Ran to Hastings to peruse the books (despite the fact that I do not need to buy ANY more books, but oops...) and before I made it inside I was stopped by those cute, eager faces and braids known as the Girl Scouts. I was just going to buy one box, but after looking into the pleading eyes of one weary mom I succumbed and bought three boxes of Samoas. (These are the sorts of sacrifices I feel I have to make to support today's youth.)
So then I finally made it inside Hastings and fell in love with the cover and description for this book:
"Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev's band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she's abandoning their plans - and Colby - to start college in the fall.
But the show must go on and The Disenchantments weave through the Pacific Northwest, playing in small towns and dingy venues, while roadie- Colby struggles to deal with Bev's already-growing distance and the most important question of all: what's next?
Morris Award–finalist Nina LaCour draws together the beauty and influences of music and art to brilliantly capture a group of friends on the brink of the rest of their lives."
I'm starting it today so I'll give a review once I've read it. A hot cup of tea, a good book, some Samoa cookies...
