Waiting On: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

This Song Will Save Your Life
by Leila Sales
To be published: September 17, 2013 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux (BYR)
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]

You guys. I am ridiculously excited for this novel by Leila Sales. I adored her writing in Past Perfect (and still need to read Mostly Good Girls - which needs to be rectified stat). From the title to the cover, to all the musical references.. I just know I will connect with this book.

Bonus: check out the cover reveal post that also has the playlist for the book!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
