  1. I waited to read this book until California Schemin was released and I m so glad I did Life in a Nowhere Town ends in a cliffhanger this is a series based on the same main character Conor Gillis, an 18 year old boy who s in his senior year in high school.Connor s life in nowhere town is lonely and miserable after losing his mother when he was only 14 years old, Conor has been struggling to keep her memory alive while his father took the easy way and pretended like his mother never existed Being [...]

  3. This was a great book There are a few word editing issues so if that is a thing for you then you might not want to read it I found the story line captivating and was so disappointed when it just ended Urrrg Conner and Derek s lives are bleak but interesting and Derek s character is intense Most of the secondary characters are fairly well fleshed out as well I must have missed the part where it said this was a cliffhanger I hope book 2 comes out soon.


  4. This story is about Connor Gillis, a senior in a high school who dreams of leaving his bumfuck nowhere town and having a career in music He isn t a popular kid at school and his only friends are Megan and Ali Of course, there s the local bully, Derek, who has it out for everyone, really, but especially Connor The story flow is a little choppy There are different parts that make up the puzzle but the transition isn t very smooth There s Connor s audition to the Singing Sensation competition, his [...]


  5. I RECEIVED A FREE COPY FROM THE PUBLISHER IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEWI m not the biggest YA fan but I ll admit this book was nice Also fiery crotch made me snicker a few timesOT The plot wasn t complicated, it was rather simple a small town boy auditions for a singing competition, fully assured that he isn t going to get a call back much less win, while dealing with that, he has to deal with this thing going on with Derek the school bully.I m not complaining about the sex scene, but to be h [...]


  6. A Joyfully Jay review 4.25 starsLife in a Nowhere Town is not the first book I have read in which the main character is involved in a national singing competition on TV This is not surprising as the popularity of these shows is increasing, no matter which country you live in The aspect I like about Hanna Dare s story is that the Singing Sensation auditions are secondary to the development of her protagonists Life in a Nowhere Town is about who Connor and Derek are and the reasons why they seek c [...]


  7. I thought it was a purely written fan fiction with barely disguised parodies of the characters in the TV show Shameless.


  8. So well written These people are real high school seniors, with all the awkwardness of that year in small town Midwest America Conor is a fantastic lead character, and all the rest are just as complex, even the bully s minions Can t wait to see what happens in the next book

  10. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review It is difficult for me to figure out how to review this book I enjoyed it BUT, and this is a huge BUT it s a short book with a cliffhanger This annoys me in principle I was enjoying what was going on, wondering why I was almost finishing and he still was in his hometown I like the story I want to know what happens But I can t figure why this isn t a complete novel, instead of these chapters My cynical side says that you will get a l [...]

  12. A free copy of this book was provided by the author in return for an honest review via the Don t Buy My Love program Life in a Nowhere Town was a perfectly paced story told solely from the third person POV of Connor He s the oldest child of his small family, just him, his sister and his father Connor s mother has past away, and she was the one who instilled a love of music in Connor When the reality show Singing Sensation comes to town, Connor suddenly sees an opportunity He wrangles his favorit [...]

  15. I was given this book as an ARC for a fair and honest review This was a sort of sweet but disjointed book for me about Connor a small town boy who dreams of getting out from where he is and living a life that is his own There are things standing in his way though A disinterested father who checked out after the loss of his wife, a bully and his cronies who make his everyday life pretty miserable and no real opportunities to escape except maybe Singing Sensation which might just give him the chan [...]

  17. This is a book that not only has massive amounts of humor in it but it has some bullying, and some parts that made me tear up also.Connor, I think, is really scared about not getting out of his small town along with the small mindedness He wants bigger things for his life but I think he is wanting to be able to help his family with the financial burden and he also wants to sing and play to remember his mother.Derek is the complete opposite of Connor He is the person at school people are afraid o [...]


  18. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Life in a Nowhere Town Sing Out 1 is a great beginning to Conor finding himself in ways than one I will tell you this story is not complete and appears to be one of a few so if that frustrates you, then you should wait until the full story has been written The story started a little slow but picked up steam later There were moments I laughed out loud, had my heart hurt and yummed with some sexy bits Since so much thought was p [...]


  19. I really loved this story about Connor who lives in a small town and dreams about seeing the world or at least getting out of town for once When an American Idol like reality show holds auditions in the neighborhood this might just be his chance, even if he never watched singing sensation in the past and always made fun about his sister who is a big fan But not only the show could change Connors life, he also gets to know Derek who is the school bully and until now only talked to Connor to make [...]


  20. I received a copy of this book through Book Funnel This was the second book I ve read by Hanna Dare and so far my favorite Ms Dare has the ability to look inside a young man s mind and heart so we can grow and change along with him The cast of characters are multidimensional and, as in real life, we uncover their motivation and deeper feelings over time.Conor just wants to get out of town Away From the bullies From the lack of musical stimulation From the small mindedness of people From the sadn [...]


  21. I received a copy of this book for reviewingConnor deals with so much loss that I actually felt it for him Derek is a total mess complete trouble and yet I m rooting for him I love that Connor is just an average guy with great inner strength even if he doesn t know it yet Can t wait to see what happens in the sequel



  22. 4.5 stars I am pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this I teared up a number of times for the loss that Conor lived through and for his hopes and dreams.
