I never worried much about being a good girl. I was pretty normal in that, from what I’ve learned talking to my coworkers. Having fun and living life was more important than people thinking we were perfect little angels. I mean, there’s all that about lying and how you shouldn’t do it, right? So why pretend to be a good girl?

That’s important in today’s Coveted book:

Amber Vaughn is a good girl. She sings solos at church, takes care of her baby nephew after school, and spends every Friday night hanging out at her best friend, Devon’s, house.

But when Amber learns about an audition at a prestigious arts school, she decides that her dream—to sing on bigger stages—could also be her ticket to a new life. Devon’s older brother, Will, helps Amber prepare for her one chance to try out. The more time Will and Amber spend together, the more complicated their relationship becomes . . . and Amber starts to wonder if she’s such a good girl after all.

Then, in an afternoon, the bottom drops out of her family’s world—and Amber is faced with an impossible choice between her promise as an artist and the people she loves. Amber always thought she knew what a good girl would do. But between “good” and “bad,” there’s a whole world of possibilities.

Maybe this is more morality tale than Rock Fiction. Only one way to find out, right?

But I like the idea behind this. It comes near the whole idea of selling your soul for rock and roll success, right? And it puts Amber at a crossroads, even if it’s not an actual one.

I’m curious how this gets pulled off, and how strong the Rock Fiction angle is. Bring it!
