Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.

Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road.

Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

#FirstLine ~ Daisy Jones was born in 1951 and grew up in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, California. 

I loved this book so much. It was an emotional ride. Each and every character had a distinct voice and was integral to the story. I adored how the story was slowly revealed, piece by piece, by each of the members of the band, as well as a few others. I loved that the tension was continually building. I felt like I was part of all the joys and part of all the sorrows. There was such a depth to the band and their road to success was definitely paved with some tough times and some amazing moments. Every book Taylor Jenkins Reid writes is magic and this book is no exception. Daisy Jones and The Six is a book that will suck you in and will not let you go. You will go on this ride with the band, you will feel like you are there (really there)...rooting for them, mourning with them and celebrating with them. This book is sheer perfection!!!
