Rocking Reads for Teens Read Week: Somebody Everybody Listens To

Somebody Everybody Listens To

--Suzanne Supplee

For Retta Lee Jones there's never been any question about what she would do when she grew up. The second that high school was done, she was heading out the door and straight towards Nashville. Retta has been blessed with a set of pipes and a love for all things country and she is determined to follow in the steps of Dolly Parton, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift... All she needs to do is get someone to listen to her...

But of course it's not so easy, stardom is not waiting across the city-lines when Retta crosses into Music City. Will she be able to stick to her guns and find a way to become Somebody Everybody Listens to, or will the call of home and the easy way out be too hard to resist? Read Suzanne's Supplee's story of hard work, open mic nights and dreams that just won't die, to find out.
