Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

" This book is, quite simply, an awesome feat of the imagination. not only has Taylor Jenkins Reid invented the (fictional) biggest rock band of the '70s, but she's imagined the entirety of their career and fashioned their story as an oral history, so that each member's voice comes through loud and clear. And if that's not enough? Sexy/druggy scandals galore, emotional revelations that will make you cry, and hell, even song lyrics. You're going to love this. "  - Recommended by Erika

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock ’n’ roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.
