Jack Daveyson grew up with a guitar in his hands and his head full of melodies. Ten years after writing his first riff, he knows exactly what he wants to do with his life – graduate high school, escape Wayville and hit the road with his band, Forever Fading Echoes.
But it’s a bit hard to launch a band without a singer. Enter JJ Keswick.
JJ is everything Jack isn’t: rich, confident and popular. He also happens to be one of the best singers Jack has ever heard.
Jack reluctantly lets JJ into his band and into his life. The spark between them in the practice studio grows into something neither of them were expecting – a love that threatens to tear their lives apart.
International bestselling author Victoria Kinnaird is proud to introduce you to The Keswick Chronicles, a YA rock’n’roll romance.
Pack your guitar, pull on your band tee shirt and turn up the volume – it’s time to meet your new favourite band.

***Cianna – NerdGirlSunshine’s  Review***
Honestly, I’m struggling for words,and those that know me, know I’m always saying something, good or bad. This book is SO much more then I expected, and way more then we deserve. This book is a high five to anyone who’s ever had a dream bigger then their home town, or stood outside and looked into parts of their life. This book is a prayer to those dreams, and those bands that gave you the courage to rise up and do something bigger with your life, dream a little louder, and shine just a bit brighter (even if you’re wearing all black).

Ms. Kinnaird is a powerhouse. I first became enthralled in her style with “Red Sun Rises” a book that breaks all kinds of rules, but still ranks among your all time favorite books because of the heart and soul she poured into every single page. Fake It is no different, and I can’t say it’s better, because they are both such different and amazing pieces of fiction. There’s blood, sweat, tears and a passion for music so strong that it grips you and pulls you along in this novel. You know this novel is raw and honest because the author has been there, she’s lived it, and poured it all into her characters. She built them from the ground up, so real that they remind you of people you know. They could be people a town over from you, and when the book ends you missed them, just like you miss your best friend, or your favorite album. It’s a masterpiece that will resonate with people for years to come because the base themes of love, acceptance, being alone, and being broken never go away.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Very few times is there a book that mentions one of my favorite songs, but to have a book with a playlist that lights your soul on fire, and a cast of characters so memorable you would think you were right there, standing on the sidelines and this story was your story, as well as everyone else’s. This book is for everyone, because anyone can relate to something in this story, and to anyone who would avoid it for the romance between Jack & JJ, you’re an idiot. There love to beautiful, and it’s what we all dream of. They make this book shine bright, and they make it an instant favorite. I apologize for being so wordy, but I would hate for anyone to judge this book without reading it, missing what truly leaves you speechless at the end. Thank you Ms. Kinnaird, from someone who has been on the outside, who has cried when her favorite band broke up, and who has lived so much brighter for what music brings into your life. You captured it in this book, and I cannot wait to see what’s next!
