BELIEVE IN ME REVIEWED
“Believe in Me” plays like a slightly political “Almost Famous”. But, only if you divorce youth and focus from the story. Well, some youth. Honestly, the “Almost Famous” angle feels like a disservice. Basically, it’s a musical story about relationships and how people need to function together without each other. But, then there’s the political activism streak.
Honestly, the book tries to cover as much ground as possible. I found myself having trouble keeping up until near the end, but it does have a point. It wants to gel into a cohesive look at how brothers can grow and change over the years. I can see musicians getting a kick out of it, I just sport a modest appreciation.

The Plot Thus Far
Tim Green’s life is falling apart; he’s just lost the single father he grew up with and his brief career in politics is in the process of crashing and burning around him. That is, until stadium-filling musical icon and political activist Jordan Lee spies a reflection of himself in the deeply wounded Tim, and draws him into his inner circle. From meeting on a jet to a recording session to a sold-out stadium concert, Green and Lee hopscotch through airports and arenas across the United States, pursuing distinct yet similar dreams, while forging a brotherly bond that may ultimately offer each the chance to gain back something of what they’ve lost. Believe in Me is a novel about heroes and believers, regret and redemption, fathers and sons, and the healing power of rock and roll.
