Description

Everyone in Phoebe Ferris's life tells a different version of the truth. Her mother, Meg, ex-rock star and professional question evader, shares only the end of the story—the post-fame calm that Phoebe's always known. Her sister Luna, indie rock darling of Brooklyn, preaches a stormy truth of her own making, selectively ignoring the facts she doesn't like. And her father, Kieran, the co-founder of Meg's beloved band, hasn't said anything at all since he stopped calling three years ago. But Phoebe, a budding poet in search of an identity to call her own, is tired of half-truths and vague explanations. When she visits Luna in New York, she's determined to find out how she fits in to this family of storytellers, and maybe even to continue her own tale—the one with the musician boy she's been secretly writing for months. This soul-searching, authentic debut weaves together Phoebe's story with scenes from the romance between Meg and Kieran that started it all—leaving behind a heartfelt reflection on family, fame, and finding your own way.

Professional reviews

"Narrators Amanda Dolan and Erin Spencer complement each other perfectly in this coming-of-age novel. The story is told from the alternating points of view of ex-rock goddess Meg Farris and her sweet 16-year-old daughter, Phoebe. As Phoebe visits her older sister in New York in search of her famous family's untold history, Meg remembers her transition from a carefree badass to a protective new mother dealing with the pressures of fame. Like actual family members, the two narrators sound similar but not identical. Spencer's air of wonder as daughter Phoebe contrasts with Dolan's portrayal of Meg, who is jaded but softened by motherly love. Older sister Luna sounds like the creative soul she is; her languid speech at times spikes with unbridled passion. The dual narration further brightens a descriptive story.
