I wouldnt recommend buying it. Not worth it. Its about a girl who wants to be a star like her dad but just as her band rises, it falls apart in weird ways. Good read if you are bored and have NOTHING else to read.

tempo Change, in retrospect, did not have a lot going on - at least, anything major that sticks out in my mind as I type this review. It was basically about a girl who starts a band and hopes that this will entice her father to come back into her life. Nothing too deep or mind-boggling, but I still found it rather charming. A nice story to fill in that small gap of free time right before I completely zonk out from exhaustion. I suppose, after reading about loud-mouth, rebellious girls, Blanche seems a little quiet in her rebel ways. Let's face it, the girl on the cover doesn't seem very "rebel" material either - more "nice girl" aura. Not a lot of time was spent on the other characters, save one, but even then it was but a blink of an eye. Which sometimes works in books if the main character has quite the presence, but I think it might have made the story more interesting if the other characters had more page time. Like I said earlier, tempo Change is like a love child from this lullaby and I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone, but the main character does not have as much spunk and the story is not as compelling.

"There was so much to say......Now I had someone to say it to." Blanche Kelly knows good music. She knows music because of her father, Duncan Kelly. He was a musical genius, in his prime. But most of the people at Laurel Hall Academy (fondly referred to as LaHa by its students) don't know this detail of her life. She tries to keep his influence hidden, but it's always there - the guitar he left with her mother; the music column that she writes for the school newspaper; the snippets of lyrics that Blanche begins to pen. It all culminates with the creation of The Fringers, an all-female rock band, sprung from the mind of Blanche Kelly herself. Blanche does not necessarily want to start a band, but her over-bearing guidance counselor feels that it would be best if Blanche "stretch" herself artistically. So, The Fringers are born, and a journey begins. Blanche learns much about herself as a musician, as a daughter, and as a person. Her journey is surreal, yet surprising and profound. TEMPO CHANGE is an excellent novel. It reminded me a lot of the film Almost Famous. William Miller and Blanche Kelly are very similar characters. Both are thrust into the music industry and must find their way without losing any integrity. Even if you are not familiar with Almost Famous, the book still resonates. If you are passionate about something, anything, read this.
