Daisy Jones is young, wild and naturally talented.
The Six have worked steadily to get the success that is heading their way.
By chance, Daisy and The Six’s frontman, Billy, end up singing a hit song together and their respective managers decide that touring together is the best option for both.
What follows is rock-and-roll magic, except when it’s not.
Written as the transcript of a documentary film, the author’s newest book contains all of the usual plot points for a story about up-and-coming rock stars. Drugs, sex and partying. Riding the high of becoming famous. The dark places fame can take a group of people so closely intertwined. (And be warned, the probability that you will sob for two entire chapters is high.)
But the author so deftly writes about these characters that you forget the entire thing’s fiction. I often went to Google people and places only to remember this was entirely made up. I really wish that I could hear the songs of Daisy Jones & The Six. They must have been amazing!
A Taylor Jenkins Reid book is now an absolute must-read book for me going forward. You should probably try this book to find out why.
