Title: Out of Tune
Author: Michelle D. Argyle
Date of Publication: December 3rd, 2013
“Out of Tune” is about Maggie, a 20 years old girl who’s parents are the two most popular country music stars of the moment. Just like her parents, her dream is to someday be able to live of our music, but there is only one problem in the picture: she can’t sing. As she discovers that her parents are getting divorced, Maggie decides that it is the right moment for her to start living on her own as well as take signing lessons to start her career and become more independent.
This is the first book that I read from this author and I will definitely check out her other books because I have to say that I really loved it. Which surprised me because I didn’t think I’d do as much.
Even though the story doesn’t have much action, you still don’t get tired of reading it because of Maggie. She is such a strong and courageous person and you just want her to get to achieve her dream and become happy again. She is so determined to get her voice fixed and she keeps on trying and working hard even though everything seems to be falling apart around her. She grew up so much throughout this book, I’m so proud of the young woman she became and I wished I had her as a friend. When you talk about character development, that is it!
Finally, it is a wonderful book that made me definitely put me into a “country music” mood and I recommend it to everyone who thinks might like it. :)
