I gave this book 5 stars as it invoked so many memories with being an ex usher in the Glasgow Appolo theatre, the descriptions of the Apollo was down to a tee especially the red sticky carpets. The book is based around Meg a 14 year old Glaswegian of the 80s, with not such a good home life, who helped her mother, a cleaner of the appollo & Tam the manager doing odd jobs & an 80's Rock band. I loved how Colette Coin the author describes people, scenes & emotions Sufficiently for me visualise the situation/ area & feel the emotions without going into the minutest details like other authors, there is nothing worse reading a book when an author spends pages or more on descriptions. Something happens to Meg that forces her leave her home in Glasgow & she becomes the Rock bands goffer. She travels the world with the band, learns, loves (Kyle the rock band member) grows up & makes mistakes, like most of us do when growing up. There were times in the book I thought to myself, "really Meg, how did you not see that coming"' then I remembered she was so young. Eventually the band returns to Glasgow & you discover why she left, although I did figuer it out before this. Meg's life with Kyle has lots of highs & lows, I did shed a few tears near the end as could feel how she felt with the loss, it was very emotional. I won't tell you how it finishes, but it's not too bad.

Plenty of evocative memories of 80's Glasgow (although a few minor errors giving away the author's relatively young age). This is a well-written and compelling story which would make the basis of a great film should the 80's revival scene build further. Collette obviously loves her music as the detail about the nuts and bolts of touring has been well researched and the storyline seems to glide effortlessly through the book with a neat twist at the end. Meg (the main character in the book) is fully fleshed and comes across as a very familiar character to many Glasgow youngsters growing up in this era. I recommend that you give this a try as it neatly straddles the boundary between chick-lit and rock nerd.

Meg Burns is a bright but poor 16 year old growing up in 1980s Glasgow when circumstances lead her to go off on tour with MindSet, a hot up and comin Aussie rock band. Through Europe and America she sees sights, and experiences life that she'd never dreamed of. Having grown up in Glasgow in the 1980s, some of this story felt so familiar it was like wrapping myself up in my favourite blanket. But the book also explored places I've never been, so it was exciting and exotic at the same time. A real page turner, a gripping story filled with characters I really cared about & what was going to happen to them. A great read, well done Colette

A very good holiday read. The main character is strong, clever and resilient and it's very easy to care about her. There's intrigue from the start and unexpected twists along the way. I can imagine enjoying the nostalgia but you don't have to have been around Glasgow in the 80's to appreciate the story. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

From start to finish this is a seriously addictive story written in a style that grabs you in from the first page to the last. It's the story of never giving up on life, No matter your starting position. A huge thank you to the author.
