I thought this book was interesting but it's a like not a love for me. The format of the book, written like an oral history, was interesting but got disjointed at times. It also made it impossible to switch between audiobook and ebook like I prefer.

I liked the fact that the characters who had
Spoilerpassed away didn't have interviews and I'll be honest I didn't even realize Teddy hadn't had one until it was revealed that he passed away. I think that was clever and also a mark of how realized his character felt even through the voice of others.

I think the part that fell flat for me was the ending being so much about
Like I guess that makes sense looking back but for me that was the least interesting part of the whole story. And the fact that
Spoiler Julia is the author was cute I guess but I think it means that more stuff probably happened between Billy/Daisy that we never actually get told because why would anyone tell this kid writing a book after her mom died that.

Not sure I'll watch the show, I like the lyrics and the scenes of them writing the album a lot and heard that is toned down more in the book which lessens my interest for now
