I don’t know that Manning did much research on this one and I also hated the ending. She’s somewhat taken aback when her little group starts to get attention and finds herself quickly out of her depth and struggling to find her way with a boatload of distractions pushing and pulling at her. Then Dean and T come along, join the band, and begin to take things far further than Molly ever really wanted. The band get signed, and go on tour, where things start to unravel as things don’t turn out as Molly expects. But then again is that a comment on how fickle fame can be? Molly’s savvy enough to realize where she’s headed — and, no matter how hard it is, she knows what she’s got to do.

The heroine, Molly is smart, quirky and sometimes slightly bratty. I love how Adorkable is some kind of Epilogue part 2 of Guitar girl. This book is about all the things that take toll on a band. I enjoyed this more than Adorkable but Adorkable is a whole different kind of fun. I dont cry for anything, not books, movies or funerals. Description Seventeen-year-old Molly’s band was always just about being a girl – singing Hello Kitty Speedboat and pretending to play instruments with her best mates Jane and Tara.

Guitar Girl : Sarra Manning :

Don’t even get me started on Jane. This book is ridiculous, it will give tweens the wrong impression of the music business, and this entire book is laced with inappropriate mishaps.

At times, they could be a little immature but I grew very fond of them. They’re just okay, maybe even a little worse, but then along comes Dean, who pushes Molly’s buttons ever so much, but he promises super stardom if he and his friend T can join.


Although, Molly is very immature in worldly manners. I loved this book sooooo much, and if you are looking for a read that builds up to a great climax, and then leaves you numb with the after effects, you have found it. But part of the strength of Guitar Girl lies in the fact that we readers pick up the clues Molly keeps missing.

I can’t say it’s the best, most well written filmm in existence. I actually really wanted her band to be real.

And what I knew was that boys never fancied you back, and that working weekends in the Best Buys convenience store was slowly sucking the soul out of me, and that there wasn’t a problem in the world that couldn’t be helped with coprous gutiar of choclate. I liked how their relationship progressed, frankly, even though I didn’t like him much. The burn and the horrors of being on the road are covered far better in this novel.
