In 1973 “crazy” Holly unexpectedly falls in love with Trevor, a roadie for a famous English rock band. From the moment they meet, dreams of marriage, children, and a normal life are suddenly – finally – within Holly’s grasp.

Trevor takes her with him on tour and introduces her to the very “un-normal” backstage world of Rock and Roll. When she steps onto the band bus, she walks into a colorful, exciting adventure in a world completely different from the life that awaits her back home, where she chases cockroaches with a shoe, works at a low-paying job, and sleeps to escape the hunger.

Unfortunately, Holly has a secret. Plagued by panic attacks, periodic rages, and depression, she needs to learn why her mentally ill mother committed suicide, long ago, so she can save herself. Thus far, she has found no answers. She must conceal her symptoms from Trevor in order to keep him, but as their relationship becomes progressively more serious, her illness becomes increasingly more difficult to hide.

Can Holly keep the crazy at bay for long enough to let her dreams come true?

HANG ON won the silver medal in the Living Now Book Awards under its original title, ALL TORC D UP. It was also chosen by Red Adept Reviews as a “Red Adept Select” title, voted “outstanding in its genre.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I really loved reading this book. I loved reading Holly’s thoughts and struggles. I loved readying about her life and its ups and downs. All in all a great read…


Hang On is both an enjoyable read and very thought provoking. In reading it I often found myself contemplating my own thoughts and past making it a thought provoking novel as well as good entertainment.


Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Being a big rock fan I loved reading about the life on the road for a band and their groupies. Highly recommend.


Ever since reading Threads, I’ve been waiting for Nell Gavin’s next novel. And boy, she delivered in a big way! Again, Gavin transforms her readers. Warning. Hang On will grab your heart right out of the gate and it will break it before it uplifts it and then sends it to the quirky, backstage world of rock’n’roll, 70’s style.


Hang On is so beautiful it’s like reading poetry. I fell in love with the main characters & also loved the way Ms. Gavin weaves their experiences in with real rock stars’ lives. I read compulsively & often can’t remember a book days later. This book will stay in my heart for a long time.
