The Vinyl Princess
By Yvonne Prinz
HarperTeen, 2010. 313 pgs. Young Adult Fiction
Allie is the Vinyl Princess, a 16-year-old dedicated to the LP and real music, not the tinny kind that you download. Allie works at Bob and Bob’s, an independent music store, and secretly publishes her blog and fanzine at night. This book details one summer as she works and meets two very different boys and begins her foray into the blogging world.
Although I didn’t recognize half of the bands and songs Allie talks about, I appreciated Allie’s passion and her desire to educate the masses. Her tale, while not extraordinary, was a fun read for the weekend.
