    This is a truly inspirational story, and I have no problem giving it five stars!The year is 1982, and a young girl wants to play in a rock band. I've never played a musical instrument before (unless you count six months of guitar lessons in Primary School, which I sucked at), but I know two people who play guitar, and I recognise many of the brand names and terminology from their anecdotes. And of course, I love music--who doesn't??--so I was delighted at some of the song references.I was completely engrossed in this young Japanese girl's journey from auditioning for a local band, to starting her own band, to tasting fame, to finding out where she ends up (which I won't share with you). The Author's Note at the end gave me goosebumps, as I made the final realisation that this is not just a story about a young girl's musical aspirations, but rather a story for any artist involved in creating anything (and that includes writers), and a declaration that we don't have to wait to be considered "good enough" by music labels, publishers, etc.One of the best, and most well written, indie stories I've read in awhile. I'll be looking for more by this author!

    Lots of fun. Resonant Blue made me want to dust off some of my old punk stuff again. Highly recommended!
