Victoria Cruz inhabits two worlds: In one, she is a rock star, thrashing the stage with her husky voice and purple-streaked hair. In the other, currently serving as her reality, Victoria is a shy teenager with overprotective Cuban parents, who sleepwalks through her life at the prestigious Evanston Academy. Unable to overcome the whole paralyzing-stage-fright thing, Victoria settles for living inside her fantasies, where nothing can go wrong and everything is set to her expertly crafted music playlists.

But after a chance encounter with an unattainably gorgeous boy named Strand, whose band seeks a lead singer, Victoria is tempted to turn her fevered daydreams into reality. To do that, she must confront her insecurities and break away from the treadmill that is her life. Suddenly, Victoria is faced with the choice of staying on the path she’s always known and straying off-course to find love, adventure, and danger. 

It wasn’t hard not to fall in love with this book. The characters, mostly Victoria made you feel attached, a feeling that you were besides them. After the first chapter, I had a good feeling about THE VICTORIA IN MY HEAD , I knew that it would end up a book that I was going to love. I just didn’t realize how much I was going to love it. There was parts of me that couldn’t believe that it was her debut novel. I think that it became one of my favorite books of 2017. I am still thinking about it, even though I finished it last night. Not only was the story was beautiful, take a look at the cover, how can you not want pick up a book like this? Actually that was the first what captured my attention was the stunning cover, and of course the title. I couldn’t help but get curious about it. Once I found that it was about music, I knew that I had read it. I am happy that I did, I just wish that I read it sooner than I had.

Levi, I felt as if that was a bad choice to begin with. There was no real connection between two of them. I know that Levi liked her, at least at first but he probably sensed that she might not feel the same about him. I think that the two of them should broken up, way before they did. Of course that didn’t give him excuse to treat her way he did. Half of time he acted as if he didn’t even care. I do feel that Victoria shouldn’t agree to date to begin with, if she was not interested in him, that is why it did not work. There was no connection, no attraction between two of them. Strand on other, he was the one that she belonged right from start. I felt as there was some sort of attraction between two of them, from moment that two of them met in hallway. Plus he treated like she should have been by Levi, respected her, listened to her and top of it, her parents loved him. If your parents love a guy that is always a good sign. All through the book, I hoped she would come senses and come realized that it was Strand she wanted to be with. Even Annie realized it before her.

Besides Victoria, Annie was one of my favorite characters. I love how she was always there for Victoria. I think if it wasn’t for Annie for sending that tape, she wouldn’t end up in band, because she wouldn’t get enough courage to do it on her own. Annie gave her the push that she needed. I just wish that her parents were more understanding, at least a bit more understanding. At same time why they reacted way they had, especially when they saw the change in Victoria. Like her parents, I saw a signfigant change in Victoria but in good way. I am still curious what happened to everyone after, did their band get back together? I couldn’t help but get inside Victoria’s head as I read THE VICTORIA IN MY HEAD .

An incredible journey.
