    pretty good story, dealing with serious issues

    I enjoy country music a lot and I’m a big fan of Faith Hill, Rascall Flatts, Lady Antebellum so when I saw this YA Contemporary story centered on country music, I was quite intrigued. I’ve read YA stories featuring rock stars but this is my first time reading a YA story centering on country music. Clay was your typical bad boy, dragging a painful past behind him, hell-bent on a path of self-destruction. One of his latest transgressions led him into meeting Annie, a seemingly good girl. Their paths collided and only time would tell whether they’d complement each other or destroy one another. Annie was the daughter of a famous singer and she grew up in the limelight. She got out and tried a different path but the lure of music was too hard to resist. When Clay came to convince her to come back and sing, she already wanted to and so started their tour together. They both had their pasts and issues to work through. This story emphasized the beauty of music, the art of it, how it affected people. But also showed the darker side of the music world—the stress and pressure, the depression and the temptation to take the easy way. I appreciated that the author showed the gritty side of the show business but there was a certain depth lacking in the words that would have given the story more impact. The writing style made the issues feel less dark instead of intensifying the impact. That said, “You’d Be Mine” was a pretty good story, dealing with serious issues that impact teens and musicians. Also, throughout the book, one part of my mind kept trying to work out the significance of the title before I finally got it.
