A Rainbow Like You by Andréa Fehsenfeld is a drama following the life of a worn-out rock star on the road. Thirty-year-old Adrian "Jazzer" hates being on the road while touring for shows. After a decade in the limelight dissolves his marriage, Adrian takes a one-year hiatus, becoming ever more reclusive. However, pressure from his band members and management forces him to make a comeback. During one of his shows, Adrian finds a thirteen-year-old teen named Hastings Sinclair -- a synesthete who sees music through colors -- living in his bus. The two form a unique bond, and Hastings helps Adrian unleash some of his stifled creativity. In the meantime, he starts falling head-over-heels for a beautiful woman named Sasha-Rae. But when the media finds Hastings passed out in his bus, Adrian's life turns upside down.

A Rainbow Like You shows the fickle nature of fame and the negative aspects of stardom. Author Andréa Fehsenfeld crafts an engaging tale of a rock star trying to make a comeback but finding it hard to keep his band and personal life stable. The characters have distinct personalities, and they serve their roles seamlessly in driving the narrative forward. Adrian is the most fleshed-out character, and as a protagonist, he is well-realized with quite a few layers of depth in him to peel back. His relationships with Hastings and his band members were the highlight of the book for me. Overall, I enjoyed A Rainbow Like You. I will recommend it to readers who love stories with a bit of rock and roll.
