Synopsis: Lisa Franklin's troubles seem to melt away when she sings. Since joining a high school band, she feels like a new person: strong and self-confident. Not like the person who has felt miserable since her mother died four years ago. But Lisa's brother, Mark, isn't so happy about her singing with the band--it's his band, his friends.
As the summer progresses, Lisa is thrilled with the band's success and all the attention she's getting. But while the other band members can't deny that Lisa is improving their sound, they're not sure it's what they want. The dilemma is even greater since no one knows how to tell Lisa.

From School Library Journal: Grade 7-10?Since her mother's death, 16-year-old Lisa lives isolated in the midst of her family. Neither her older brother, Mark, nor her father communicate; her mother's departure has left them without the social "glue" to stick together. Mark finds direction in Crawl Space, a band. Smooth, charismatic Danny, the group leader, enlists insecure Lisa as singer. As life improves for her, things get worse between the siblings. Even so, their constant efforts together as band members lead them to see one another and themselves more honestly. When Lisa is jettisoned?both by Danny, who has ignited a manipulative romance with her, and by the band?she confronts reality head-on and finds strength in her very real talent. There are no promises made of easy resolutions, but the ambiguity is satisfying. Lisa is convincingly drawn, though the father is a weak point. Exhibiting all the symptoms of involvement in a love affair he denies, he belatedly tries to mend fences. A more serious weakness, however, lies in the development of the three boys in the band, for readers don't know where they've been or where they are going. The book is easily told in Lisa's voice, with chapters interspersed in Mark's. Thematically similar to Cynthia Voigt's Orfe (Atheneum, 1992), but for a younger readership, this title deals with the pressures of rock-and-roll, glamour and relationships that aren't what they seem. It's a fast-paced read that will keep kids turning pages and leave them with something to think about as well.?Carolyn Noah, Central Mass. Regional Library System, Worcester, MA
