This Song Will Save Your Life
by Leila Sales
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Release Date: September 17, 2013
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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, THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE is an exuberant novel about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together.
I'm cheating a bit, because I've actually read this one already, but I want to put it on everyone's radar. Guys, this book is SO GOOD. It's such a powerful and emotional anthem about discovering your self-worth.
