Peek Inside I'm Not In the Band

I like Kassidy Milton. She’s funny, beautiful and my favorite kind of weird. But I can’t tell if she’s into me or my famous twin brother. I am better-looking. But Kassidy isn’t good at letting people in. I can relate. Trust is a funny thing; it’s hard to gain but easy to lose.

I like Kassidy Milton. There, I said it. She’s funny, beautiful—even though she doesn’t know it—and my favorite kind of weird. But I can’t tell if she’s into me or just trying to get close to me for a chance with my famous twin brother instead. I mean, it has to be me. I am the better-looking one.

But Kassidy has some demons, and she’s not good at letting people in. That happens when you’ve been hurt by someone close to you. I can relate. Trust is a funny thing; it’s hard to gain but easy to lose. I might just learn that the hard way.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book includes a snarky heroine, a swoon-worthy hero, crazy best friends, your favorite music, and lots of feels.

I'm Not In The Band

Amber Garza

Received from Netgalley

Why have I never read Amber Garza before? I loved I'M NOT IN THE BAND so much that I read it in one sitting! That says a lot doesn't it? Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down and was so involved in all the characters lives. Kassidy Milton ...more

By Valerie June 11, 2017

I loved this book. It's the perfect blend of fun, sweet and sexy for a YA book. It's definitely worth the time it takes to devour it!

I love these characters. Kass has just gone through some type of crisis at her old private school and has moved to the public school. We don't learn too much about it ...more

When I started reading I'm Not in the Band by Amber Garza I thought this is just another teenage Rockstar novel. And actually that is just what this book is NOT. Because we are not reading about the famous Rockstar that meets a girl.
No .. we are reading the story of this brother and his struggle wit ...more

By Tales Of A Bookbug June 14, 2017

A very cute and sweet YA read!I usually don't read too many YA books these days, but this one's blurb caught my eye and my interest was piqued!And after recognizing the author's name I realized that I'd read a few books of hers.And her book Tripping Me Up was a favorite of mine when I'd read it a fe ...more

By Joli June 12, 2017

When a book starts out with the characters going to a concert, then it is my kind of book.
I love the cover and the title of I'M NOT WITH THE BAND. Both of those things attracted me to this book and played a huge part in my desire to read it.

Even though the book isn't about the guy in the boy band, ...more

By Deniz June 12, 2017

I'm Not in the Band is cute but not as fluffy as I initially expected.

This is my first book by Garza and I really like her writing style. The story is told from Kass and Archer's POV. While Kass's POV is told in the first narrative, Archer's is narrated through social media posts and messages. At f ...more

This is a really great sweet romance that is perfect for young teens who are looking for a light-hearted story of first love.

By Danielle's May 26, 2017

I'm not in the band is a sweet teen read. It is perfect for the age group it is aimed at (12-16).

Kassidy is wanting a fresh start and is moving to a new school. Just before she starts, she attends a music concert where she meets a cute boy. Lucky for her he offers to show her around her new school. ...more

By Christina August 05, 2017

Sweet, romantic mystery, and a page-turner to boot, this coming-of-age story was very well-told.

Kassidy is battling demons, so she changes school and starts to act "out of character". At a concert, she meets Archer Devlin, pop star Ross's twin brother. When she doesn't "recognise" him as his brother ...more

My Rating  - 3.5

I'm not in the band is a short, cute and breezy read.

What I Liked ?

The way the author described Archer - the lead male's insecurities because being a famous rock star's twin brother a lot of people be - friend him just to get to his brother.

The way she kept the mystery of Kassidy's p ...more

By Cami July 05, 2017

I loved the premise of this novel. I liked that the main character wasn't in the band himself, but had enough fame because of his twin brother and he was over it. A chance meeting between a girl who was not a fan of his brothers, but at the concert led to immediate sparks. These two characters had a ...more

I received a copy of this book via Net-Galley.

This is not your typical rock star book, actually its not a rock star book at all. Its about the brother of a rock star that is being used to get close to his brother, and he is dealing with that.

I loved this book, It was a quick read. I loved Kassidy ...more

By Jess August 17, 2017

I cannot begin to imagine the stress that would come with being a twin of a super star.  As the oldest of four, two of my siblings being boys, there were plenty of girls who were just friends with me to get close to my brothers. It is annoying and the source of a lot of my trust issues when it comes ...more
