Will the right decisions and choices, which are detrimental to the band and its future, be made through the haze of infatuation? Will Jake’s absences on the road lead to another filling his shoes? Jake and Alyssa’s lifelong friendships are strained and tested; secrets are kept, admitted and shared. Family bonds are broken, as others grow stronger. Who knew a first love could cause so many problems? Then again, in their eyes, there are no problems as long as they’re together. In the end, will his new found muse bring down everything he’s worked so hard to achieve or will she inspire positive creative change; that will carry him and his band to stardom.

 When I sat down to read Skid Out and turned on the amazing song that came with it, I was hooked as soon as the first notes came through my speakers and I read the first line of the book. I was stuck into my seat till I read the very last word and was begging for more of the story.

This wonderful prequel pulls you into the story and amerces you in the life of a freshmen and a senior in High School and a blossoming love story.  I can't wait to read the book as soon as it comes out.  I need more of the story As soon as it does.

The Characters, Jake and Alyssa are very well developed and I could relate to Alyssa  as I know a lot of you will be able to as well.  She one day opens her eyes and now she sees things she hasn't before in the male teenage population.

I need to know what happens with the two main characters.  I need to know how her family and her friends will react to the two of them and I need to know if they find out.

Do you remember falling in love for the first time or realizing you are "crushing" on someone for the first time ever.  Or have you ever fallen for someone that you grew up with and never really looked at like you that? Then you will defiantly relate to Alyssa!  Read this great prequel and relive those feelings of first love all over again. 

So, with all that being said... my ratings for this great novella are:

The Story rating:

Cover Rating: 

(I loved the look of the cover, the colors just jumped right off the page)

Now for the song...That's right I said some. If you get this marvelous story you will get a song with it. 
Transpose" by Bad Suns is great to listen to as you read the novella, or anytime really.  I totally rocked out to it lol.  But, fair warning once you start listening you wont stop, I know I didn't! 

Song Rating: 

So you all should check out "Skid Out" and let me know what you think.
