Read Becoming Betty Online Free - Lizzie Brown's life is one big to-do list:
1. Start college
2. Become cool
3. Decide wtf to do with her life
So when she meets Viv, the crazy, beautiful lead singer in a band, she thinks she's on her way to achieving number two on her list. And when Viv asks her to be the bass player in the band, there's only one problem - Lizzie can't play a single note. And that she's nowhere near cool enough (ok, two problems). And that she has a huge crush on the guitarist (ok, three), who happens to be Viv's boyfriend (ok, this is a terrible idea).
But Viv won't take no for an answer, and decides that a makeover is the answer to everything. Boring Lizzie Brown is going to become Betty Brown the Bass Player and there's nothing Lizzie can do about it...

Completely agree with Bee's review, which you can find it here!

Apart from the fact that Lizzie wouldn't be able to drop out of school at 16 to pursue a music career (because in the UK you need to stay in education until 18 years old), 'Becoming Betty' was fun.
I didn't really mesh with the writing since sometimes the conversations would feel too expositional...

5 Words: Music, friendship, family, change, growing-up.
Yep, she's done it again.
This is exactly the book I wish I'd had when I was sixteen. At times when I was reading I forgot I was reading about Lizzie and thought I was reading about myself. As much as I saw myself in the main character, it was...

I’ve got to admit that until picking up this book ‘girlbandlit’ wasn’t really something that had crossed my path before. I can’t remember a book I’ve read that could compare to Becoming Betty and I thought it was a marvellous introduction to the world of band lit.
Becoming Betty truly embraces tha...

Eleanor Wood follows up her awesome debut My Secret Rockstar Boyfriend with another incredibly fun contemporary filled with amazing characters (including an appearance, in a small role, from Tuesday, star of her first book.) I adored Betty, the lead here, and this is a really warm and funny read...

I really struggled at the start of this book with the whole "good girl turns bad to impress the cool girl in school" trope, so I had to power on and I'm glad I did. This book is about finding your tribe, finding your passions and going with them. ❤

This book is the first young adult (YA) that I have read in a long time. I had just finished Mansfield Park and Anna Karenina—both heavy reads—and I thought that this would be a nice, light, and easy read.
The story follows Elizabeth Brown, a nerdy 16-year-old who is about to enter sixth form. Sh...

I LOVED the music and band theme. I loved Lizzie, and seeing how she develops through the course of the story.
The detail was great - lots of little things that I related to, and the story tackled topics that are not mentioned enough in YA...

Equal parts hilarious and heart-warming, Becoming Betty tells the story of Lizzie Brown as she begins college and meets Viv, who convinces her to become the bass player in her new band so that they can enter a Battle of the Bands contest, despite Lizzie`s protests that she`s never played a note i...
