The mysteries of her past seem to be unraveling, and she’s no longer certain she wants to know those answers, or how knowing about her past wil

“Don’t worry, Francine. No one in the band does drugs.”



This was a good second instalment, and I was so excited to finally find out who Lark’s father was!

“I’ll tell you the whole story, but you’ve got to promise me that you will not contact him in any way.”



Lark was once again very stubborn and headstrong in this book, she knew what she wanted, and she was determined to get it

Once again, Lisa Orchard nails the very soul of being a conflicted teen caught between loyalty to her friends, her mother and her desire to know more about secrets that are kept just out of her reach. Lark is a talented musician, with a band good enough to play for small crowds, but even her drummer/best friend is acting strange. Some say he is involved with drugs, but lark refuses to believe it, until certain events cause her to question the boy she has known and trusted forever, right when the ...more

STARLIGHT!!!!

I loved this book and thoroughly enjoyed it more than the first one, I loved all the adorable scenes between Bean and Lark! And the music? Boy was that intense!

Finally! It was about time Lark opened the box and finds out who her father is. The way it was going, I was thinking I would reach the end of the book and never find out!

The only thing bad about this was the denial Lark kept telling herself especially when she could se

Actual rating - 3.5

Lark was an okay character in this, although I did think she was a bit naive at times. It was obvious what was happening regarding one of her friends, but she just wouldn't believe it. I just wanted her to open her eyes and see what was really happening.

This installment was better than the first. It didn't seem to drag quite as much, and the progress with finding out who her father was definately made things a bit more interesting.

Looking forward to how things pan out in boo

I thought this was an okay continuation to the series. It's on the shorter side which was nice since it made it very easy to read, however it seemed very repetitive (I don't know how many times I was told that after Lark jammed she got extremely hungry, but it was a lot). So this book wasn't as enjoyable to me as the first book, Gideon Lee, but I did still like it somewhat thus the three stars.

I still liked Lark, but she did seem more naive in this book and unwilling to see what was right in fr

It was better than the first book and a bit more engaging. My first thought in reading the second book was that how realistic it was including the emotions. The things Lark is going through with her personal life and with her bandmates. Despite Lark having an improvement in personality there were some things that never changed.

Of course, while there might be good things happening there were more not so good things happening like with her relationship with her mother, the secrets of finding who

Actual Rating: 4.35

This is a great read. It is a YA contemporary story with music infused to it. I love the MC. Lark Singer is a strong willed girl with the hopes of one day becoming a rock star and finding her biological father. I thought the story was great. The secondary characters were great as well. Also, I thought the ending was good. I am glad to find out the identity of her father. (view spoiler)

I loved writing this story and watching Lark grow and change through out it. This is a great coming of age story that tells the tale of overcoming obstacles and getting through setbacks to follow your dreams. Every teen should read this series!

This is the continuation of the Starlight Chronicles series and flows smoothly from book one, Gideon Lee, which I also enjoyed. We are back with Lark, Bean and Stevie whose band is still practicing for the competition which is now only a few weeks to go. We are immersed in their practice sessions both at Pearl’s, where they play 70’s and 80’s music, and in Lark’s garage, where they play the music they’

Stevie, Bean and Lark makeup the band Starlight. They are preparing for their first competition. The winner of the competition gets a trip to New York and so much more. Lark is trying to keep her mind on the band, it's not easy though. She still has questions about her father. Her mother made her promise not to contact him.
Meanwhile, something is going on with Bean. He's late for rehearsals and disappears for hours. Lark thinks it's because of his older brother. She's in for a big shock and m

This is the second book in Lisa Orchard's trilogy and you must read Gideon Lee first.

In this book Lark is beginning to get closer to the competition but things are getting a bit crazy in her life. Her mom, Francine, no longer wants people in their house due to some things vanishing and Lark is not sure what is going on with Bean.

Then of course Lark doesn't give up on her quest for information on her dad but if she discovers the truth will it bring her and her mom closer or further apart?

Lark Singer is the 2nd book in the Starlight Chronicles and what a fantastic book this was!

It carries on straight from the first book where Lark and her band mates, Bean and Stevie are still practising like mad for the big band competition and Lark is still trying to dig up the past and find out who her really father is. Her relationship with her mother is still fraught but thankfully, her love for Bean keeps her sane.

When Bean begins to

what do you do when one of the main people you trusted stole from you but not only you but your family .
do you call them out on it or let it slide and deny the truth .
or do you tell them to either get help or lose the friendship that they have had since childhood .
and what if by doing that it hurts the band but also to live a lie is to allow the stealing to continue .
so what is a girl to do . deny the truth or face it .

This sequel was much more enjoyable than Gideon Lee. I don't know what changed but despite Lark's annoying rants and rages, she seemed to have really developed from the previous book. I also found the plot more engaging. There was an added emotional angle and a little mystery to keep us reading. The story flowed really well and sucked you in.

I have to say that I quite enjoyed this and I am really looking forward to the next sequel. I don't know when the release date is but I am hoping

Review for Starlight, Gideon Lee and Lark Singer:
First let me start by saying that I appreciate all the hard work and dedication it takes to write a book, I like reading ARC’s because it gives me a chance to read something outside of my normal genre so here where my dislikes and likes about the book
Formatting was good, not sure if it was because it was an ARC but when I turned my iPad sideways it made the page weird and I had to scroll down to finish the page, I’m someone who reads in the tub, i

Lark Singer, is much better than the first book. This story picks up hours after the previous one ends and once again revolves around the band competition and Lark’s quest to learn the identity of her father. The twist in this story is that Lark’s mother is convinced that Bean is stealing from them and she fears it is to support a drug habit. Lark has a new found, maybe not respect, but rather a regard for her mother. She knows her mother is probably right, but being a typical teen and the years ...more

I must say that this book is better than the first one in the series which I am happy about! I have a better feeling and feel more happy after finished reading it. It is still pretty avarage and dont stick out but it is still enjoyable to read even for an adult. This is a quick read and I did read it in one sitting. Even if it is better the main character of the book annoy the hell out of me and I really cant connect with her and maybe that is one of the things that make me less hyped over the b ...more

Coming into a series in the middle is never easy, but I easily understood what had happened (more or less) in the first book. I found Lark to be an interesting character, if a little naive and far too willing to turn a blind eye to her friend's problem with drugs. I liked her connection to the music but there were several terms that were repeated: "riff", "jam", etc. The end was abrupt but I have a fairly good idea what happens in the next book.
