This fast-paced novel is set during the American leg of a rock band's tour. Lola takes on the role of tour manager as a way of getting to know her newly discovered dad, rock legend Rick Wild. Nicely drawn characters and an intriguing storyline makes this a compelling read. Suspense, humour and romance. The perfect ingredients for any good book. Younger readers would really enjoy this.

Synopsis

This is Your Song, Lola Rose by Donna Hay

Lola Rose Lambert's life changes on the day of her father's funeral. She isn't sorry that Eddie Lambert is dead. The outside world might have seen him as a solid, genial family man, but to her he was a bully who made her mother's life a misery until the day she died. She and her father have barely spoken since then. And Lola finds out why when, after the funeral, an embittered relative reveals a dark family secret. It turns out Eddie Lambert wasn't Lola's father at all. She was the result of a backstage fling between her musician mother and Rick Wild, guitarist with the mega rock group Poleaxe. Not only is her father very much alive, but he's also a big-haired, leather-wearing rock god. Lola tries to handle the revelation in her usual practical way, although deep down she's excited by the idea of having a family somewhere out there, and a father who might love her in the way Eddie never did. But her expectations are dashed when she finally gets to meet her long-lost dad, and discovers he's a typical rock star - spoilt and self-indulgent with the maturity of a hyperactive five-year-old. And then there's his family, who turn out to be a bunch of people so dysfunctional they'd make the Borgias looks like the Waltons. The arrival of Lola in their midst could be the making of them - or the death of her!
