Seventeen-year-old Lacey Kind doesn’t have the guts to talk to cute boys, isn’t a size two, and would rather stay home and listen to music than go to a party. But in the summer before her first year of college, she ends up thousands of miles away from home, in the back of a tour bus, underneath the half-naked body of the hottest teen rock star in the country.
When Lacey and her best friend Trina sneak into a Boston nightclub to see their favorite band, they not only get to watch their rock gods perform for the first time, but score a chance to meet the band too. Lacey’s heart races as she comes face-to-face with her idol, nineteen-year-old lead singer, Logan Shire.
The girls charm their way into being hired to sell merchandise on Lansdowne’s first summer tour. As “merch girls” Lacey and Trina quickly find themselves transported from their ordinary, suburban life to an exhilarating few months on the road. But they soon realize that life on the road isn’t always a smooth ride…


Seeing Logan up there, with the lights shining over his head and his hands caressing the microphone stand ever so slightly made me want him even more. I imagined myself in the place of his mic stand, with his hands sliding down the sides of my body. I’m sure that the rest of the audience was envisioning the same thing. Each time he combed his fingers through his hair, a few strands would fall down over his eyes, making him look even sexier. He ran around the stage and played to the crowd. The girls screamed and swooned over his every move. I could see the beads of sweat glisten from his neck; his tight t-shirt clung to his body like it was glued on. It just wasn’t normal for someone to look so incredibly good while perspiring!

Rebecca Lewis is the author of the Young Adult novel, Merch Girl, and a lover of all things music!

Her passion for music and writing brought her to Boston University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science from the College of Communication. During her college career, she interned for various record labels in Boston and New York City, sold merch for local bands, worked at record stores, and did a whole lot of grassroots marketing. She currently resides in Florida with her husband and puppy.
