    One thought on “Guitar Girl”

    1. This book starts light, but it doesn't take long before you start seeing hints of seriousness. Which is too bad as it can't really bear the load.Molly just wants to sing about things that matter to her—even while acknowledging that those things aren't world-shattering or expecting others to find them interesting, themselves. 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 distr [...]

    2. There are not many books that should make you cry- and when it happens, you have read a book you cannot forget. This book is Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning. This book is a heart-breaker. I loved this book so much. And it shook me to the core, and you will think about this book long after you’ve put it down.Molly Montgomery. She is just a normal British school girl. She has two very normal friends: Tara, a silent no-nonsense girl, and Jane, the school’s resident tramp- and that isn’t an offen [...]

    3. I’m a sucker for the “high-school-kid-in-a-local-band-scene-almost-makes-it-big-and-learns-a-little-something-about-himself/herself-in-the-process” novel, Guitar Girl is not as sophisticated or intense as Nick & Norah’s infinite playlist but it’s just as good.Sarra Manning is amazing (if you haven’t read the Diary of a Crush trilogy, you absolutely must because it’ uber-cool, it’s everything a YA love lit should be) brilliant, I read all her books and I truly believe she is o [...]

    4. Well, this sort of left me in a funk. The storyline goes that an average girl learned three chords on a guitar and then made a band, became super famous and toured America.I've just never heard anyone say becoming famous only took playing one gig and then hitting it big. It just felt really forced, and unrealistic. I don't know that Manning did much research on this one and I also hated the ending. I saw the point of it, but I still hated it. This story just left me with a bitter taste in my mou [...]

    5. I found this book at a bargain store near me and I can honestly say this was one of the best purchases I had made in my entire life. Not only did it surprise me when I figured out that this was an English book, but it pulled me in straight from page one. I first heard about it through a friend and when I saw the title, I remembered how oddly familiar it sounded only to remember of the recommendation. I would highly recommend this book. It's fresh and funny and just all together perfect in every [...]

    6. Loved the premise of this book, the main character and the story's satirical look at rock bands. Unfortunately, the middle sags with the character's immaturity which is to be expected of a teenage protagonist. I just had little patience seeing it through to the end.

    7. I just really enjoy this author's style. Very similar in voice to Let's Get Lost. Also, just a random note, the font inside is excellent.

    8. If that's the voice of our generation, then our generation is royally screwed.gotta give it 5 stars for being awesome. waaaah! So I read Adorkable first. Not advisable but it's okay. I find myself perusing the pages of Adorkable just to read about Molly and Jane again :) I love how Adorkable is some kind of Epilogue part 2 of Guitar girl. I couldn't even begin to analyze the whys and wherefores of all this frenzied passion, I just didn't want it ever to end.Guitar girl is just so inspirational. [...]

    9. I read this book somewhere around the age of 14-15 and I think it was just the book I needed then, I fell headlong in love with it. I can't say it's the best, most well written book in existence. The five star rating is mainly for what it means to me, I feel like this book has a lot of heart.Guitar Girl follows the rise and fall of 'The Hormones' a band formed by Molly and her two friends in a desperate attempt to be noticed by their fellow peers. The timeline is probably fairly unrealistic with [...]

    10. Original/full review here:Review:If you are the kind of person who only likes to read about the happy-go-lucky side of fame, then this book is not for you.In Guitar Girl, Sarra Manning explores the harsher and more realistic side of being a teenage rock star through her main character, Molly Montgomery. With sharp wit and raw emotions, Molly tells the story of her, and her friends, time in the spotlight. In the beginning, I felt somewhat detached from the story and the characters because of the [...]

    11. oh my god. i am going to try and write how this book makes me feel without repeatedly saying the words amazing and brilliant and awesome and other adjectives that generally mean the same thing. but in actuality this book is all those things and more.you can read the synopsis if you want to know what it is about, i don't feel like relaying it alllly is this quite yet strong girl who want to start a girl revolution that springs loads of punk girl bands who sing about being a girl and stupid boys. [...]

    12. A lovely quick read which I enjoyed. Guitar girl follows 17 year old Molly who, shortly after setting up a band with her friend, is discovered and catapulted into the limelight. The story follows her journey from ordinary teenager to music superstar and gives fan insight into all the highs and lows of being in such a position. Molly is a fab heroine of the piece. She's a real teenager complete with all the moodiness and the impulsiveness. I loved seeing how she had to cope with all the attention [...]

    13. Its been a pretty long time since I finished this book. And I still don't know what to say, I really don't know what happens behind the curtains and the glamour and the beautiful magazine covers and backstage in the fame world. But I guess this book pretty much answers it all for me. Its bittersweet, that little message Ruby x left for her really gets to me. You know? I'm not sure if leaving the band was the right choice for her but then, I respect her choices and I understand. It was hard for h [...]

    14. My English teacher had just shouted five more minutes to grab a book and head back to class. We were in my school library. This was a worn book, haven't been checked out in years and on the bottom shelf. I just grabbed it and checked it out. Turns out, I loved it!!! It was really good and tells you the prices you have to pay to become famous. I liked it! If you like rock star biography, music, in that genera. This is for you.

