Unlike TRL darlings Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and Ashlee Simpson, Hope Partlow didn't arrive on the teen-pop scene riding the coat-tails of a television show, a movie career or a famous sister. The 17-year-old Tennessee native gets by on her own talent on a winning debut that shows real hope for the genre. From the gleaming guitar pop of the title track, a self-affirming anthem for the Seventeen set, to the tender country strains of the ballad "Let Me Try," the pure-voiced Partlow radiates a warm appeal. Her label, Virgin Records, is clearly a big believer in her; she got Grammy-winning producer Matt Serletic (Matchbox Twenty), then the chairman of the company, to get behind the boards for her CD, and he's rounded up a sweet set of songs that will make Hilary, Lindsay and Ashlee jealous.
