Friendship, Mystery, Spying, Gadgets, TV & Music Superstardom!
Follow the Adventures of Issy, Lola and Cass in
"Relatable and fast-paced... with a host of quirky characters and a retro feel, this contemporary series not only keeps its upper Middle Grade/Teen readers enthralled but is a series that totally 'gets' the interests and essence of today's teenagers..."
All Lola wants is to be a STAR! All Issy wants is to be left alone, thank you very much. All Cass wants is to play her drums, read 'Live Your Best Life', and for everyone to get along, if it isn't too much trouble.
This doesn't seem at all likely when Lola secretly decides to do something which, at best, can only be described as... unexpected, entering them into SongStarz, the television competition, and setting them on a path that feels, to Issy, rather like an out of control juggernaut with no brakes.
Issy is in no doubt that Magda Deveraux, their fierce and uncompromising Guardian, will turn them into SPAM! when she finds out.
There's friendship and music, mystery and spying, computers and hacking, general running around and of course an inside look at the weird and wonderful world of television and show business!
Even if they can break out of the high security Military Base they live on - where nothing is quite as it seems - will Issy be able to do what Lola wants?
With SongStarz Beginnings giving a hint of what's to come, SongStarz MYRIAD takes us further into the world of SongStarz and MYRIAD...
