From the author of the bestselling novel Just Remember to Breathe. Everyone should have something to rebel against. Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he's still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn't ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job. The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success. Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy. When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart. The Thompson Sisters A Song for Julia is part of a series of novels centering around the Thompson sisters. Though the books center on the same family, they are standalone novels and can be read in any order.

As I predicted this book made me angry, angry at what happened to Julia, angry at how her parents, especially her mother, handled it (or not handled it), angry at Harry for not getting what he deserved. But the book also made me smile and I loved how wonderful Crank was, patient and gentle. He's the...
One of the authors whose books I swore to read prior to attending the Toronto Author Signing was Charles Sheehan-Miles. I only knew that he was Andrea Randall's mentor, and after finishing In the Stillness and reading the preview for The Last Hour, I was intrigued. I bought that book when I caught i...
A song for Julia was not exactly what I expected, not in a bad way, just different. I deliberately read the first book in this series, as I've been caught out reading books out of order before. With the Thompson Sisters series this isn't the case, either could be read as a stand alone book. What...
