There's so much living that has nothing to do with what's important. Without singing, I'd be in that kind of life. I don't want to grow up by putting the best part of myself aside.

This is really a 3.5 for me, almost a 4.0. It's very well written with some enjoyable dialogue and clever insights. I don't know just how faithfully it depicts the music world in the USA but it certainly comes across as very authentic and offers up a most unpleasant villain, as well as the two attractive lead characters who the author brings very much to life. Definitely a recommended read. I reckon it would make a good film.
