A young girl's story of finding fame but not without having endured some heartache. A great short story with real emotion,hope and some lyrical poetry.

I enjoyed reading this. It's not the usual thing I'd go for but it was recommended to me so I thought I'd give it a go. It's the story of a young woman trying to make a success of her life as a singer-songwriter while trying to forget her traumatic past. It's quite a short book and it would have been interesting if it was longer as I found the lead character easy to relate to and would have liked to know more about her as she intrigued me.

It took me ages to get through this because I was trying to fit it in between revision, so having the flow of writing broken up might colour my review. Overall, this isn't a bad little read and definitely worth a look if you want something cheerful.

There are odd words and phrases that should reallly have been struck out in the edit but more established authorsoften do this too so it is nothing to worry about. also, some of the characters seem to speak in styles that don't feel organic to them, occasionally the dialogue feels info-dump-y and forced. If the story had been longer and given more room for character development that was earned, it would have been good but sometimes it's nice not to have think too much about a book.

I probably would have like to see Li earn er success more han just handed it. this isn't a wholey badthing becausethings do happen like that at times.

I'd say give this book a go and its only 37pages if you don't like it. it's echnically well written - just lacking emotional depth for me.

This is the second book I have read from Ms. Fulton, the other being Soldier Evolution Revolutionary Girl. It was clear to me from the outset of the story, that this author is very talented and has grown tremendously as a writer since the last book. She demonstrates a much stronger command of the language without sacrificing her unique voice. One thing that endears me to the author's style is her ability to draw a reader into her world using subtle references to pop culture. She's also quite adept at using description without being overbearing. It's a cozy style that is as welcoming as it is charming.

After being initially reluctant to read Idol Siren due to the teenie-bop cover, I was please to find that there is a story with a heart here. The tale of a young woman trying to find her place in the world after suffering a horrible tragedy was both refreshing and inspiring. With all the gritty stories out there, it's always great to read an uplifting story.

It's easy to relate to the Alicia's struggles and her desire to make her mark in the world on her own terms. She's a universal character that will appeal to anyone who ever found it difficult for themselves to fit in.

One thing that caught my notice were the beautiful lyrics of the original songs featured in this book. I was swept up in the evocative language which captured the essence of Alicia's persona. Two books in and I am already a fan of this author . The future looks very bright for Ms. Fulton and her works of fiction.

I recommend this story to anyone who loves an uplifting reading or is looking for a tale that would inspire them to reach their own heights.

3.9 stars.
