Sing Like No One's ListeningAges 12+
Sing Like No One's Listening by Vanessa Jones is a novel about dreaming a dream, finding your voice, and not throwing away your shot!
Nettie Delaney hasn't been able to sing a note since her mum died. This wouldn't be a problem if she wasn't now attending Dukes, the most prestigious performing arts college in the country, with her superstar mother's shadow hanging over her. Nettie has her work cut out for her and everyone is watching.
But one night, in an empty studio after college, Nettie finds herself suddenly singing, as someone behind the curtain accompanies her on the piano. Maybe all is not lost for Nettie. Maybe she can find her voice again and survive her first year at Dukes. But can she do it before she gets thrown out?
I loved this book, for its freshness, fun and unique voice.
