Desert McGraw is the daughter of a rock star, and that makes life difficult for her, since "friends" always want to meet her dad and score back stage passes to his concerts. So when the band decides to relocate to Florida and Desert starts at a new school, she is desperate to keep her dad's identity a secret in order to forge some semblance of a normal life. Things start off okay; Desert makes friends with Becca pretty quickly and Liam Blanco seems to be returning her interest, but pretty soon, the whole school knows who she is, and Desert is pretty miserable.
A fun book about taking a fresh look at life, it has some romance mixed with friendship, mixed with family troubles, so most teens will find something to connect to.
