First, there was a match. In 1992, Tarah Kiersey wasn t feeling very optimistic about her life. From dead-end jobs to dead-end relationships, she failed to see how anything could ever improve. But at least, she had her music.

"First there was a match, then there was a spark, and now there's Fire!", chronicling the rise, triumphs and heartbreaks of a band in the 90's. Mima clearly has put a lot of research, effort and heart into her first novel. She takes an honest and unflinching look at the music industry and the ups and downs of the decade. Tarah's story drew me in and I finished it in a half a weekend ;)
