Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved it! Molly lives the life of a typical girl. She loves her friends and loves to have fun. She loves playing gigs with her band, and then, her dream comes true! her band is offered the once-in-a- lifetime chance to become famous!

Read this if you haven't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible. I must say "Guitar Girl" is one of my favourite teen novels. Miss Manning makes you really feel for the main character Molly. A surprising read that will show you that it's not all that predictable.
