Shrinking Violet by Danielle Joseph

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 LOVE this book. I read it in one sitting, within the period of a few hours. It was completely addicting and I have nothing but praise for it. If you have not read this book, you seriously need to. Danielle Joseph wrote this book from a true audiophile’s perspective, which I loved. Gavin is just… wow… *insert gushy fan girl here*. After finishing this book, all I wanted to do was sit in my room and listen to music. It also made me want to have my own radio show.
Tere was one iconic character. I really wanted to be her. She was shy, like I am. But, she got over and eventually conquered the radio and all who listened… while still getting the guy!
I recommend this book to everyone and anyone who loves music, is human, or is in need of a genuine feel good book.
