For the Record
Author: Charlotte Huang
Genre: YA Contemporary
Release Date: November 10, 2015
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers


If Almost Famous were a YA novel... a raw, honest debut celebrating music, friendship, romance, and life on the road.

Chelsea thought she knew what being a rock star was like... until she became one. After losing a TV talent show, she slid back into small-town anonymity. But one phone call changed everything

Now she’s the lead singer of the band Melbourne, performing in sold-out clubs every night and living on a bus with three gorgeous and talented guys. The bummer is that the band barely tolerates her. And when teen heartthrob Lucas Rivers take an interest in her, Chelsea is suddenly famous, bringing Melbourne to the next level—not that they’re happy about that. Her feelings for Beckett, Melbourne’s bassist, are making life even more complicated.

Chelsea only has the summer tour to make the band—and their fans—love her. If she doesn’t, she’ll be back in Michigan for senior year, dying a slow death. The paparazzi, the haters, the grueling schedule... Chelsea believed she could handle it. But what if she can’t?
Even though there are some clues in FOR THE RECORD as to what kind of band I envision Melbourne being, I hope I’ve left enough to the imagination that readers will be able to picture their own version of Melbourne. But here are some songs that I would put on the book’s soundtrack. Enjoy!
