This was actually really good! I love the way it's all a flash back and then goes back to the present where the problem is finally resolved! Great, and I'm impressed with all of his books. It made me not expect the ending - at all. Not many books take me by surprise, especially when they've made it seem predictable for the rest of the book ... seriously, you'll just have to read it.

I was totally into Jack Weyland when I was in Jr. High. They are great teen books. I liked them. This is my favorit one (one of the girls name is Amber :)) It is High School kids that are in a singing group. It is fun totally cheesy but fun.

I liked this Weyland because there was a larger group of main characters. I would have loved to have such a group of friends during my high school years. And again I took with me a few lessons from the book.

I liked this book but it seemed to be more like a compliation of past charachters written together rather than an orignal story. So in a way I felt cheated out of a new story when I read it.

Another staple from my growing years. We had this book on tape and I listened to it lots-- it's about a singing group and a best-friend romance. What's not to love?

Recommends it for: Adolescents
You really would need to be LDS to have a grasp on the culture, but the morals presented are great for anyone. As a teenager bursting with sensibility, I loved it. :)
this bool was sensational. it makes you want to keep reading even when you have something to do at the momment. very diffrent people in it than the book.
