Overview

At the age of 15, Taylor Beauforte has only met her father twice in person. After all, he is the lead singer of a world-famous rock band, constantly on the cover of music magazines and giving interviews on MTV. He pays for Taylor to attend the Treadwell Academy, a prestigious boarding school in Massachusetts, and provides her mother with monthly checks to cover her basic needs, but has never made much of an effort to play an active part in Taylor’s life. Taylor's mom Dawn is the only family she has ever really known, and because of Dawn's hard-partying Hollywood lifestyle, studious Taylor is happiest on the other side of the country in Massachusetts with her nose buried in a book.
When Taylor 's mom unexpectedly dies the summer before Taylor starts her junior year, she receives a crash course in fame. She has no choice but to join her father and his new family on their summer concert tour before she has even had a chance to mourn the loss of her mother. Life as the daughter of a rock star seems like it would be enviable, but Taylor can't figure her dad out. He seems like a supportive authority figure (even if he's kind of a fashion tragedy) , but she is collecting a growing pile of evidence that he's a liar and a cheat. Her stepmother, Jill, can’t seem to decide if she wants to treat Taylor like a girlfriend or a nuisance. Having had no time to grieve and say goodbye to her childhood before being thrust into the limelight, Taylor is suddenly finding herself in situations she could have never imagined before this summer.
With no one else to turn to, Taylor falls head over heels in love with Jake, the teenage son of one of the band's touring groupies. Taylor has growing concerns about Jake's background and the suspicious relationship between his mom and her own father, but is desperate for something real in her life onto which she can build a future. When Jake offers Taylor an opportunity to join him on a whirlwind adventure and leave her problems with her father far behind, Taylor has to decide – should she carve out her own way in the world, or try to repair the relationship she has with her only living parent?
Over the course of the summer with the band, Taylor learns the depths of her own strength, the difficulty of overcoming loss, and that the definition of family means much more than shared bloodlines.

    Hi

    The story line was good, but she is drinking, making out with a guy multiple times, is pressured to have sex, and girls take off their bikini tops in front of collage boys. And she's 15. It was really disturbing. I didn't like it at all.

    REALLY A GREAT BOOK

    I was so impressed with this book, I read it in 2 days, and when I finished the first thing I did was go on line to see how many more of her books I could find to read. I was disappointed there were no other books written by her. I will keep her on my list of authors to read when her next book comes out.

    Couldn't put down

    I couldn't put this book. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. And when I reached the end I wished there was more to read. I have read a lot of books in my lifetime and this is in my top 10 favorite. Just so enjoyable to read and actually picture this story happening.

    Great story

    I finished this in two days, I couldnt put it down. It was a heartfelt story of a teen going through a rough time but overcoming it and coming out a better person. I love stories with a purpose and a point like this, it was touching to read and I felt connected to the character. Not iust a good read for teens but for young adults as well. Will be waiting to see more from this author.

    TAP HERE! ;)

    The Rockstar's Daughter is a memorible book. The story line is kind of common. Not exactly the same but multiple books have a character experiencing the negative side of fame. Other than that this is great. At times the characters don't seem fully developed. Also I found that many parts were tedious and hard to get past. This is not the best book I have ever read, but I will recommend it for someone who wants alight summer read. The writing is a little above average and the style is plain. There are other books in the series, but tbe NOOK doesn't have them yet. So conclusivly, The Rockstars Daughter is a book that is not life changing, or inspirig, or extraordinary. It is funny, sweet, and quirky. I will deffinantly remember it.

    II have been wanting to read this book for a while now and I was

    II have been wanting to read this book for a while now and I was not disappointed. During the course of the story I got to know Taylor well and as she was making the most important decision near the end of the story I was urging her not to do it. It gave great insight into the life of being a rock star and that it cannot be as glamorous or exciting as it always seems to be.
