by Nina LaCour
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 first saw this book, only yesterday, on a BookTuber's channel, AmirasBookReviews, where Amira was reviewing it (you can click to go to the video review HERE).
The first thing I thought about the book, when she showed it in the video, was that the cover was really beautiful (even though Amira also said that it was a little misleading), so it had already grabbed my attention. The second thing that really grabbed me about it, was that it involved a road trip (of sorts), and having read Saving June by Hannah Harrington recently, I'm a little bit in love with the whole road trip thing.
On top of this, it just sounds like a really great coming-of-age kind of story.
This has definitely gone on my wishlist, and as soon as I shift some more books from the TBR mountain, I will definitely be getting this one!
