I'm Glad I Did; Cynthia Weil

I'm Glad I DidI'm Glad I Did by Cynthia Weil
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Real promise here, given the author's background, but ultimately turns into a standard-fare YA novel. There's some coming-of-age here, with JJ finding her voice and learning how to stand up to her family, and some interesting "behind the scenes" stuff about how the Brill Building worked back in the day. Had there been more of the music, less of the coincidence about who was whose parent and trying to right old wrongs, this would have been a far stronger book.
