Summary

Meet Jay. Summer. And Dylan. Jay plays guitar, writes songs and dreams of being a rock star. But his ambitions are stifled by seven siblings and a terrible drummer. Summer works hard at school, looks after her nan and has a one-in-a-million singing voice. But can her talent triumph over her nerves? Dylan is happiest lying on his bunk smoking, but his school rugby coach has other ideas, and Dylan reluctantly joins a band to avoid crunching tackles and icy mud.

They're about to enter the biggest battle of their lives. And there's everything to play for.

A spectacular start to the new series from Robert Muchamore, best-selling author of Cherub.

Dullness!

I have to say, I'm disappointed by the narrator. The story is so good and it never had a chance to blossom under this dull narrative. The plot sort of scooped up the narrator's dullness . I enjoyed it but it was lacking a good voice.
Muchamore was let down in this one.

A amazing start to a new series.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes i would, it is very different than most authors have tried before. it had a good element of susspence in it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourit character was summer smith, this was because she was a sreight down to erth girl who was not turned by all the fame that being a rock star might bring, also she was a fighter and somebody willing to help others. she also shown guilt when she got involved in trouble.

Which character – as performed by Matthew Morgan – was your favourite?

I liked the way he did theo's character as he made him sound like a bad boy whichh is what he was.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When summer stood up to the head of year in her scool and had a write go at him due to her being punnished for trying to look after her nan.

Any additional comments?

While i liked the narater, his ablility to do accents was not really explored. however i gave him a five because i feel that he probably realised this and kept his naration of the story to his normal accent rather than trying to do accents e might fail at.
