Andrea | 9 comments I read this back when I was young and it was about two guys who dress as chicks to join an all girl band to perform. It was in like seattle I think. a mobster falls for one of the "girls" and the other "girl" falls in love with the lead singer. Its not some like it hot but same premise I think

Andrea--how long ago were you "young"? 2 years, 10 years, 40 years? And was it old or new then? And children's, YA or Adult?

Jim (jimmaclachlan) If the book was from the 90's, I would think that would narrow it down better than Andrea's age.

The Elusive (fridelain) | 65 comments Sounds like the plot of the movie Some Like It Hot (1959)

Tab (tabbrown) | 5013 comments I ran into a book with a similar to yours while looking for something else. The Boys in the Band The Boys in the Band (Rock 'n' Roll Summer, No 1) by Todd Strasser .

The Amazon description says: Pretending to be girls in order to join an all-girl music group, Frank and Eddie find their plans thwarted when Frank falls in love with Sharkbait Joe's girlfriend--and Sharkbait Joe falls in love with Eddie.
