Life seems hard at some points, especially after graduating high school. But the book "Amplified" by Tara Kelly tells what really happens after high school in California.

 

In the book "Amplified," privileged 17-year-old Jasmine decides not to go to college. That results in her getting kicked out of the house. Jasmine tries to find a job and stuff that normally adults would. She decides to try out for the band, C-side. Will Jasmine make even though she has major stage fright?

 

I thought the book was just a little inappropriate for kids my age. It really talks about stuff we shouldn't do like smoke and other bad adult content. It also has a lot a cussing. Most of it is towards the end of the book.

 

This book starts out a little mysterious, but towards the middle, it got kind of boring. Sometimes you just wish the book told you the answer right away. Unfortunately, that doesn't happen in this book. Towards the end it gets a lot more exciting especially when Jasmine performs, on the bright side!! Tara Kelly is the author of another book called "Harmonic Feedback." She has ten guitars and lives happily with her kitten in Oregon.

 

This book would be great for kids in 5th grade and up due to some minor cussing. If kids who are in lower grades want read, they can just keep in mind that it is a young adult book.
