Sorta Like a Rock Star
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Amber Appleton lives in a bus. Ever since her mom's boyfriend kicked them out, Amber, her mom, and her totally loyal dog, Bobby Big Boy (aka Thrice B) have been camped out in the back of Hello Yellow (the school bus her mom drives). Still, Amber, the self-proclaimed princess of hope and girl of unyielding optimism, refuses to sweat the bad stuff. But when a fatal tragedy threatens Amber's optimism--and her way of life, can Amber continue to be the rock star of hope?
With an oddball cast of characters, and a heartwarming, inspiring story, this novel unveils a beautifully beaten-up world of laughs, loyalty, and hard-earned hope. The world is Amber's stage, and Amber is, well...she's sorta like a rock star. True? True.

Very Optimistic in sometimes a very cruel world
The book does an excellent job of explaining the ups and downs life has to offer. The characters are very easy to relate to, and the bottom line is that their is a silver lining for all of us, we just need to be open and ready to see it when it appears.
Moved me to my core. Loved the characters, loved the message. This author is very talented!
I read this book in exactly 6 1/2 hours after finishing quicks newest book. This by far is his best story. Even better that silver linings. Emotional, funny. Literally had to get up out of bed at 2 am for a tissue toward the end. Please read and enjoy the goodness of people!
