From the New York Times bestselling author of 99 Days and How to Love comes a stunning new contemporary novel—all about boy bands, girl bands, best friends, and first love—perfect for fans of Sarah Dessen and Morgan Matson.

It was always meant to be Olivia. She’s the talented one, the one who’s been training to be a star her whole life. Her best friend, Dana, is the levelheaded one, always on the sidelines, cheering Olivia on.

But everything changes when Dana tags along with Olivia to Orlando for the weekend, where superproducer Guy Monroe is holding auditions for a new singing group, and Dana is discovered too. Dana, who’s never sung more than Olivia’s backup. Dana, who wasn’t even looking for fame. Next thing she knows, she and Olivia are training to be pop stars, and Dana is falling for Alex, the earnest, endlessly talented boy who’s destined to be the next big thing.

It should be a dream come true, but as the days of grueling practice and constant competition take their toll, things between Olivia and Dana start to shift . . . and there’s only room at the top for one girl. For Olivia, it’s her chance at her dream. For Dana, it’s a chance to escape a future that seems to be closing in on her. And for these lifelong best friends, it’s the adventure of a lifetime—if they can make it through.

Set in evocative 1990s Orlando, Fireworks brings to life the complexity of friendship, the excitement of first love, and the feeling of being on the verge of greatness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! This was an amazing book. I've only read one of her other stories (How to Love) and immediately fell in love so I absolutely had to read this one after all the amazing reviews. It's fantastic. The story hooked me immediately, the characters were real and the writing was oh so amazing. Highly recommend as a cute summer read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fireworks I really enjoyed this novel, and I tore through it SO quickly. A little predictable, but still a great read. I liked that it was featured in the 90's and the focus was a "making the band" kind of thing! I really love Cotugno's other novels so I HAD to get this one and I definitely don't regret it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun I feel like this is more of a 3.5 stars for me. It was definitely fun and I thought the way the story progressed was fairly realistic. It was cliche and predictable at times, but it was definitely fun. I enjoyed the drama that came up throughout the story, and the relationship between the two main characters was pretty well done. If you're looking for a fun, easy read, this'll be a good one. Especially if you grew up in the 90's and liked pop bands! ha.
