An aspiring teenage singer finds herself playing a different tune when she falls for a boy who could jeopardize her future dreams in Olivia Wildenstein’s romantic YA novel, Not Another Love Song.
Angie has studied music her entire life, nurturing her talent as a singer. Now a high school senior, she has an opportunity to break into Nashville’s music scene via a songwriting competition launched by her idol, Mona Stone. Discouraged by her mother, who wishes Angie would set more realistic life goals, she nonetheless pours her heart and soul into creating a song worthy of Mona.
But Angie’s mother is the least of her concerns after she meets Reedwood High’s newest transfer student, Ten. With his endless collection of graphic tees, his infuriating attitude, smoldering good looks, and endearing little sister, Ten toys with the rhythm of Angie’s heart.
She’s never desired anything but success until Ten entered her life. Now she wants to be with him and to be a songwriter for Mona Stone, but she can’t have both.
And picking one means losing the other.

I’ve read a couple of Olivia’s fantasy books but have never read one of her contemporary books, but I knew that I’d love this one because Olivia is such a great writer who’s able to hook you into stories almost instantly.
Angie is a girl who has big dreams of becoming a musician and given that she lives in Tennessee (the heart of country music, you’d think that her mom would be fine with it). Well Angie’s father was a musician before he pasted away and let the fame of his band affect his live and ultimately claiming it. But then, what could be the perfect opportunity shows itself when Angie’s music and personal role model announces a song writing competition, but her mother is against it. Hoping to change her mom’s mind, Angie continues to write her song in hopes that her mom will change her mind.
Then, to make matters even more interesting, Angie kind of befriends the new guy, Ten, who has more secrets than you’d think is possibly, but something about him keeps him the center of Angie’s mind. And no, it’s not because they first run in was when he hit her with his vehicle.
As they start to get to know one another bit by bit, a huge revelation was discovered about Ten on the night of homecoming. Shortly after Angie faces an internal struggle about who to believe and wonder who’s really at fault.
This is a bitter sweet book about a young girl struggling if she should follow her dream despite knowing her mom is so against it while finding out that there’s more to all of the stories she though was true.
USA TODAY bestselling author Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City and earned her bachelor’s in comparative literature from Brown University. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for the writing life, which made more sense considering her college degree.
When she’s not sitting at her computer, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, and attempting not to forget one of her kids in school.
She has a slight obsession with romance, which might be the reason why she writes it. She’s a hybrid author of over a dozen mature Young Adult love stories.
