The X Factor? Not her! The seriously ridiculous saga of a reluctant rock chick.

Kass Kennedy is in major trouble. Her manic dad has truly lost it this time. He's signed her up as a contestant on The X Factor. Which would be slightly less of a total trainwreck-happening-in-slow-motion if:

a) she couldhello?!sing;

b) even the smallest part of her actually wanted to be a star;

c) she hadn't just gone all frenemies with her two former besties over a boy in brown boots. (I know. Don't ask.)

How is Kass going to get out of making a complete fool of herself on national TVnever mind an infinite afterlife on YouTubewith her sanity, and her family, still intact?

Raves & reviews:

"Kass's humorous, self-deprecating tone and the touching moments make this an enjoyable read." School Library Journal
