I read this novel in three days and couldn't put it down.
Stacy
The dialogue is very well done in the book, the characters are believable and the writing is really wonderful.
CandysRaves (and Rants)
I also felt that too much of the first half is Mitchell's story to tell rather than Trevor's.

Trevor Wolff is the vision behind ShapeShifter, the hottest new band. What he lacks in musical talent, he makes up for in attitude. He's a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy, and he plays life according to his own rules. When his best friend and talented band member, Mitchell, finds the girl of his dreams (Kerri, aka "Rusty"), Trevor is forced to reevaluate his own idea of what it means to be Trevor Wolff. His friendship with Mitchell must change, and he begins to wonder if he's ready for a real relationship himself. With a few potentially life-changing decisions in front of him, Trevor has to dig deep and truly question who he is and what's important to him in order to move forward.

The author, Susan Helene Gottfried, has a background in the music industry, and she's given us an inside look at a band on the edge of stardom. The characters of Trevor, Mitchell, and Kerri are well-defined, with Trevor truly as the star of this story. There are several layers of complexity to Trevor in his feelings and his relationships; he doesn't even really understand himself. Conflicted by memories of a hinted past and uncertainty about his future, Trevor's story is an engaging study of emotional growth. It's Trevor's song that reverberates throughout this story, and the background music of other characters is there only to support and reinforce Trevor's own refrain.

In addition to Trevor's other relationships, a special relationship is implied with Kerri; animosity on the outside, but an unexplainable internal connection. I felt this relationship lacked something to help define it. Perhaps it would have been clearer with more backstory on Kerri that could help explain why they had that special connection.

I was first introduced to Trevor Wolff a few years back. It didn't take long for me to swoon and dedicated myself to full Trevor Groupie status. He's so dreamy and so hot. I mean, hello! He's Trevor Wolff! So you may be asking yourself, who exactly Trevor Wolff is... Trevor is the brainchild of an online friend of mine, Susan H Gottfried. He's the bassist for the hottest fictional rock band in history, Shapeshifter, and he's a bad bad bad boy. And well, that, makes my blood boil very nicely indeed.

Susan has had an interesting marketing idea behind her book. She started a blog called the Meet and Greet where we got to know Trevor and his band mates a bit, read some outtakes and swoon over the Wolff hotness. She then took those blog posts together, gave us an intro to each one and released the Demo Tapes 1 and Demo Tapes 2. It took a LONG time (not that I'm bitter) but we finally, at last, have Trevor's Song. Was it worth the wait?

Oh, heck yeah! What a just plain fun read. It will take you back to the early 80s-90s. And for those of you sitting there shaking your head, you know you got your Poison on back in the day! Susan takes us for a wild ride through the world of Shapeshifter, making us laugh so hard we cry and learning things about Trevor and his band mates along the way. It's a wild ride, so you want to hang on tight!

It's not all fun, there are a few serious things going on that keep the story moving forward to a climax that left me wanting to hang the author from the nearest clothesline and beat her with a wooden broom until she spilled! The ending will leave you wanting more. I really like my stories to have a very definitive ending. I like to see it all wrapped up in a pretty blue bow and she used a pink one.

I have to admit, I didn't much like Trevor at the start of this book. He took great pleasure in annoying his friends and altered between a spoiled, narcissistic brat and a clingy, scared child. I did like his best friend, Mitchell, and had to wonder why he put up with Trevor's antics.

Despite my annoyance with Trevor, Gottfried's writing style made the story fun. Her familiarity with the music world brought vivid detail to the band's life. The dialogue and characters felt like I could have been reading the journal of a real-life young band.

About midway through the book, the story really got going. Trevor's challenges forced him to make difficult decisions that tamed his self-involved immaturity. In the end, Gottfried leaves the perfect opening for a sequel. I had a sense that all would be well and that Trevor had grown, though we might have to wait to know that for sure.

Susan Helene Gottfried's ShapeShifter series is a real gem for music fans, industry insiders, and those who like a well-constructed, character-driven novel.

The first two books were a collection of short stories called "The Demo Tapes," both of which I read and enjoyed thoroughly. "Trevor's Song" brings us a more successful band, with ShapeShifter touring, recording and experiencing the fruits of their labors.

Bassist Trevor Wolff is the focus of Gottfried's full length novel, as he faces unanticipated medical problems that could potentially put the entire band's careers on hold. Despite Wolff's deliberate "unlikeability," he is a sympathetic character grappling with numerous issues.

Gottfried's characters are multi-dimensional and interesting, and her insider knowledge of the music industry shines through to those of us who have also been there. Highly recommended.
