*Silent Scream!*Whoa! If you want to start reading a amazing novel, Girl Out Loud is the book for you!
Kass Kennedy is nobody's idol. She does forget the lyrics. She's not a gleek. The x factor? Not her! Read her lips: She has the right to remain silent.
Just try telling that to her dad.
Because he's totally lost it this time, demanding Kass audition for a TV talent show. Which would be slightly less than death-by-embarrassment if Kass could (duh!) actually sing. And if even the smallest part of her craved the spotlight. Stardom is her dad's dream, not hers. But he's so fragile, she's afraid he just might crack if she doesn't go through with his latest, craziest plan.
Not helping: Her hopelessly MIA mom. The budding criminal mastermind also known as her kid brother. And amateur shrink Izzy and used-to-be-sweet Char, who've gone all frenemies over a boy in brown boots. (Don't ask.)
It's only rock n' roll? If only! Inside, Kass is screaming, but no one is listening. How loud does a girl have to shout to be heard?
The characters: Kassidy or Kass as she is usually called, is a fun girl. She is about 15 or 16 but thinks that she's 24. She was very mature and handled a lot of tough situations really good. She was always there if her friends needed her but in this book they get into a few little fights and that kind of breaks up their terrific trio. I felt that sometimes she could be kind of childish and I wanted to slap her and tell her to get her head in the game.
The plot and writing style: We follow Kass Kennedy. Your average every day girl. Except, her dad is kinda messed up. He wants her to be the star and do everything that he can't and that is really hard on Kass. One day, well everything changes when her dad says that he wants her to audition for the X Factor and that this would be really really good. The writing style was so awesome and fast paced and omg!
Overall, well I don't think I need to say anymore. I know I say 'Go get this book now!' a lot. Ok maybe more than a lot but this is definitely one to go check out or pre-order or whatever it is that you guys do.
