Book Review- For the Record

I finished reading For the Record by Charlotte Huang a few nights ago for an Around the World ARC Tour.

From Goodreads:

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?

I've always loved stories about characters that are famous but I think a rock star is a new one for me.

I really liked Chelsea.  I thought that she stayed true to herself for the most part.  Even the dating of the movie star--I mean what teenager who is suddenly in the limelight would turn down their heartthrob??

And I felt so bad for the drama she had in her past.  How horrible!  And what she went through with her best friend towards the end of the story.  I knew her pain but I could never be that forgiving.

This was a light, fun look into a rock star's world.  And I sure wouldn't hate it if there was ever going to be a sequel!

I gave this book a rating of 4/5.

For the Record will be released on November 10. 2015.

*FTC Disclosure: I was given this book for free for an honest review as part of the Around the World Tours.
