Author: Kevin Emerson
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: April 29th, 2o14
Summer was the manager of last year’s hottest band, until they got a record contract and she got dumped by both the band and its lead singer. Now she’s got a new band and a new boy but both become a challenge when they learn his father was a rock star who died tragically and left some hidden songs behind.
Why I Would Recommend It:
Readers who are into the music scene will appreciate the scene setting and references Emerson works into the story. Summer has a strong voice and it’s nice to see a teen girl character with a talent for business. While I think this series probably could have been one book I doubt most readers will care in the end.
Who I Would Recommend it To:
Exile has good potential with both avid and reluctant readers, especially for those into the music scene. Pass it along to readers of Wise Young Fool or The Disenchantments.
