Strong characters, complex relationships, and believable dialogue combine to create an unforgettable story of loss and redemption.
Pamela Jean (a.k.a. Star) is sixteen when her mother dies of breast cancer. Star is angry that her mother has died and left her, and nothing seems to make her feel better: Not talking to her shrink. Not playing rock music with her best friend Dooley. Not even listening to her mother's old familiar Beatles albums.
It is not until Star finds an unsent letter addressed to John Lennon and a broken-down vintage Gibson guitar that she begins to find a way out of her grief…and maybe even a way to take care of some unfinished business left by her mother.
Written with compassion, Mark Delaney's new novel offers a realistic and poignant look at a difficult period in a teenager's life.

It was so cute!!! Mark Delany takes a cliche plot and turns it into something fresh and original. I love the use of John Lennon as aa motivating force in the book and the use of flash backs were well placed and managed to add depth to the plot. Read full review
