The Girl Who Became A Beatle by Greg Taylor

Here's a bite for the book's goodreads page: She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah!

When Regina Bloomsbury’s band, the Caverns, breaks up, she thinks it’s all over. And then she makes a wish—

“I wish I could be as famous as the Beatles.”

The Beatles are her music idols. The next day, she gets up to find that the Caverns are not just as famous as the Beatles, they have replaced them in history! Regina is living like a rock star, and loving it. There are talk shows, music videos, and live concerts with thousands of screaming fans. And Regina is the star of it all.

But fame is getting the better of Regina, and she has a decision to make. Does she want to replace the Beatles forever?

Here is a rocking novel about the good and the bad of Hollywood, fame, and rock ’n roll.

My Take

I love the Beatles!  I mean I really do LOVE the Beatles!  This book gave me pause to think about what if they had never existed.  Heavy thoughts.  I could imagine there music just hitting the scene now.  I think it would have changed the shape of music over the years, without a doubt.

This book was good.  I found the premise interesting.  I liked Regina as a character.  She came off as real.  I can see her struggles and the whole seduction with fame. 

I had to stop and think about what I would do in that situation.  I like to think I would have done the same, but I can see where quite a few teens wouldn't.  I think it's a nice little read and I liked the love story that went along with it too.  I'm giving this one 4 magical mystery kisses!

  1. Great premise! I don't understand why people want the craziness that goes along with that kind of fame - would send me into hiding!!!


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
