Street Song

Reviewed by Melanie on May 1, 2017


When I began Street Song I honestly rolled my eyes at Ryan’s character. Former star who lost it all, too many parties and too many drugs. A wash out. An addict. I personally prefer “stars” who don’t get addicted to everything, but it helped get the story going.

When Ryan met Toni, I rolled my eyes as well. Oh yay, a love story! That being said, I love that Toni was a no nonsense kind of girl. She had the self confidence that most girls her age lack. It made her a really enjoyable character.

As Ryan begins his journey in Belfast, I was quickly pulled into the story and kept telling myself “One more chapter and I’ll go to bed.” I finished the book instead.

While parts of the story are a bit slow, wanting to know what Ryan’s next step would be kept me turning pages. It’s a great story about hitting rock bottom to find your true self, and then working to keep that person. I do recommend the book if you want a quick, but interesting read with a little love story and a lot of talk about music.

Description from GoodReads.

Ryan’s career is over. After winning a TV talent show and becoming a teen sensation, his fame has spiralled into addiction, embarrassing headlines and career suicide. Now his image-obsessed stepdad wants him at home, back in school and under his thumb.

However, a chance meeting with the enigmatic Toni offers him a fresh start in a new city. Before long he has reinvented himself, made real friends and is playing real music in Toni’s band. Despite living in a hostel, busking for his wages and living under a false identity, Ryan is finally happy.

But struggling to exist on the brink of homelessness, he is exposed to a more sinister world. Forced to truly decide what kind of person he wants to be, Ryan begins to realise that starting over comes at a price.
