REVIEWS

Praise for The Girl Who Became a Beatle

“As in his debut novel, Killer Pizza, Taylor has hold of an undeniably clever concept.”Publishers Weekly

“Regina’s relationship with her father–particularly as it is threatened by the appearance of her estranged mother–and her discovery of other famous bands that were living through “replacements” provide some depth to the narrative.” School Library Journal

Easy appeal to fans of music-fueled novels.” –Booklist
