Format: Paperback
Just to be clear before I start: I'm a big fan of Lavernes and really admire her vast musical knowledge which was one of the reasons I was pretty stoked when I got her debue book for christmas off my parents. It looked really good, with a tonne of music references which I really appreciated. The characterisation is a bit limp, with the 2 main girls being kinda stereotypical and making it pretty obvious that this is her first book-writing attempt.

On the other hand, there were also a tonne of moments where I really liked Candy Caine (why is it that teen writers think we'll somehow 'empathise with a character more' if they have a really bizarre name?!) and the fact that she, like me, has the dream of wanting to play at Glastonbury, made me look past some of other stuff which didn't really go for me. So everything is going well. Candy has just been given her first guitar, and Laverne does a fab job of decribing exactly how I felt when I picked up MY first guitar. I begin to really like Lavernes heroine....

... and then a leprachaun magically jumps OUT of the guitar and tells Candy that it can make all her dreams come true.

Yeh, that might have been the moment I kinda gave up on it. I was actually pretty dissapointed because it looked so promising and then for some random reason, an annoying fairy starts dictating the plot. I can't help but wonder what Laverne was thinking when she added in THAT little twist. I've also noticed that while the average reviewer gave this book 5 stars, a LOT of these were by parents of the kids who read them. Having told my parents I thought the book was good (since it was a present and all), I wouldn't trust these opinions that much.

This book is SO funny!

Candy Caine is a brill character, a bit of a misfit, and there are some very funny/awkward boy moments that make you feel embarrassed for her! Most of all you feel like you could know her, she's very real and I can really relate to her wanting to get out of her town and get onto bigger things.

Can't wait for the next book!!

I've been a fan of Lauren's for years, so only thought it right to get my daughter this book when I heard about it and I have never heard her so quite in all my life, she loves it and is now on her second read so far

Firstly I didn't know this was a book for children. It might not be, I might still be making a mistake.

SPOILER !!!!!

I liked it until I was surprised by a fairy flying out of a guitar. That threw me a little bit and I nearly gave up then.

I did carry on then and found it to be entertaining and a fun if a little light. There are some things that don't ring true at all (like the whole Glasto bit and just being able to turn up and play) but then again I guess they are not supposed to in a book with a enchanted guitar.

So still confused.

It's a good read and I do have a taste for Candy now so roll on next summer.

Format: Paperback
I read the first chapter of this book only because it was one of many samples included in the World Book Day iPhone app, I didn't know what to expect as we all know the author from the music industry rather than a teen author but judging on the first chapter she's about to make a lot of noise on the literary scene (excuse that bad joke but I had to include it!) The book may be aimed at early teens and although I'm in my mid twenties I'm buying it for myself and I'll keep it for my newborn until she's in her teens, I'm sure she'll find the topics relevant and enjoy it as much as I will.
