About this item
About the BookJulie Molina is about to make it big with her band, Julie and the Phantoms. There's only one catch: All her bandmates are ghosts. Back in the 1990s, Luke, Reggie, and Alex were on the cusp of rock stardom with their band, Sunset Curve, before an unfortunate encounter with Los Angeles street food brought their rock band dreams--and lives--to an end. Now, with Julie as their lead singer, the guys have a second chance at stardom. But being bandmates--and maybe more than bandmates?--is hard enough as it is! Can Julie, Luke, Reggie, and Alex keep playing gigs and growing their fan base without anyone figuring out their big secret?
Book SynopsisJulie and the Phantoms' adventures continue in this original novel based on the hit Netflix show from Descendants director Kenny Ortega!
Julie Molina and her band, Julie and the Phantoms, play their dream gig at the Orpheum. It was supposed to be Luke, Reggie, and Alex's unfinished business as ghosts, so they could cross over. But they didn't. And now, suddenly, Julie can feel them.
Whatever happens next, Julie and the guys know they've just had one of the best days of their (after)lives. And it gets Luke and Julie thinking about their last perfect days. . .
For Luke, it was the day he died -- the day Sunset Curve was supposed to play the Orpheum. For Julie, it was the day before she found out her mom was sick -- the last normal day before her life changed forever.
This exclusive Julie and the Phantoms story is told in flashbacks and alternating points of view!
