Overview

A powerful coming-of-age story about an outsider who finds herself when she enters the underground music scene.

Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski's strong suit. All throughout her life, she's been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up.

Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.

Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, Leila Sales' "This Song Will Save Your Life" powerful young adult coming of age novel is an exuberant story about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together.

Heartbreaking, heartfelt, and eventually heart-lifting, this YA novel is one I won t soon forget. If you re a music junkie who also loves YA, read it alongside Len Vlahos s "The Scar Boys" or Rainbow Rowell s "Eleanor & Park." Janet Geddis, Avid Bookshop
