Rock Star by Adrian Chamberlain is about a teenage boy struggling in school and at home. He is attempting to find meaning in his life. Duncan turns from a bass guitar player in his school's orchestra to a rock star by joining a heavy metal band. In his transition to fame, Duncan becomes too preoccupied with his stardom and begins to lose his friends ans his father's respect. With the help of his father's girlfriend, Duncan is able o find balance and discover there is more to becoming a guitar hero than just playing in a band. This 114 page novel exposes the challenges and heartache of adolescence. I would recommend this book for young adults ages 13-16.
