YOZORA  
Dec. 10, 2013
Author:  Diann Saku
Category:  Children's: Young Adult
Description:  Sixteen-year-old Alisa Hailey hates sushi, thinks anime is boring, and doesn't know any Japanese besides "sayonara." When her family moves from Minnesota to Tokyo and she learns there isn't a drama program or choir at her new school, it seems like her life—along with her dreams of musical theater stardom—are over. So when Alisa's karaoke skills impress an amateur rock band, of course she accepts the invitation to become its vocalist. Now Alisa has a new dream: helping the band win a recording contract at a competition sponsored by a record label.

Alisa clashes with Kei Fujishiro, a high school dropout who thinks he's the only singer the band needs. Unable to decide if she wants to fight with Kei or kiss him, Alisa ends up doing both. But their chemistry has to remain strictly musical; Alisa is set on leaving Japan the second she graduates, and Kei is focused on the band's success to the exclusion of everything else.

The band has a real shot at winning, but when Alisa's grades begin to suffer, her parents forbid her from being a member. With the chance of winning a recording contract on the line, will she be able to keep her parents from finding out that she is disobeying their wishes until the competition, or will her dreams of rock stardom be crushed before they even begin?
