**Update Feb 2011: C-Side tales is now being called Amplified, and will be having a new cover coming soon**
This week's pick is Tara Kelly's C-Side Tales, coming this fall from Henry Holt and Co.
Summary: When privileged 17-year-old Jasmine gets kicked out of her house, she takes what is left of her savings and flees to Santa Cruz to pursue her dream of becoming a musician. Jasmine finds the ideal room in an oceanfront house, but needs to convince the three guys living there that she's the perfect roommate and lead guitarist for their industrial rock band, C-Side. Too bad she has major stage fright, and the cute bassist doesn't think a spoiled girl from over the hill can hack it.
My Thoughts: This one seems like a really great riches to rags kind of story with music and boys thrown in. The fact that it centers around wanting to join the band and her love of music just adds something great overall to this one. I think this is going to be a great mix of emotional and funny, and a pretty darn awesome coming of age, the music edition. I also love this cover. The background is gorgeous, but it gets much of the book premise across very well.
