Teresa Adams is painfully shy. She dreads speaking to anyone in the hallway or answering a question in class. Teresa does have fun with having her ipod and making mock broadcast for Miami's hottest FM radio station, which happens to be owned by her stepfather. When a slot opens up at The SLAM, Tere blossoms behind the mic as the sexy Sweet T and shockingly enough, she is a huge hit. Even Gavin, the only person that she talks to is raving about the mysterious DJ's awesome taste in music. But when The SLAM announces a songwriting contest and a prom date with Sweet T is the grand prize. Sweet T's dream could turn into Tere's worst nightmare....
Violet was amazing and I could relate to him a lot. I also loved Gavin, he was cute and I loved his interest in music. Shrinking Violet is a book for anyone that has ever felt shy. It was cute, funny, and relatable. The plot is a little predictable, but I still really liked it. It was original. It reminded me of Just Listen at points. Joseph is a great writer and I can't wait for more from her in the future. I would recommend this book to anyone that has a love of music and is or was shy.
