Sorta Like a Rockstar
September 10, 2012
17 year old Amber Appleton is a peculiar sort of girl. She is an incorrigible optimist. She is the life of the party, she stands up for the weak, cheers up the elderly, and saves stray dogs, all with never-ending enthusiasm and positivity. Only, as you can expect, such an approach to life is not necessarily healthy. It is too much of a burden to hold up so many people. One day, after a particularly devastating event, Amber can't take it any longer and succumbs to depression. Will she be able to pull through?
Many YA books written today have recycled plots and characters. Sorta Like a Rockstar stands out. Amber’s story is inspiring and heartbreaking. I liked all the characters. I have recommended this to many of our teens. All of them have enjoyed this book.
I am not sure why this book hasn’t been more popular? Is it because the author’s last name starts with a Q? So, if you are looking for a good teen book to read, try this one.
