{{REVIEW POST}} DIARY OF A ROCKER'S KID by Haley Despard


Madison Daley’s father has concealed the truth from her for seventeen years… 
 
Raised on a Kentucky farm, Madison is stunned when a conversational slip reveals her father Michael is a famous ’90s rock star known as the Grim Weeper. Michael left the spotlight and his mansion behind when Madison was dropped off on his doorstep by a woman in a black mask. A dark past is revealed, and the only thing Madison isn’t allowed to know is her mother’s name. 
 
The answers Madison needs can only be found in Beverly Hills… 
 
Though she does hope to persuade her dad to return to the stage, Madison’s real mission is to discover the identity of her mother.  
 
But she is slightly distracted—literally—by the boy next door. Giovanni Abate’s father is an action film star, his stepdad is a major designer, and Gio has his own claim to fame. Madison catches the handsome, young Italian actor’s eye, and their mutual attraction makes for a hotter summer than she ever could have imagined. 
 
Madison hasn’t set foot in California since infancy, but a lot of people are certain she has… 
 
After Madison has a makeover, people are sure they’ve seen her somewhere before, and she is extremely curious about the identity of her supposed doppelganger. As she looks into this strange situation, she’s unaware that Gio is hiding a potentially devastating secret. 
 
Could finding the answers she seeks change Madison’s life forever? 
 
Or will it just lead to more questions to fill the…

isn’t who you truly are…”

WOW...This was a great debut novel that will have you hooked from beginning to end. There was drama, laughs, love and hurt all the way through this book and I couldnt put it down. I felt sorry for everything that Madison had missed out on but I was also full of hope for everything Madison could gain.

Madison Daley has led a pretty secluded life, its not been terrible just different. She has a passion for playing her guitar and knows this is the answer to her future. With her best friend being out of town and her Nana requesting her to start her diary blog now is as good a time as any.

With days all rolling into one and never anything different happening she is excited when her dads best friend Cass comes to stay. Spending time with her dad and Cass is a great way to spend her days...that is until Cass makes a comment that gives her dad no option but to come clean and tell the truth.

The TRUTH...is her dad is a famous Rocker and Cass was also a member of his Rock Group. 

With her world being spun upside down...She has so many questions but her father is reluctant to answer them all. He wants to protect her but will this be his downfall.

Madison has a plan but the only way for this to work is for her father to agree to come out of hiding and take her with him. With them finally returning to Michael's real home Madison meets Giovanni, but it soon come to light that everyone thinks she is someone else but no one will tell her who.

When Madison will stop at nothing to find out everything she has to be prepared for everything that is thrown at her.


Is this 17 year old girl strong enough to take what is thrown at her?
Will Michael reveal everything?
Who does Madison remind everyone of?
 
Dont get your hopes up that all yours and Madisons questions will be answered at once since there is a massive cliffhanger that will leave you all screaming!!
