She wanted to be a songwriter. She didn't know she'd be a detective by the end of the summer.

Acclaimed songwriter Cynthia Weil's YA novel debut starts with young J. J. Green's dream of becoming a songwriter. It's 1963, and the last thing her lawyer parents want is for her to end up in the cutthroat, shady music business. They agree to a summer job when J. J. promises she'll give up music if she doesn't sell a song by the end of the summer. But J. J. gets more than she bargained for when she ends up in the middle of a mystery. This book is about the music industry, the '60's, race relations and pursuing your dreams, and solves a mystery to boot! A unique contribution to the current teen book scene.
