Fifteen year old Jonah Levine is practically invisible at Applecrest High. His Facebook page is pathetic, his baseball skills are mediocre at best, and his IQ seems to drop 50 points when talking to girls. However, everything changes when his rock band, Hitstreak becomes the hottest teen sensation in the country.

So why isn't he jumping for joy?

Well, for starters, that hit on the radio wasn't really recorded by his band. In fact, six months ago, he and his friends could barely play a note between them. And now they're about to perform in front of 15,000 screaming fans. What began as a mindless prank had quickly spun out of control, involving his father's secret past as a 70's rocker, a high school bully who wants in on the action, and a powerful, ruthless, media mogul who will stop at nothing to claim the band as his own. Will Jonah prevail? Or will he and his band go down in flames and become the biggest farce in pop music history?


"Ever wonder what it's like to be a major rockstar?".. YES!

Overnight Sensation is definitely one of the few books that somehow managed to get me reading the whole book in one sitting. And no, I am not exaggerating. Overnight Sensation is the kind of books which made me feel, think and laugh. I had high expectations for this book that constantly got me waiting to be amazed that I got too busy trying to find that special moment to really enjoy it. I failed....
But once I read it all over again, committing myself to just READ, that's when I saw the beauty of the story written by the Hal.

The thing I loved most about Overnight Sensation would be Hal's way of writing. He has this kind of skills that creeps in little by little that makes a paragraph seems like any other regular paragraphs in the world of books, up until I reach its end and BAM!!

It seems to me that Hal Eisenberg really understand teenagers. I thoroughly enjoyed 'Experiencing' what Jonah Levine (Joman) and his band go through, combined with their sarcasm and banters. To me, the characters are the most important thing in Young Adult contemporary literature, because without them all that's left is the real world. But Overnight Sensation does not have characters.... it has people that you'll empathize with and desperately want to know more about. I totally fell in love with them; their quirks, their humors, their interactions, their passions,.....Hal, well done! 

 It's an overall amazing book and I will heavily recommend it to anyone on Earth that are trying to look for meanings and are interested in a good read.

3.685 - Good!!
