Glowing 5- Star Review for YA Novel — Rockin’ into Romance!

Be A Novelist   Agatha Miller

Love is music, and music is what rocks our world – I simply fell in love with this teen-romance as it is timeless and sweet and made me turn back in time and revert to my high-school memories, something I haven’t done in a while. School, love, friendship and passion for music is what governs this story. I found it very interesting how Norma Jean Lutz managed to create the whole plot around music. Ari, the main female character of this romance, is the timeless role model for teenagers : she loves music, she is serious about her school, she hangs out with her friends. she has fun and she falls in love. Reid, the main male character is, on the other hand the “Justin Beiber” of the 90’s, good looking, famous at only 16 years old, wanted by many girls, except Ari. When Ari and Reid meet and are forced to spend time together – spark will arise. A great teen romance for readers of any age.

Clash of Cultures

Be A Novelist

Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Handel – Arianna Stefanoff is familiar with the works of all these and more. Growing up in a musical family, she has an intimate knowledge of classical composers and compositions. On the other hand, her knowledge of the latest rock stars and their current hits borders on zilch.

 Being steeped in classical music blended well while the Stefanoffs lived in the culturally-heavy city of Boston. But once her symphony-conductor father accepted the conductor position for the St. Louis Symphony, Arianna is suddenly catapulted out of her comfort zone.

 Her new set of friends have scant appreciation for her flavor of music. She doesn’t think much of theirs either. Then her friend, Kara, persuades her to enter a contest – a contest in which the winner is treated to a weekend date in New York City with rock star, Reid Lavelle.

 Explosions ensue when, against all the odds, Arianna wins. The girls at her school are not only jealous but furious knowing she’s not even a fan of Reid’s. Reid’s ego is mangled when he learns his date knows nothing about his music. All signs point to disaster.

 Is Arianna destined to be ostracized forever just because of a dumb contest? And could it possibly be that her own narrow-mindedness regarding Reid is aiding in her misery?
