Lucky Stars.

Lucky Stars.
By: Lucy Frank.
This book has 295 pages.
I really enjoyed this book because first of all it was about music, and there were 3 main characters that shared their point of view.
This book is full of life with the descriptions because these 3 kids have a amazing talent to sing but they have stage fright, and would never want to be on any kind of stage.
I recommend this book to teenagers.
I did have a slow beginning but later on it became funnier.
I give this a 4 out of 5!

Summary:
