Sixteen-year-old Amy Peppercorn has a lot to scream about. She's struggling with her A-Levels and coping with her two-year-old sisters while her parents tear each other apart. Her best friend is being lured away from her.

Then Amy falls under the spell of cool, elusive Ben and joins his his band. Winning his approval means careering through the streets in a stolen car, skipping school, and staying out late. Amy could be in trouble. But she leaves the band behind. She's not like the others. She's going to be a pop sensation. At the end of a stunning novel that packs a huge emotional punch, she is on the brink of stardom - but knows there will be a terrible price to pay.
