Candy knows she's destined for bigger things and is determined to leave boring small town Bishopspool and make it big in the music business. Oh – and find BioDad, her real dad, who will most definitely be cool and, of course, will verify her very own specialness (of which she is secretly convinced).With the help of a battered old guitar and her Fairy Godbrother, Candy and her band mates will attempt to make it in the star-studded, crazy world of rock and roll! Hilarious adventures from the witty pen of cooler-than-cool debut author Lauren Laverne.
I'm a huge fan of Lauren Laverne and was intrigued when I saw she had a debut novel out on audio, even if it is aimed at young adults. It did take a couple of listens to Lauren in the first few chapters to get used to her voice. Lauren speaks a lot quicker than the American narrators that are on most books I seem to be listening to lately. That aside, I started to get into the story and could see where it was going. Lauren is a very descriptive writer and her words brought back fun festival memories for me and it was enjoyable to see how an odd ball 15 year old, like Candy Cane, could become popular and well liked by her peers. In all, the novel is well written and read by Lauren and by the end of it there is a sense of happiness and well being. I look forward to listening to her next book.
