Reveiw: Song About a Girl

Title: Songs About a Girl (Songs About a Girl #1)
Author: Chris Russell 

Charlie Bloom never wanted to be 'with the band'. She's happiest out of the spotlight, behind her camera, unseen and unnoticed. But when she's asked to take backstage photos for hot new boy band Fire&Lights, she can't pass up the chance. 

Catapulted into a world of paparazzi and backstage bickering, Charlie soon becomes caught between gorgeous but damaged frontman, Gabriel West, and his boy-next-door bandmate Olly Samson. Then, as the boys' rivalry threatens to tear the band apart, Charlie stumbles upon a mind-blowing secret, hidden in the lyrics of their songs...

I picked this book up and the libray based on the cover. Look at that cover it is so pretty!!!I decided to read it because i'm a sucker for nice covers and any book that includes a band/rock-stars.

This was a YA contemporary story about a girl and a boy band.Charlie was an okay character, and she did come across as fairly normal.Charlie is an amateur photographer, taking photos for fun. Her recent shots of a gig garner the attention of Olly, an old school acquaintance, who wants her to come and take backstage photographs of his band Fire & Lights.Charlie lives with her Dad who isn't always there one hundred percent of the time., Charlie gets bullied bullied a lot at school and does what she can to avoid it all. As her job with the band progresses, a photo is leaked of her with them, and the bullying escalates to a level that I thought was pretty awful.I like the fact that Song About A Girl really hit on online bullying and the fact that it is a huge issue.

The romance wasn't a huge thing however,I would have perhaps appreciated that if then the characters hadn’t gone and declared their love for each other, a month after meeting. My main problem with this book is the cheesy romance lines that a certain character feeds Charlie. This charterers feelings for Charlie  felt like instalove or maybe obsession is a better word for it.

As I mentioned that cover is quite pretty.I love It!! It was such a quick read and in a lot of ways predictable. However i'm curious to see what come next in the sequel Songs About Us (Songs About a Girl #2)2/5
