    1. I just finished reading this book and I honest to God have no idea what the whole purpose of those 272 pages was.Seriously, the entire time I kept asking myself what is this book about? Why am I being told all of this? What is the plot? Because what I just finished reading was just a very long narration of the day-to-day life of a teenage girl who keeps whining either about people fangirling over her mother who used to be in a somewhat famous band, or just because she’s very bored and has noth [...]

    2. 3 Dusty-Moon-Stars!!I picked this book because of the beautiful cover and name. My expectations and what this book actually gives are two extremes.Expectations :1. Usage of 'gaming' terms and musical band terms.2. About Vic's love for video games.3. A nice bestie and boyfriend.4. Coming-of-age theme.So the problem is that the blurb was misleading. The way it describes the book, one would consider it to be a coming-of-age book about growth as an individual, maturity etc, but it was nowhere seen i [...]

    3. *I received a free copy through NetGallery in exchange for an honest review.*4.5 StarsI really, really loved this book.I only requested this because I really liked the cover and I honestly forgot what this book even was about. So when I started reading it on the train I had no idea what it was going to be about and since I couldn’t get a decent internet connection I couldn’t even look it up. In retrospect I am so glad I didn’t because I think that I might not have liked it as much.I wouldn [...]

    4. Talk about exhausting. Okay, I think y'all know me by now. I hate to leave one-stars. Honestly, it makes me feel terrible, especially when the book has such potential. But my mind hit a block here. I couldn't find much of anything to compliment here. In this cast, at least.Victoria's mom isMicky Wayne,the frontwoman of the long-retired punk-rock band, Dusty Moon. It must be cool to have a rockstar for a mom, right? Right. Victoria doesn't think so. So throughout the story, she complains endlessl [...]

    5. Copy courtesy of NetGalleyI found myself appreciating this book a bit more than I enjoyed it.The concept appealed at once: takes place in Canada, the main characters being sixteen-year-old Victoria, or Vic, and her mother Mickey, once part of a famous band whose legacy lingers even though the band broke up when Vic was a baby.The story takes place over a summer, at the center of which Mickey is to travel to Japan for a band reunion, a trip that left-behind Vic resents. The relationship between m [...]

    6. Under the Dusty Moon had so much going for it - an interesting plot, a setting in Canada, promises of a mother/daughter relationship, and classic rock inspired music. All four things I love and need more of in a contemporary. But this one took a weird direction somewhere and it didn't work out in the way I hoped it would.My main problem with this book is that I hated Vic. She's whiny, mean, and inconsiderate. All that really matters to her is her potential boyfriend, who I did not find attractiv [...]

    7. Under The Dusty Moon was disappointing on epic proportions.  You see, when I first went into this book, what I expected was girl power, plenty of gaming goodness, a protagonist I would love and a parent-daughter relationship that would be eye-opening in its goodness.  What I got—at least after the 35% mark—was basically a disaster in print form.The book follows one summer in the life of Victoria Mahler, a sixteen year old BRAT.  She was the epitome of a kind of girl you would not want to [...]

    8. Under The Dusty Moon had a promising blurb but I was left with many questions about characters and trying my very best to piece this scrap-book like novel together. The elements for a good story were there but never really reached their potential. Because I revived this book from Netgally for an honest review I will say the problems I had with this novel and why it didn’t reach it’s full potential.The main character Vic came off as selfish, and inconsiderate. She whined about everything her [...]

    9. I had a hard time with the book. There wasn't a real plotline to the story, and the blurb was misleading to the extent this was a coming-of-age story. Because, coming-of-age implies some measure of personal growth and maturity, neither of which I saw the main character, Vic, exhibit. The blurb also gives the impression there was a cohesive plot, which never really appeared. Rather, Under the Dusty Moon was a meandering first-person narrated account of a spoiled brat's life over a few short weeks [...]

    10. It's hard to be sixteen when your mother's a rock star and pretty much everybody knows her for her famous band, the one that broke up when Vick was a toddler. Vick and her mom, Mick -- her mother made sure their names rhymed, are close, but sometimes Vick just wants to have her own life. She wants to be certain that some people like her for herself, not because of her mom. When Mick goes off to Japan on tour, Vick finally has a chance to explore who she is on her own terms.I loved this book! Suz [...]

    11. Read this review and more on my blog.I received a free copy of Under The Dusty Moon for my honest opinionUnder The Dusty Moon was not a bad book, but it was not a good book either. The writing style felt forced, and it just generally left me feeling unsatisfied. Don’t get me wrong, there were bits that I thoroughly enjoyed in it, like the gaming part, but the rest of the story just did not seem to flow.Victoria is the daughter of Dusty Moon’s lead singer, Micky Mahler. Under The Dusty Moon d [...]

    12. DNF- 39%I don't even know what happened. I liked this bookd then it crashed. It's a bad sign when the plot has barely developed and it's almost halfway through--and when things started rushing wayyy too quickly for my taste, I had to stop. Between the underdeveloped plot, the annoying characters, and the language that didn't appeal to me, this book wasn't the one for me.

    13. This book seems to have gotten a lot of negative reviews and I won't necessarily defend this book from all of them but I personally enjoyed this one. Yes, Vic is portrayed as a mean, inconsiderate, whiny, and selfish teenager who prioritizes her new undreamy (except to her, of course) boyfriend over her best friend. Let us not forget that she is sixteen/seventeen years old and we are all stupid at this age. Arguably, yes, we read this kind of fiction as a form of escape and we want characters an [...]

