Summary: Still in high school, Marisol Reyes gets the chance of a lifetime to be a real singer, and she leaps at it. After all, this is the dream she held on to, all the days and nights she spent growing up on means streets of East Harlem. Marisol never gave in--no matter what her boyfriend or her best friend had to say. Who cares if only one in a hundred pretty, talented girls make it? She will be the one. In her rush to fame, Marisol tramples on the heart of her loyal best friend, and Julian, the boy she loves. But will it be worth it?

One night at a private gig in the Hamptons, the little Latino girl with the big voice from East Harlem gets a severe reality check. A famous rapper who claims to be interested in her talents turns out to be interested in something else, threatening not only Marisol's dreams but her body and soul. Will the realities of the gritty New York music scene put out the stars in Marisol's eyes forever?

Review: I LOVE THIS BOOK!  I LOVE THIS BOOK! OMG! Amazingness. Pure and simple. I can just imagine her beautiful voice. I always kind of envisioned it like the women in Halestorm or the women in In This Moment. It's a crazy beautiful voice. I love all the characters, the events are crazy but realistic. The author has created a truly amazing tale. I would give her other books a shot. Wonder if there are other books or what to come of her writing career. Must read book.
