Meet Jay, Summer and Dylan.

Jay plays guitar, writes songs and dreams of being a rock star. But his ambitions are stifled by seven siblings and a terrible drummer.

Summer works hard at school, looks after her nan and has a one-in-a-million singing voice. But can her talent triumph over her nerves?

Dylan is happiest lying on his bunk smoking, but his school rugby coach has other ideas, and Dylan reluctantly joins a band to avoid crunching tackles and icy mud. They're about to enter the biggest battle of their lives. And there's everything to play for.

A spectacular start to the new series from Robert Muchamore, bestselling author of CHERUB.


An exciting new series for teens from the hugely successful Robert Muchamore.

The story follows four different groups of teenagers who are finding their way in the world, growing up in different parts of England. The groups all have varying degrees of interest in being rock bands.

Then they discover a new and interesting reality TV show is coming - and the bands on the show will be battling it out to win a fantastic prize.

This is the first title in what will be another great series by Robert. It is best suited to middle and upper secondary students, as it is edgy and quite raw at times.

This book was included in our March 2014 Secondary Standing Order selection.
