Unable to overcome the whole paralyzing-stage-fright thing, Victoria settles for living inside her fantasies, where nothing can go wrong and everything is set to her expertly crafted music playlists.
But after a chance encounter with an unattainably gorgeous boy named Strand, whose band seeks a lead singer, Victoria is tempted to turn her fevered daydreams into reality. To do that, she must confront her insecurities and break away from the treadmill that is her life. Suddenly, Victoria is faced with the choice of staying on the path she’s always known and straying off-course to find love, adventure, and danger.

Yes, yessss Janelle Milanes yes!!
I specifically sought out a YA book that would have a latinx main character. I wasn’t expecting much, if we’re being totally honest, but I am so glad I went in with low expectations because oh my god it was amazing and it blew me out of the water.

I typically don't read books where the main character is 15 or younger, but at a certain point, I was hooked. Despite Victoria making some bad calls and despite the love interest appe...
