Rock This! Thursday

Rock This! Thursday features books that are about or mainly centered around one of our favorite obsessions: music!

Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph
(Released May 5th)

High school senior Teresa Adams is so painfully shy that she dreads speaking to anyone in the hallways or getting called on in class. But in the privacy of her bedroom with her iPod in hand, she rocks out -- doing mock broadcasts for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere surprises herself by blossoming behind the mike into confident, sexy Sweet T -- and to everyone's shock, she's a hit! Even Gavin, the only guy in school who she dares to talk to, raves about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest -- and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize -- Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare....

I've seen a few reviews on this one, and it's now going in my TBR pile. I absolutely love that cover, and being someone who use to be pretty shy in high school, and in some ways still am - I'm looking forward to reading it!
