This book was great character study set against the backdrop of the music world. The format shouldn't work, but it does: each chapter features a different character/set of characters and is told from differing perspectives (thankfully, not labeled as the title so we can just figure it out) jumping around in time. One chapter is even a Power Point presentation...a little difficult to read on my nook, but very creative. Watching how the characters' lives intertwined was fascinating and as soon as I finished I thought "I wish I could go back and start over to look for certain things" again. A really nice surprise.
