Book Review: Just a Girl – Ellie Cahill ***

Like many New Adult books this one begins with a break up. Presley is kicked out of the band that she co-founded because the other members are jealous that all the media and record company attention is on her. When one of these band members is also her boyfriend of three years she finds herself high and dry and looking for somewhere to lick her wounds.

After a period of teenage sulking in her room at home in Wisconsin Presley is forced back out into the real world and to work in her ageing hippy parents music store.
It isn’t long before one of the guitar teachers who works out of the store manages to catch her eye and despite herself Presley finds herself making new friends and new music.

It is a sweet unchallenging story that is a very quick read. Perfect for passing a day in the sunshine this summer.

I love sharing my favourite books with friends - nearly always spoiler-free as I hate reading a synopsis of the whole book in other reviews.
