Somebody Everybody Listens To, by Suzanne Supplee

Retta Lee Jones is a country star in the making, and everybody in her small town of Starling, Tennessee, knows it. All she has to do is get herself to Nashville and make her dreams come true. But it isn’t easy when she’s got no money, her parents’ marriage is falling apart, she hits mishap after mishap, and an unexpected critic makes her question whether her talent of mimicking the greats is really a talent at all. Filled with country flavor and fun facts about stars who hit it big, this is definitely a pick for seasoned fans, and great for younger YA readers.
