Abstract:

"Helena Nicholls has experienced the height of fame and fortune. And now she's discovering the lows. A former member of one of the biggest bands of the 80's, and (until yesterday) England's most popular DJ, Helena has a big night out and takes a serious tumble. Now she's in the hospital with a battered face that is suddenly radio-friendly. But when the media shreds her reputation, and Helena is yanked from her beloved morning show, she hits rock (and roll) bottom. That's when she comes up with The Plan. She will write the soundtrack to her life: Each chapter will feature a pivotal moment-and each moment will have a song. She will reveal the playlist on her very last radio show, from Jimmy Cliff's ''Sitting in Limbo'' to The Cure's ''Lovesong.''But after reminiscing, sharing tunes, weathering heartbreak, and meeting a man who just may be her everything ... what will Helena do for an encore?"--Page 2 of cover.
