Along with Rue’s failed attempt at teenspeak—“He’s totes smart” (“totes” is just so 2010)—the characters lack complexity, and the band's story is reduced to a soap opera.

Synopsis

In this sequel to Tig Ripley: Rock 'n' Roll Rebel, things are looking up for the girls of Pandora's Box. Following their successful appearance in the University of Alabama student TV commercial, Tig and the other members of Pandora's Box are eager to be taken seriously as a rock band. But the high drama of middle-school life rears its head. First, the girls finally tire of Kyra's lack of commitment and refusal to improve her bass skills. Tig can only defend her cousin just so much. Then to add to the Kyra problem, Robbie wants to bring in a new member to the band. This new girl really sets Tig's teeth on edge. Is Tig losing her bestie status with Robbie? And now, topping everything off, Tig can't stop thinking about Will Mason. Seeing him together with bandmate Olivia is agonizing. Tig is trying to do her best as leader but will all these struggles pull Pandora's Box apart just when it looks like musical success is around the corner?
