Book 1: Janey and the band
Janey Adams, nearly 16, has a Voice - a great voice, according to her demanding music teacher. If she works and studies she could be another Maria Callas, sing at Covent Garden! But Janey is reticent and shy, and is not at all convinced she has the ability or the confidence. HowJaney Adams, nearly 16, has a Voice - a great voice, according to her demanding music teacher. If she works and studies she could be another Maria Callas, sing at Covent Garden! But Janey is reticent and shy, and is not at all convinced she has the ability or the confidence. How is she to get the training? And will she be able to convince her parents that it is a practical idea?
Her brother Mike and his friend Ronnie, chronically hard-up students, are forming a band, Night Mission, to help pay their college fees. The third member of the band, Dave, is tall, dark and charismatic, but Janey's instant attraction quickly fades in disappointment when one of his ex-girlfriends warns her that he is a scalp hunter, collecting girls, only to walk away. But the fourth member of the band, Steve, equally attractive, is friendly and laid back. Janey feels safe with him and loves his singing.
It's not long before the new band recruit Janey to do their bookings and typing. When they play a gig for the PTA dance, which ends in an astonishing near-riot by their growing army of fans, they all realise that Night Mission is going to be something extra-special.
Janey and the Band is the first book in a series about Night Mission's climb to fame, their loves and rivalries, their ambitions and mistakes, and Janey's own search for a way to gain confidence, achieve her singing ambitions - and stay out of Dave's clutches!
Book 2:Sing the blues, Janey
Janey Adams is helping to manage the successful band Night Mission. Their music is fine, with the second single moving rapidly up the charts, but deep divisions have appeared. Bitter quarrels and jealousy are splitting them apart.
Janey herself is in big trouble. She is trying to juggle her work for the band, the housework at home, and her school work. There are gigs to attend, bags of letters to answer, telephone calls to make. Her school work has begun to suffer, and she is worried that if she doesn't pass her exams she will not get into Music College to train as a singer.
Dave's twenty-first birthday party goes terribly wrong and Janey finds herself accepting an invitation to sing at the famous Blues Room, although she knows she is under age. What will happen if her parents find out?
