One particular thing I especially appreciated and enjoyed was its message about fame and fortune. For those young people who want to become a famous singer or actor, or famous in some other field of endeavor, their reading this book is a must. It has a good message not only for today's youth, but for our celebrity-worshipping society at large.
Clean and highly entertaining, I thoroughly enjoyed this read!
Arianna Stefanoff, Ari, is a high school student with little time to spare. She studies hard and pushes herself even harder in her quest to master the Violin. Hours of practice fill her days – her art consuming her to a degree with worries her parents, even if her Father is a fellow musician and member of the St. Louis Philharmonic. Classic music is in her soul – a fact that makes Ari a bit different from her classmates, even her best friend Kara Soreson. Kara is a lover of all things Rock and Roll, the music, the looks and the artists themselves. Her most recent obsession is 16 year old Reid Lavelle, a musician whose talent is described as ‘Absolutely Wild!’ On a whim, Ari agrees to enter a contest to meet the dreamy artist – setting her up for an adventure the likes of which this violin player never imagined.
This book is perfect the perfect teenage tale – young girl turns her nose up at egotistical famous young man yet the attraction and intrigue is there. It’s a great setup and a perfectly charming story. I loved it.
As the title suggests it truly is a 'sweet teen romance.' I'm 'one of those moms' that is careful what she allows her children to read. Yes, even my teens. And this is perfectly clean in every way. Not even a kiss, not one single bad word (in anyone's sense of bad words). But it was cute. It was a very quick read and I can see this book being a good one for a teen girl that doesn't enjoy reading but needs to improve her reading skills. It took me 3 hours to complete (ok, I read a lot and I read fast), and it held my attention the entire time. While teen books are certainly not my first pick, I liked it. It was truly 'sweet.'
It is however clearly older than any teen. This was certainly not recently written. There are no cell phones, computers, and one character is using a Walkman. Most teens probably don't even know what that is. And at the beginning, there is some odd use of words to from one character who is supposed to be 'cool' but sounds like she's from the 50s. If you can look past that this is cute. I think it is time for a redo (update) on this book. Enjoy
Rockin into Romance was an uplifting sweet read. Arianna, an upcoming violinist, is urged by her best friend to enter a contest to win a weekend date with the rising rock star, Reid Lavelle. When Arianna is declared the winner her best friend snubs her. Arianna is torn between her excitement of going to New York on her dream date and her friend all of a sudden turning against her. As it turns out, the weekend dream date isn't anything like she expected. Can two young people so different find anything in common? In fear of dropping a spoiler, you will have to read it and find out.
The story is a wonderfully crafted one with interesting characters that can be enjoyed by YA and adults as well. I had a hard time putting it down. I look forward to reading more from Norma Jean Lutz.
