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?

First of all: this cover. I absolutely love it. And once I finished the book, I loved it even more, I think it represents both the characters and what the book stands for. So awesome.I really loved reading this, I couldn't put it down. I don't even think I changed positions once I sat down and start...
I enjoyed this book, because I felt that many different people could relate to Drea, and her problems, big, and small. I can relate with having trouble making friends as can a lot of people, so it was nice to have a character I could semi-relate to. This book had some very harsh issues in it. Things...
This seems to be the fall/winter where I read a lot of contemporary YA. Not that I'm complaining or anything. I've been enjoying it. :)Plus, I'm continuing my trend of reviewing books that haven't gotten a lot of publicity and aren't that well known, which sucks for the author because the book's rea...
