Okay, so my book is about this teenage rock band, just before they go national. The lead vocalist (the main character you're watching from his point of view) spends all this time chasing a girl. When he thinks he finally has her, he finds out that her boss sexually harassed her so he goes and beats the hell out of him. She gets mad because she asked him not to do anything then tells him not to call her again and runs away. He spends months searching for her while they go on tour and finally catches up with her, she tells him she wasn't mad, she was scared. Her boss is a senior member of a motorcycle gang and threatened to kill her if she told anyone. The vocalist thinks the best way to help her is to pay this guy off, so he discusses with him a price and pays it (but doesn't let him know who he really is, because he's now rich and the guy would just keep coming after him for more money). Finally he thinks they're free, but he has an interview on national tv and tells her he wants to show her to the rest of the country, show them the woman he loves. She tells him 'what if he sees it? if he knows its you I'm with, he'll never leave us alone' so they can never be seen even on the street together. The vocalist finds it unacceptable. Now I'm stuck. My original thought was that he hire a hitman to kill this guy, but it's not climatic enough just watching it. But he's only 17, I don't know if he'd pick up the gun himself. I also thought of him getting a rival gang to step in, but again, I can't think how to make it climatic. Can you think of anything? The publisher is really hounding me for the manuscript, I have to get this going. My original ending had her leaving and then just coming back, but when I submitted it to the publisher, they loved the story, but thought the ending was lacking so I had to change it. But now I'm stuck. I'd appreciate any and all ideas!
