Book Review : Girl on Tour by Caisey Quinn
Caisey Quinn has done it again! Girl with Guitar
won my heart with its country music setting and strong characters and Girl on Tour deepened my connection even further.
My Recap :
As you might have guessed this book is about Kylie’s tour. Kylie is on the cusp of making it big and her tour and separation from Trace are going to test her career and relationship to the last.
My Thoughts :
When I read the first chapter, I was nervous that this book was going to be high on steam and low on plotline. However, I need not have worried as that was far from the case. There were lots of interesting new characters and as the whole vibe is so fun and snarky, I had no problems with the pace of the book.
Kylie is spirited, impulsive and feisty and her tongue is as uncensored as ever which often made me chuckle away to myself. You can see her growth in this book, she is learning fast how to survive in a tough, competitive environment but she never loses sight of just who she is and what is important to her. She is fiercely loyal and will always say what needs to be said to protect those she loves.
The setting on the tour bus with the other two female singers was hilarious. It was messy, bitchy and shambolic at times. As was her relationship with the other two girls. Great fun to watch! And it lends a light-hearted tone to the book. What I loved even more was watching the unlikely friendships spring up where you would expect only back-stabbing and rivalry.
The best part though was her relationship with Trace. It was hard to watch but I totally agree with what happened in Girl on Tour. It needed to happen, it was the only mature direction and it gives me a lot of hope for both characters for the future. Roll on book 3, I can’t wait to see how this story wraps up.
Who should read this book?
Fans of contemporary NA books, of strong female characters, of country and western music settings would all enjoy this one. Be warned the language is strong and graphic so avoid if that is something that annoys you.
Thanks to Caisey Quinn for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