    14. You can read more review on my blog, Words and Tea Bottles.A free copy was provided to me through Netgalley in exchange for a review.Looking through the other reviews of this book after finishing it, I have to say that I share a lot of people’s sentiments about this book: it has SUCH an interesting summary, and I went in expecting Victoria to be hanging out with a cute nerd and spending time with some female video game programmers who acted like surrogate moms/big sisters to her while her moth [...]

    15. Many thanks to Dundurn, via NetGalley, for an opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review!I hate writing bad reviews of books that had a lot of potential. But truth be told - this was a really disappointing book. By the time I read it, I'd forgotten what the basic synopsis was - so I read the first part of the blurb, and then dove into the book.And - as has happened all too frequently in the past months - this book falls under the category of WTF did I just read? It wasn't tha [...]

    16. Victoria Mahler is the sixteen-year-old only daughter of rocker Micky Wayne, whose band, Dusty Moon, took the world by storm when Micky was just a teenager. The band broke up under mysterious circumstances, but, after years spent off the road being a mom, Micky's solo career is finally starting to take off. When an offer to tour Japan falls into her mom's lap, Vic is left to spend the summer under the care of her distant grandmother, and without her built-in best friend. Fortunately, a boy with [...]

    17. Under The Dusty Moon is a simple book I enjoyed. The synopsis is misleading fro what the book is really about but there were some surprises and lots of fun characters. I found Under The Dusty Moon rather predictable, but I found it really fun to read a book that is set in Canada. Toronto to be exact, it was so close to my home that I was actually in Toronto while I was reading the vast majority of this book.The plot of this book was not complex or deep, it was easy to followThe writing was meh. [...]

    18. I chose this book based on the cover – I’m a sucker for anything purple! – and the blurb on the back. It sounded different. Victoria Mahler is the daughter of two famous rock stars. Her mother Micky Wayne used to be in a famous 90s band called Dusty Moon. The band imploded when Vic’s drug addicted father disappeared off the face of the earth but there is still a lot of love out there for the music and Micky’s career is on a bit of a comeback.Vic resents this. She hates that cool teenag [...]

    19. I was accepted to a pre-realease Ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. This review is taken from my blog strawberrypanda18.wordpress Having seen a few other reviews of this book I was a bit wary about whether I would like it or not. Those of you that know me will know that I never review a book that I don’t enjoy, simply because I don’t believe in ripping apart something that someone has spent hours working on. I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!!!So we start with [...]

    20. Thanks to Dundurn & Edelweiss for the ARC!3.5 starsThis book to me felt like a prolonged snapshot--the MC, Vic, was the only one with any character evolution, and even that was quite gradual. She definitely felt realistic though--what teen isn't prone to dramatics when it comes to parents, friends and boys? Finally, I really enjoyed the parts about Fan Con and the girls' gamer guild, and I wish there was more! It did sometimes feel like that part and the examination of Micky & Vic's moth [...]

    21. Under The Dusty Moon by Suzanne Sutherland is a book that will delight a wide variety of readers. The storyline was interesting from page one, and i felt myself connecting to both characters as they were so believable.The story was fun,and never a dull moment with keeping up to Victoria and Micky's daily trials as mother and daughter.A delight to read,and a fast read, perfect for an afternoon curled up on the couch with this book.I won this book through and a copy was sent to me by the author.T [...]

    22. A fun, witty and light read about a girl, Victoria as she struggles with her rock star mother, discovering what she really loves to do and being with the one she loves. I love all the characters in this story. They're all so concise and fitting. A typical teenager, a jubilant mother, a kinda-perfect boyfriend and an obnoxious friend. Overall, this is a great book with an interesting plotline. It is full of ups and downs. Just like life.

    23. There was nothing particularly outstanding in terms of plot there but that isn't a bad thing.There is something here that makes this book just truly wonderful to read, the writing style, the characters carry the story in a way that it's just a feel good tale of these characters and their essentially every day lives and it was lovely.

    24. 3.5 starsI haven't seen a story like this before but I really enjoyed the narrative voice. Mother-daughter relationships are my favorites so I like to see them explored in novels, particularly from the daughter's point of view.Thanks to Netgalley for the arc to review.

    25. Synopsis:She's with the band, whether she likes it or not.Victoria Mahler is the sixteen-year-old only daughter of rocker Micky Wayne, whose band, Dusty Moon, took the world by storm when Micky was just a teenager. The band broke up under mysterious circumstances, but, after years spent off the road being a mom, Micky’s solo career is finally starting to take off.When an offer to tour Japan falls into her mom’s lap, Vic is left to spend the summer under the care of her distant grandmother, a [...]

    26. Under the Dusty Moon is a book about a teenage girl named Victoria, or Vic for short. She lives in the city in Canada with her mother, Micky Wayne, who happens to be the lead singer in the well-known band Dusty Moon. Ever since Vic was little, she’s felt like she’s been living in the shadow of her famous mother. Nobody ever sees her as “Victoria,” but rather as “Micky Wayne’s daughter.” One day, Vic finally works up the courage to ask her crush, Shaun, to hang out with her at the i [...]

    27. The thing I liked most about this book was the main character, Victoria. She's not the typical 16 year old, and she's flawed and she messes up at life. I loved that she was not perfect, and put together and responsible. I felt like this book was true to who the 16 year old girl is supposed to be. It's messy, and it's fun, and sometimes we do the wrong things for the right reasons. It was really easy to relate to her, and understand her. I felt that the author did an amazing job bringing this cha [...]
