Summary
Roxy May Redding's got music in her soul and songs in her blood. She lives in a hot dusty town and is dreaming big. She survives run-ins with the mean girls at high school, sings in her dad's band and babysits for her wayward aunt. But Roxy wants a new start. When she gets the chance to study music in the big city, she takes it. Roxy's new life, her new friends and her music collide in a way she could never have imagined. Being a poor student sucks...navigating her way through the pressure of a national music competition has knobs on it...singing for her dinner is soul destroying...but nothing prepares Roxy for her biggest challenge. Her crush on Ana, the local music journo, forces her to steer her way through a complex maze of emotions alien to this small town girl. Family and friends watch closely as Roxy takes a confronting journey to find out who the hell she is
Summary
In this novel written by a Nukunu Indigenous Australian author in which class, culture, and romance collide, Roxy accepts the offer to study music in the big city through a university pathways program for Indigenous Australian students. When she learns the program might be cancelled, she must fight to keep her dreams of studying music from slipping away. Meanwhile, she also begins to fall for local Māori music journalist Ana, who understands her passion for performing music and love for her family better than anyone she's ever known. -- Description by Lindsey Dunn
