This is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re anticipating.

Title: This Song Will Save Your Life
Author: Leila Sales
Release Date: September 17th, 2013
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (Macmillan)
Pages: 288
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. Goodreads

This just sounds like me in high school. Making friends was a hellish ordeal and music is a big part of my life (albeit not DJing). Anyway, this sounds like it has all the necessary elements that can make me love a contemporary, so I’m very excited.

    1. Hah, glad I'm not alone in that. I remember people saying, "High school is the best time of your life" and just NO because SRSLY that would be depressing.

    2. Jealous! They rejected me, but I'm suspecting that's because my profile clearly states that I live outside the US. *sigh*
