"Guitar Highway Rose" by Brigid Lowry
The book would mainly be focused on teenagers in the ranges of 14 - 17 year olds since teenagers would probably face these kinds of events in their lives. It also has popular culture that the teens would appeal to, like clothes, the music and the everyday life both Rosie and Asher face, so they would recognize the other teens in this book as realistic.

They may appreciate that the book describes areas that the teenagers may like to visit or travel when they finish school; they're type of get away or escape from parents, away from their demands and comments. I like how Brigid cuts each of the pages into chapter like sectors so it's kind of like a movie where there are different scenes to a story. The blurb is quite interesting because it might request the attention of teenager's dirty humour.
