Retta Lee Jones is blessed with a beautiful voice and has big dreams of leaving her tiny Tennessee hometown. With a beaten down car, a pocketful of hard-earned waitressing money, and stars in her eyes, Retta sets out to make it big in Nashville. But the road to success isn't a smooth one in a town filled with dreamers, and Retta begins to have doubts: can she make her mark while staying true to herslf?

From the breakout author of Artichoke's Heart, this bighearted novel is a must-read for anyone who has ever chased a dream (or hummed along with Taylor Swift).

I found this book to be very brilliant, but the ending pretty much left me hanging. I feel like the author could've written about 20 or 30 more pages of story. I just finished this book, but I want to know what happens next. I hope there's a sequel, because there's more story to tell.

The one thing you walk away from this book is just how hard and gritty it is trying to break into the music business, especially in Nashville. This book follows Retta Lee Jones and her dreams of being the next big thing in music. Along the way we see how things take a roller coaster ride of highs and lows and Retta grows and changed from being naieve about things to confident and taking risks. The one character I really liked was Ricky Dean. He was a good friend and helped Retta so much, its hard not to get sad when he passes in the book. This is a great book also because it shows Retta as really struggling and showing that not everything is handed to people, you have to struggle and work for the dream.
