So this story takes you from the start of fame of Adam and his band's first hit single called, Indigo Blues. About his now ex-girlfriend who lives back home in their home state. Indigo is irritated that her ex has written a song about her that makes her sound crude.
As it goes on she gets even more furious about the song and how local t.v. news shows want to interview. She wants just wants to escape as more people realize the song is about her.
Adam is trying to deal with all the fame and interviews and trying not to hurt Indigo anymore while is in NYC.
If I only had one question it would be where does this story go?
I hope see more of the story from this author given that the characters let her finish their story since the story seems so unfinished.
First of all, it was a lot like Audrey, Wait! I know that this probably is just coincidence, but it tainted the book for me. While reading, I was like, Audrey, Wait!, Audrey, Wait! There were so many things that were similar between the two.
However, Robin Benway pulled it off better than Danielle Joseph did. I didn't feel bad for Indigo. At some points, I was just like, "Is she REALLY going to whine like this the whole book?" I didn't feel like I could relate to Indigo at all, whereas I could relate to Audrey in Audrey, Wait!
That being said, there were parts of this book that were okay. I loved that you could read from Adam's point of view as well as Indigo's. It gave the book a cool perspective. Also, like Shrinking Violet, I had trouble putting the book down and I wanted to keep reading and keep reading until I was done.
Overall, it was an okay book, though it could've been better, especially if it didn't remind me of Audrey, Wait!
But I classify this as one of those YA novels which older women read as a guilty pleasure so they can pretend to be teenagers again but actual teenagers would find a bit embarrassing.
