Shrinking Violet- Danielle Joseph

My rating: 5/5
Summary: from amazon

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....


First, Shrinking Violet was Completely amazing, great, stupendous, and other adjectives I can't think of right now. The point is that I could not put this one down. It was a great twist of a Cinderella story only our Cinderella this time is a extremely quite and awkward girl by day and an amazing DJ at night. With the typical popular and distant step sisters and a step mother who tries way too hard to make the family perfect, Both are not shy about using all of her fathers money.

I loved seeing Tere or Sweet T slowly start to talk to Gavin and other people, not to mention the whole Amazing DJ part. Probably one of my favorite parts is when Tere's step mom takes her out to get a make over and seeing a hint jealousy they are done.

The characters were of course done very well. Tere was great coming out of her shell and all, then Gavin being the wonderful guy he is, then my favorite character "Pop tart" being sweet to Tere from the beginning even though she is quite flighty thinking that Tere is actually Deaf when she clearly can talk. But she was a great character to see helping Tere with the mystery of Make up and being her coach and supporter the whole time.

Overall, it was very good and expect everyone to go buy it when it comes out!
