Becky and Pete have been friends all their lives, almost as long as they’ve been a pop-punk duo. They moved from their small Northern hometown to London in hopes to ‘make it’—yet almost a decade on, they’ve got little to show for their efforts. Pursuing their dream has taken its toll on both of them, and they’re desperately in need of a break.
Enter The Hacks—an American bubblegum-pop trio that has been around for nearly fifteen years. Brothers Todd, Tyler, and Tristan were barely out of the diapers when their first album became a worldwide sensation. Their chart-topping success is long gone, but they’ve managed to stay relevant and keep a loyal fanbase.
In an unexpected turn of events, Becky and Pete are hired to be the opening act in The Hacks’ UK tour. Even though they don’t fit in the same genre and the out-of-the-blue proposition raises a few suspicions, the duo sees it as an opportunity. Maybe they’ll get the visibility and the contacts they need to get a record deal. Maybe this is the chance they’ve been waiting for.
But expectations might not meet the reality of the music business, especially when the lines between personal and professional life start to blur. Ghosts from the past, surprises in the present, and dreams for the future will align to shift their perspectives irreversibly. Are Becky and Pete up for the challenge?

Meet the Author
... is a Brazilian writer and translator. She currently lives in São Paulo, but her mind wanders everywhere.
She's graduated in translation and interpretation and has been working in this area for years. She loves translation, as it is nothing more than reinterpreting stories, but her greatest passion is telling stories of her own.
Luana has been writing and creating stories for as long as she can remember. Her first creative work was a series of comics on a thief that wore a beanie and always ended up in jail. She was seven years old.
As a teenager, she started writing poems and even music - the quality of which was very questionable. She discovered fanfiction and ventured in that a little bit, until she found out how to create her own characters.
She is now taking up this new path of publishing. Her first book, Welcome to New York, is due later this year, and she has already started writing more.
Actually, she never stops.
Each month I will make a blog post for each book that we are running. If you would like to share your thoughts on each one feel free to comment! Or message me (Crystal Gray) and I can add it to the post. Happy Reading!
