Review: Rock and a Hard Place by Angie Stanton

One day while watching the Interstate exit for her dad's long awaited return, Libby's life is rocked when Peter Jamieson steps off his tour bus and into her life. After a couple chance meetings with Peter, Libby breaks away from her perfect behavior and her life changes course.

Peter longs for normalcy away from the screaming fans who know nothing about the real him. He is amazed to discover Libby has never heard of him or his band. Soon their friendship turns to love. While Peter battles his family's growing interference so he can spend time with Libby, she struggles with her eccentric aunt who turns more bizarre each day.

Their lives are torn apart when Peter's family intrudes and Libby disappears. Peter's desperate search for her comes up empty. Can they find their way back to each other while the world plots against them?

Libby's life used to be really good. She had a loving family and was popular at school. A horrible accident changed everything and now she's living with her evil aunt who's the village idiot. At school they don't like her at all and she doesn't have any friends. When one day she meets Peter Jamieson she has no idea who he is. For the famous rock star Peter this is wonderful. He and his brothers are in a band and everywhere they go there are fans and girls who only like them because of their fame. Libby likes Peter because of who he is.

Libby's giving Peter a bit of normalcy in all the craziness that comes with the band. He tries to spend as much time with her as he can. Only when his family finds out something goes horribly wrong. That is also the day Libby's life changes drastically again. Now Peter can't find her and Libby misses him dearly. She has to survive and Peter does everything he can to find her. Will he succeed or will they never see each other again?

Rock and a Hard Place is such a great story. I loved it from the beginning. Libby is a sweet girl, but life hasn't been kind to her. Angie Stanton writes about the things that can happen to every teenager in a realistic way. Life can be tough, but there's always hope. Libby is strong and she doesn't mope and feel like a victim, instead she's doing everything she can to make something of her life. I loved her character and spirit. 

Peter is a sweet guy who happens to be famous. He never has any privacy and he's always working. There's no chance he can do anything a normal teenager does. He loves being on stage and I liked reading about the tours and the music. Peter and Libby are wonderful together, so I kept hoping things would be all right for them. I couldn't wait to read the ending. I read this book in one sitting and liked it very much.
