The follow-up to Jill Murray’s acclaimed Break on Through, Rhythm and Blues is a thoughtful and glittery young adult novel about a teenage girl’s quest—for fame, love and self-identity.
Many of the things in Alya’s life have been unexpected: She never anticipated receiving a full scholarship to the private school she attends; she never thought she would end up as a member of Hydra Force, the hottest breakdance crew around, or that she would be “discovered” and asked to be part of a cool new girl group called EnChantay . . . But that’s what happens to her, and overnight, Alya’s life completely changes. She moves to Montreal and begins voice lessons, practicing choreography with her bandmates, and shooting a video for EnChantay’s first single. Yet, of all the unexpected things in her life, Alya is most surprised when she finds herself questioning the person she is, and feeling things that she never imagined feeling . . . all for one of her friends.
