Twelve-year-old Mackenzie "Mac" Lowell's dreams have come true. Thanks to her mom scoring the coolest job EVER, Mac is going from boy band fanatic to official tour member of her favorite group, Perfect Storm. Good thing she's brought along her journal so she can record every moment, every breath, and every one of lead singer Zander Welling's killer smiles in written detail and daydreamy doodles.

But between a zillion tour stops and pranks gone wrong, Zander and his fellow band members, Heath Holland and Kyle Beyer, become more like brothers to Mac. When the boys' differences start to drive them apart, can Perfect Storm's biggest fan remind them why they'reperfect together? It'll be up to Mac--and her comic-book alter ego, Mac Attack--to keep the band together and on the road to stardom

Chronicling her experiences on tour, Mac's journal springs to life with black-and-white illustrations and comic-book panels throughout its pages.

I like this book because I always wanted to be with a famous person.

i love this book because it is a chapter book

I loved this book so much my fav character was kyle he is so sweet and sensitive he is my dream guy and sncie i got to listen to the audible book Kyles acsent is to die for

Mackenzie (Mac) Lowell DREAMS of meeting her favorite band EVER, Perfect Storm. Zander, Heath and Kyle have captured her and her friend's hearts since the beginning. She is sure Zander will love her on first glance. So, when her mom gets to be their tour manager, and invites Mac to go on the road with her, she is THRILLED! But with newfound enemies and the band's fighting, is this really a tour that was meant to be?

My little sister and I read this book. She checked it out from her school library. This book was so fun and dreamlike because what girl actually gets to go on tour with a boy band?! That was really cool about the story. When things start to go bad between the boy band, Perfect Storm, Mackenzie, the main character, brings them back together.

At first I didn't think I was going to like this book at all, but it was actually okay. I like how the author made this book written as a journal instead of a regular book, the black and white illustrations, and comic-book panels which makes it more lively.

I did not enjoy this book it wasn't a type of book i would like to read to myself are anyone i know i just found this book boring

Before Mac was born her mom brought bands on tour and managed it. But when Mac was born her mom decided to stay with Mac and raise her. Then when her mom was offered to go on tour with Mac's favorite band Perfect Storm she accepted and now Mac and her are on tour.

Mac's mom works with bands and manages singers. When she gets to go on tour with her favorite band because of her mom's job Mac finds out that the band isn't the same way that they are in their Youtube videos. She also decided that maybe she didn't like her favorite boy as much as she thought.
