Genres: Romance, Young Adult
Use cash and keep moving.
After I ran away from home, these were the two rules that dictated my life. Scoring a job as a roadie fit perfectly for what I needed. Traveling, cash, and life out of the spotlight. But when my path collides with West, the lead singer of Bus Stop, I can’t seem to stay out of his spotlight—especially since we’ll be touring together for an entire year.
West is determined to break down my walls. He won’t give up. And little by little they come crumbling. But if he knew what lurked behind them, he wouldn’t be so eager to get rid of them.
The more time we spend together, the more the lines of our friendship become blurred. He makes me dream of things I never thought possible. But while our friendship has been evolving into a romance, my secrets have been closing in. And just when I’ve decided to reveal my past to West, I’m confronted by it. The cost of my freedom could ruin the life of the guy I love…

Shadow of a Girl follows the story of a sixteen year old girl Eve who runs away from her abusive household in a bid to discover freedom. She changes her appearance and travels across the US to look for work and covering up the secrets of her past so that they don’t spoil her life whilst she is living on the road with roadies. Her world changes when she meets West, a hot and attractive frontman of the band Bus Stop. Both of them have secrets they’re keeping but one wrong move could spoil any chance of happiness for them both.
I like that the romance was well-developed and not an insta-love plot. I would say that the novel is suitable for teens but there are some scenes of abuse throughout the book that may be uncomfortable. As a lover of books that involve Romance and music together, reading this was just up my street. I enjoyed it immensely and will be reading more books by the author.
That is it for today’s post, thanks again to Xpresso Book Tours and to Shannon for the opportunity to take part in the tour. Don’t forget to stop by all of the other participating blogs!
