Sixteen-year-old, music- and sound design-obsessed Drea doesn’t have friends. She has, as she’s often reminded, issues. Drea’s mom and a rotating band of psychiatrists have settled on “a touch of Asperger’s.”Having just moved to the latest in a string of new towns, Drea meets two other outsiders. And Naomi and Justin seem to actually like Drea. The three of them form a band after an impromptu, Portishead-comparison-worthy jam after school. Justin swiftly challenges not only Drea’s preference for Poe over Black Lab but also her perceived inability to connect with another person. Justin, against all odds, may even like like Drea. It’s obvious that Drea can’t hide behind her sound equipment anymore. But just when she’s found not one but two true friends, can she stand to lose one of them?Harmonic Feedback is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

You know how sometimes you start to obsess over new girl you've just met - you like her hair or clothes, playlist on iPod, way she thinks, how is seems that you two are on the same page... Yeah, I'm talking about girl crush! I have, so far, the biggest girl crush ever. On Tara Kelly! She took my bre...
I frikkin' love this book!! Drea is a girl I can somehow relate. She was not good in socialising with other people( like me) but yet she was not afraid to be who she is...
