When Maya's dad brings home a beat-up RV and declares the family is selling their house and "embarking on an adventure", she's less than thrilled. Especially since it means missing out on the chance to audition for a reality singing competition alongside the boy she's crushing on. Who could blame her for cooking up a million and one plots to get back home, despite the fact that life on the road isn't quite as bad as she expected (and full of unusual sights and people.) Super fun tween drama here [...]
Normally love this author's work, but since I don't have many singers in school, I think I'll pass. Living in a trailer is pretty quirky, but there have been families in our area who have done it for a while. I think my big objection was that I didn't like Maya very much. Either that, or I flashed back to my family's travel trailer that my parents threatened to live in for a while. Since my parents were both educators, it was a valid threat. I think they planned on subbing here and there. Luckil [...]
The idea of traveling around the country in an RV sounds amazing to most of us. Not to the lead character in Out of Tune, though. All Maya wants is to audition for a show called Dueling Duets with her secret crush, Jack. But her fixation on getting home almost makes her miss out on all of the great things about her new life, including a cute boy named Remy and a "frenemy" named Shiver. Gail does a fantastic job of conveying the angst a preteen feels when she's stuck with her family while missing [...]
This is a super good book! It's about a girl who has to live in a motor home because it's her parents dream. But she doesn't want to and she just wants to go home. She's missing a very important audition that could fulfill her dream, and get her her dream guy. So she tires to find away to get back, but soon she realizes she can find home right where she is, with her family.
Enjoyed the familiar setting.

This was an interesting read for a little older child. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I've given it a 4.5 * rating. It was full of adventures and finding out life doesn't always turn out like you want it to. This is pretty long for a child though. However, if a child really likes to read, it is pretty fast moving and there is something happening all the time.
