Acclaimed musician Jessamyn Violet’s SECRET RULES TO BEING A ROCKSTAR, a gritty, glittery, queer YA debut about a teenage musician who jumps at a chance to play in her favorite rock band on their upcoming world tour, only to realize her heroes have their own agenda and might be leading her down a dark path, to Peter Carlaftes and Kat Georges at Three Rooms Press, for publication in April 2023, by Devon Halliday at Transatlantic Agency.
