Retta Lee Jones can sing like a dream. All she wants to do is leave her small Tennessee hometown and head for the big lights of Nashville. She quickly learns that making it in Nashville will not be so easy. With the odds stacked against her and one setback after another will her ambition be enough?
I enjoyed Suzanne Supplee's easy-flow writing style and loved the interesting facts on different country stars that she began each chapter with. It was also fun to see how she incorporated a song title from each of those country stars to name each chapter.
It was nice to see a realistic portrayal of Retta's journey to achieving her dreams rather than the sugar-coated story lines so often written. I imagine that even with the setbacks that Retta faces that most singers would find it even harder to make it in Nashville. Still this is a quick delicious read with lots of fun facts for those country music lovers out there.
