Join me for a killer 10's List from main character Chelsea and her tips for being on the road, and work your luck in the giveaway at the bottom! Thanks for stopping in!
About The Book
For The Record
Author: Charlotte Huang
Release Date: November 10th, 2015
Publisher: Delacorte BFYR
If Almost Famous were a YA novel... a raw, honest debut celebrating music, friendship, romance, and life on the road.
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 heartthrob 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?
Chelsea’s Top Ten Rules For Life On Tour
Chelsea’s touring acumen improves pretty quickly but not everyone’s does. Here’s her helpful cheat sheet for those who are slower on the uptake.
10. Don’t go #2 in the bathroom.
9. Buy earplugs and flip-flops before the start of tour.
8. Hydrate early so you don’t have to use the bathroom while everyone is sleeping.
7. Keep track of your device chargers.
6. Don’t miss bus call. If you do, be prepared to figure out how you’re getting to the next city.
5. Try not to get stuck with an upper bunk.
4. Bring something special from home to keep in your bunk.
3. Do your own dishes.
2. Don’t eat food that smells.
1. Don’t bother trying to figure out which clothes are clean and which are dirty. They’re all dirty.
