After graduating high school, Olivia “Ollie” McKenna leaves her small town roots in Summerville, Georgia, to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer. With her best friend and older sister in tow, wholesome Ollie travels to the big city to compete in singing contest Atlanta Idol. There she meets nineteen-year-old Jack Bradley, a fellow country singer who quickly becomes a close friend. The connection between them is magnetic and an opportunity to sing together could change their lives forever. But what about Ollie’s mama’s fear of the music business? She’s been burned by the lures of the bright lights before and doesn’t want Ollie anywhere near that world. And Ollie’s growing feelings for Jack as more than just a pal could ruin everything. Despite her own doubts, Ollie is determined to win. Can she make her dream come true or will she return to her hometown empty-handed and brokenhearted?
I found this book really enjoyable.
Ollie is a sweet and brave girl. She knows what she wants in life and she fights to get it, even though not everyone approves.
Jack is a sexy country singer. At times I didn’t like him very much but deep down he has a good heart.
I’ve always enjoyed X factor and The voice so I really enjoyed the Atlanta Idol competition. I was really tense throughout the whole competition.
I thought Ollie and Jack’s friend’s were really supportive even thought they knew they would miss them if they hit the big time.
I think I would have enjoyed seeing more of them in Nashville. I also thought the book ended rather abruptly. I would really like a second book to see what happens next.
