Alecia Whitaker is the author of The Queen of Kentucky and Wildflower.

She applied the Page 69 Test to Wildflower and reported the following:
I think this page in Wildflower gives the reader a great glimpse at the rising star of the main character, Bird Barrett. She has just been discovered by a talent scout and is on the verge of getting a deal. This may not bode so well for the rest of the members in her family band, since the scout is only interested in Bird as a solo artist, but it's exciting for readers to get a behind-the-scenes look at life on Music Row. I think the last sentence of the chapter, which just happens to end on page 69, says it all:

"...I have eight hours to turn the stories on the pages of my journal into songs worthy of a record deal."
