Book Description

Katie Sandford has just gotten an interview at her favourite music magazine, The Line. It's the chance of a lifetime. So what does she do? Goes out to celebrate -- and shows up still drunk at the interview. No surprise, she doesn't get the job, but the folks at The Line think she might be perfect for another assignment for their sister gossip rag. All Katie has to do is follow It Girl Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop (and complete the 30-day program without getting kicked out), they'll reconsider her for the job at The Line.

Katie takes the job. But things get complicated when real friendships develop, a cute celebrity handler named Henry gets involved, and Katie begins to realize she may be in rehab for a reason. Katie has to make a decision -- is publishing the article worth everything she has to lose?

Critical Praise for Spin

"It's been said that writing about music is like dancing about architecture -- so what does that make writing about writing about music? With Spin, Catherine McKenzie proves it can be a direct path to the heart of the true believer, a virtual instruction manual on how to maintain passion. She taps into both the ridiculous and sublime elements of the world her characters inhabit, and more importantly, points out how those are often exactly the same. A thoroughly engaging effort."
-David Sprague, veteran freelance music journalist whose work has appeared in Variety, Village Voice and Billboard Magazine
