. Her feelings for Beckett, Melbourne’s bassist, are making life even more complicated.

Chelsea only has the summer tour to make the band—and their fans—love her. If she doesn’t, she’ll be back in Michigan for senior year, dying a slow death. The paparazzi, the haters, the grueling schedule . . . Chelsea believed she could handle it. But what if she can’t?

Okay, so right off the bat, I’m confused. She thought she knew what it was like, and then she was a star. And after she was a star, she lost a stupid TV talent show and went home with her tail between her legs and got a phone call.

Umm… so when exactly was she a star? Before or after that stint on TV? Why would such an unlikeable person get the gig? Why her, and why not a million others, who’d get along better with the band and have the fans eating out of her hand from the get-go? Is she in high school? College? What’s she a senior of?

Yeah. Color me confused.

Someone send me a copy so I can figure all this out ’cause right now, it’s kinda seeming like a hot mess.
