Bellweather Rhapsody
by Kate Racculia




Overview -
Winner of a 2015 Alex Award

"Delightfully odd...A fine cast of misfits and dreamers and foes. A." --Entertainment Weekly

"A deliciously dark confection of a novel, and one of the most thoroughly enjoyable books I've read in years." --Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You

"Warm, entertaining and thoughtful, and a glorious celebration of music." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune

Fifteen years ago, a murder-suicide in room 712 rocked the grand old Bellweather Hotel and the young bridesmaid who witnessed it, Minnie Graves. Now hundreds of high school musicians have gathered at the Bellweather for the annual Statewide festival; Minnie has returned to face her demons; and a blizzard is threatening to trap them all inside. When a young prodigy disappears from infamous room 712, the search for her entwines an eccentric cast of conductors and caretakers, teenagers on the verge and adults haunted by memories. A genre-bending page-turner, full of playful nods to pop-culture classics from The Shining to Agatha Christie to Glee, Bellweather Rhapsody is a winning new novel from a writer to watch.

"Funny and exuberant, twisty and captivating . . . For its darkness and its glee, I loved this novel." -- Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

"A rollicking story . . . Racculia's exuberant voice inspires laugh-out-loud moments while also bringing to life broken people who find solace in each other's heartaches." -- Wisconsin State Journal
