This Song Will Save Your Life
by Leila Sales

Goodreads synopsis:
All her life, Elise Dembowski has been an outsider. Starting a new school, she dreams of fitting in at last – but when her best attempts at popularity fail, she almost gives up. Then she stumbles upon a secret warehouse party. There, at night, Elise can be a different person, making real friends, falling in love for the first time, and finding her true passion – DJ’ing. But when her real and secret lives collide, she has to make a decision once and for all: just who is the real Elise?

An irresistible novel about hope, heartbreak and the power of music to bring people together.

This arrived in the bookstore I work at a week or so ago, and since then I've been dying to buy it (the only reason I haven't is because I have far too many books I want to read at the moment as it is!).
The more YA contemporary novels I read, the more I've been falling in love with the genre, and this one sounds particularly good. The storyline of a nerd-turned-'cool' is not a new one, of course, but I've not come across one where they have a second life, where they can be a totally different person to how they are every day.
I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this - it sounds awesome!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
