Reese Witherspoon book club pick Daisy Jones & the Six is the brainchild of popular author Taylor Jenkins Reid, and it's the story of the rise and fall of a 1970's rock band, which was reminiscent to me of a band like Fleetwood Mac.  The main questions posed to the reader are: How did they get together? And, why did they fall apart?

As one might imagine, there's sex, drugs and rock and roll in this book.  The story is told in a documentary, interview style with the band members.  

Reid is skilled at creating characters that live and breathe, and this book makes the reader years to hear Daisy Jones and lead male vocalist Billie sing together just one time. 

Daisy Jones & the Six is such a unique storyline and way of telling a story that will get all your creative juices flowing.  The book even includes a full set of song lyrics!
