I believe the book Beige by Cecil Castelucci is a great read. At first the book was slow but once the characters were fully introduced I couldn't put it down. The author created realistic characters that girls my age could relate to. A relationship that i thought the author developed well was between Katy and her father("The Rat") It showed her feelings of hurt,disgust,abandonment and a little resentment. Throughout the story the relationship grew realistically and they bonded. I would recomend this book to any girl fourteen and up who likes to read about a rockstar scene.

When Katy is shipped off to Los Angeles to live with her father for the summer, she is less than pleased. Why couldn't she stay in Canada, or go with her sensible mother on her trip? After all, her father is Beau Ratner, the aging punk rocker known by his fans as "The Rat."

Katy is not a punk rock kind of girl. She's not even a music kind of girl. Katy's a good girl. Even if that means keeping it all inside. Even if that means hating everything to do with music--everything that, all those years ago, made her mother run off, do drugs, sleep with "The Rat," and get pregnant with Katy.

BEIGE is a fantastic novel, and Cecil Castellucci is a very talented writer. Her characters are wonderfully real and fresh. Her story is absorbing enough to be read all in one sitting (so start this one on an empty Saturday!). BEIGE is an honest, real, intelligent, and very well-written book for music lovers and those of us who can't tell the difference between the great and the popular alike!

It's a good music story, sure, but, more than that, it's a wonderful and amazingly good life story. BEIGE is one of my top picks for 2007 so far, and I'm definitely moving Cecil Castellucci's other two teen novels (BOY PROOF and THE QUEEN OF COOL) up on my to-read list.

But overall, I'd have to say that this book was very good. Cecil Castellucci has done it again! I've only read two of her books, Beige, and Boy Proof, but I must say, they were well worth it!

wow awsome book didnt think i would like a book when the main character was so 'beige' but its great, i actually look at people who dont think music is such a big deal differently now 'even though music is a big deal=]'

i read this book in one day and i dont like to read so i would say its good .my dad picked it out for me .it looked kinda weird by the cover but that shows you dont judge a book by its cover right!! i skimmed threw the the book and saw songs i loved but artists i loved .so i though i would give it a chance and im glad i did. it made me wonder what was going to happen thats why i couldnt put it down i wanted to know how it ended and i was suprized!!
