Adios to my old life

Ferrer, Caridad.

New York : MTV Books : Pocket Books, 2006.

viii, 246 p. ; 18 cm.

Seventeen-year-old Ali Montero's life has been a whirlwind lately. But it wasn't always like this. As a talented Latina singer and guitar player, she was always asked to perform, but the steady stream of family parties and holiday get togethers had become tiresome. She wanted to be famous. She longed to make it big. Oh, this was bigger, all right. After all, Oye Mi Canto was billed as the Search for the Next Latin Superstar and here she was, poised to win everything. But she'd never expected to actually make it this far. Auditioning had been just a trial, and a way of getting her overprotective father to see just how much performing meant to her. But she'd wowed the crowds and judges and now she was caught up in the frenzied and unfamiliar world of wardrobe fittings, media interviews, and online fan blogs - just who are these lovestruck teens? And to make matters worse, she's forced to deal with professional jealousy, pettiness, and sabotage and finds herself wondering if performing - and all that goes with it - is really all worth it.
