She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah! When Regina Bloomsbury's band, the Caverns, breaks up, she thinks it's all over. And then she makes a wish—"I wish I could be as famous as the Beatles." The Beatles are her music idols. The next day, she gets up to find that the Caverns are not just as famous as the Beatles, they have replaced them in history! Regina is living like a rock star, and loving it. There are talk shows, music videos, and live concerts with thousands of screaming fans. And Regina is the star of it all. But fame is getting the better of Regina, and she has a decision to make. Does she want to replace the Beatles forever? Greg Taylor's The Girl Who Became a Beatle is a rocking young adult novel about the good and the bad of Hollywood, fame, and rock 'n roll.

“As in his debut novel, Killer Pizza, Taylor has hold of an undeniably clever concept.” –Publishers Weekly
“Regina’s relationship with her father–particularly as it is threatened by the appearance of her estranged mother–and her discovery of other famous bands that were living through “replacements” provide some depth to the narrative.” –School Library Journal
“Easy appeal to fans of music-fueled novels.” –Booklist
