'This Beats Perfect is a fabulous celebration of music, friendship, and following your dreams' Katherine Webber, author of Wing Jones

Amelie Ayres has impeccable taste in music. Bowie. Bush. Bob. So when she finds herself backstage at The Keep's only UK gig she expects to hate it; after all they are the world's most tragic band. In fact she feels a grudging respect - not (obviously) for their music, but for the work that goes in to making them megastars. And when lead singer, 'Maxx', is not dressed up as a cross between Elvis and a My Little Pony, he is actually rather normal, talented and has creative struggles not too dissimilar to her own.

But the next morning she wakes up and rolls over to discover a million new @'s on social media. Overnight, a photo of her at the gig has made her a subject of global speculation. Suddenly the world needs to know #Who'sThatGirl? - but for all the wrong reasons.

All Amelie wants is to play her music. She's got the guitar, the songs, the soul and, in the safety of her bedroom, she's got the voice. But when it comes to getting up on stage, she struggles with self-doubt.

Immaculate's a concept. Flawless is fake. But just sometimes music - and hearts - can rock a perfect beat.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Tapping into boyband mania as well as artistic pride, Denton turns her sharp eye to the fallacies of painting women as 'groupies', creating a main character more interested in artistic integrity than fame and fortune. Young women looking for more positive female role models will love Amelie's passionate pursuit of her dreams, which is both inspiring and hugely relatable. * Evening Standard *
THIS BEATS PERFECT is a fabulous celebration of music, friendship, and following your dreams. It's hugely entertaining with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and Amelie is a wonderful heroine. She's smart, loyal, and fiercely independent. Rebecca Denton's music expertise shows in the incredibly authentic backstage and on stage scenes. A fantastic addition to the burgeoning category of YA books about music, fandoms, and fame. * Katherine Webber, author of Wing Jones *
A fun, I'm-NOT-with-the-band, tale * Red magazine *
