Guitar Girl by Sarra Manning
Seventeen year old Molly Montgomery never planned on becoming famous. Molly’s band, The Hormones, was just supposed to be about mucking around with her best mates, Jane and Tara; writing songs about Hello Kitty; and being a girl. But when the group is joined by the deliciously dangerous Dean and his friend T, things onstage – and backstage – start happening, fast. Soon The Hormones are front page news, and their debut album is rocketing up the charts.
Molly is the force behind the band, but the hazards of fame, first love, screaming fans, and sleazy managers are forcing the newly-crowned teen queen of grrl angst clost to the edge. Fame never comes for free, and Molly’s about to find out what it costs.
My name is Ruby Morris. I don’t go out when it rains.
Once you’ve survived an apocalypse, the old rules don’t seem to matter so much.
Like today, I drove a Ferrari that wasn’t mine, but no one cared – (There was no one left to care.)
If I want to eat only Nutella, then I can – (There’s nothing else left to eat.)
And if I want to go to wild parties in mansions, I will – (This only happened once.)
Of course, there are bad things too. Like everyone you cared about being gone, having no one to trust, and worst of all, not being able to stop thinking about THAT KISS with Darius Spratt. But I’ve survived this long and I’m not going to die now.
Tired of their servitude to man, a group of farm animals revolt and establish their own society, only to be betrayed into worse servitude by their leaders, the pigs, whose slogan becomes: “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