    15. this felt like a light but cautionary tale for mid-teens that are moving on from magazines to small novels. It was light as far as people development because it was heavy on some darker themes - the rock star life. It shows just how quickly "best intentions" can horrible spiral out of control and be "worst nightmare"Molly is in the midst of the whirlwind of stardom and trying to figure out who the sheep are - when she should know they are all wolves.

    16. I love how she gets teen girls, right down to the moodiness, the flights of fancy, the shaping of the self. BUT I didn't like Dean in this at all, which makes the romance fail in my eyes, and it was difficult to understand Molly's attraction to him, and her consequent actions. The details about the hard slog towards stardom were interesting, if slight.

    17. This is one of those books that I tend to keep waffling back and forth on; it’ll sit on my shelf for a few months, and I’ll think “Oh, did I really like that book? Maybe I ought to read it again.” And then I read it and back on shelf it goes.Which isn’t to say that this is a bad book…yet it’s not one that’s terribly memorable. I will say this about Guitar Girl, while it’s a typical “teen girl experiences the darker side of fame” novel, the plot is a little more blunt than o [...]

    18. I think I was around twelve when I read this. I remember it being an enjoyable ride but frustrating that she wouldnt just trust her best friend basically. I dont think I could stand to re-read it now as the feminist I've become because the main boy and the manager would just give my eyerolling muscles too much of a workout. So there's my awkward bad memory review.

    19. So sad that this sat on my self as long as it did. A realistic take on making it big in the music industry. Choosing to burn out than fade away. Where everything isn't always wrapped up in a tight bow and everyone goes home happy. Loved it!

    20. One of the books that can influence us to read without a stop. This book is awesome I love everything about the book the beginning, the end, their love story, and the humorous side :)

    21. this is a book that despite having an epilogue, needs an epliogue to an epilogueso, it has musicoks about music have like 0.5 star since the beginning.

    23. Originally posted at West of Mars Rocks 'n Reads (rockread.westofmars)In my quest to become the world's most knowledgeable woman about this genre I call Rock and Roll fiction, I must say that while I've encountered similar plots before, the situation in Sarra Manning's Guitar Girl is a welcome, fresh one. It's told in flashback style, when it's all over but the infighting. This is always a difficult structure to pull off well, but Ms.Manning does. We are set up for angst and betrayal and a lawsu [...]

    24. Even though this isn't Sarra Manning's best book, ("Nobody's Girl" was better written, I think it's because Manning had been writing for longer at that stage), it's my favourite.The title of the book immediately caught my eye, seeing as at the time I was finding it hard to find a book that I was interested in. It's difficult when you're twelve. (this book is probably a thirteen and over, it does have its moments)Molly is my favourite out of Manning's characters. Maybe because she's stronger than [...]

    25. "Keep on rocking baby, keep on rocking"There are not many books that should make you cry- and when it happens, you have read a book you cannot forget. This book is Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning. This book is a heart-breaker. I loved this book so much. And it shook me to the core, and you will think about this book long after you’ve put it down.Meet Molly Montgomery. She is just a normal British school girl. She has two very normal friends: Tara, a silent no-nonsense girl, and Jane, the school [...]

    26. The novel Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning tells the story of Molly Montgomery, a seventeen-year-old (sorry…almost eighteen, not seventeen, as Golly Miss Molly consistently reminds us) girl from England who forms a band in her bedroom with the help of her best friends Tara and Jane. They are called the Hormones and get joined by Dean, an arrogant eighteen-year-old and his mysterious friend T. The Hormones become international phenomena quickly, going on world tours and having their singles top the [...]

    27. This book was about Molly. She starts a band with two of her best mates, and along the way they pick up two guys to join them. It becomes a hit real fast. But she learns that the music business isn't all it's cracked up to be, and the book becomes a kind of downward spire.This book was extremely creative. I'm not much for books-about-bands but this was reinvented my outlook for them. I really connected with Molly, with most everything she did. There were never any parts where I was like 'OH MY G [...]

    28. Guitar Girl is the story of Molly, a girl who is inspired by rock queen Ruby X. Molly's intrigued by the idea of girl power and what it means for a rock band, so she grabs her two best friends and starts a band.It happened not because of the desire to become famous or for loads of cash.Molly started the band to just have some fun and become interesting.For this fact alone I love Molly's storyThen comes Dean and T they want the fortune and fame and help shape The Hormones become a legit rocking b [...]

    29. Scratch the cheesy as hell blurb and you do have a teen novel which is worth a look. Since this is the second time I've read it I'm tempted to say it really is one of my favorite teen books to date.Molly isn't the best, most developed character and Dean is almost half created but I love that about this book. It's not pretentious and telling you that this girl is perfect and yeah she makes a ton of mistakes and gets drunk and sleeps with the wrong people. She's a teenager, that's what we do. At l [...]

    30. L'histoire d'une adolescente pour de très jeunes adolescentes. L'histoire de Molly tient en quelques lignes, elle monte un groupe avec des copines et deux inconnus, part en tournée aux Etats-Unis et se rend très vite compte que la célébrité et le monde du showbiz, c'est la galère. Ajoutez à cela les premiers émois amoureux de la demoiselle et l'histoire est bouclée. J'imagine qu'à 13-14 ans, on peut se contenter de ce récit et encore. Molly raconte l'histoire de Molly et c'est tout. [...]
