I had my parents send me more of my books from childhood, which they have in storage, so I’ve been skimming some that I remember that were pretty awesome. Did anyone ever read this one?
Holy shit, this book was my life. These teenage girls had a rock band and they became frustrated that no one was taking them seriously because they were women. So they decided to cross dress and pose as an all-boy group. Then they gain popularity and attract lots of adoring female fans and hikinks ensue while they try not to reveal their true identities. First of all, how in the hell did they even pass as boys? That astounded me. Looking back, I now see this could have been a statement of feminism/the glass ceiling and even on the effects of transphobia. Or maybe I am looking into it too much.
Some boy in their class finds out their secret and blackmails them into letting them join their band. They also enter a battle of the bands type thing and their identities are revealed and they still get chances to play. Their one fan, Didi is in love with their guitarist and follows them around threatening to steal their identity.
They also end up entering a battle of the bands and winning, finally revealing their identities to the world. This really should have been a series.
