New Book

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...


  1. Let me know how the book is, I really need a new book to start. Haha, about the girl scouts. They are great sales people. The cookies basically sell themselves though - samoas are sooo good :]

    1. will do. They are good sales people, those little rascals.
