I have to be honest and let you know that I am a massive fan of musicals, theatre and those TV shows where the characters are all learning to be dancers or singers or actors. Honestly, anything that has something to do with performance in and I am usually a massive sucker for them. (And has anyone else soaked up ALL of the Australian films on gymnasium things?) So when this book fell into my inbox, I knew that it was one that I simply had to read. And I am incredibly glad I did! I truly loved ...more

This might be Nettie’s only saving grace, the chance to start over and realise her dream. Things are never this simple of course.

First, Nettie’s

Rather fittingly, I read this just after starting at uni; it`s about a girl called Nettie beginning a course at performing arts school and trying to navigate her grief of losing her mum, and the issues this causes in terms of her singing. Luckily, my uni is (thus far) nowhere near as brutal a place as Dukes- this book deals with some really tough issues such as disordered eating/body dysmorphia, homophobia, both physical and emotional bullying and parental bereavement/grief- and I would ...more

I will write a more considered review, but I just *adore* this book! There’s a gorgeous romantic plot, it deals with some really tough issues in a light-handed way, and you can’t go wrong with a book that references the epic Grease 2...

Excellent. Loved the main character, really rooted for her, and enjoyed spending time in the musical theatre world conjured up.
