The Only Pirate at the Party

Dancing electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling shares her unconventional journey in an inspiring New York Times bestselling memoir filled with the energy, persistence, and humor that have helped her successfully pursue a passion outside the box.
A classically trained musician gone rogue, Lindsey Stirling is the epitome of independent, millennial-defined success: after being voted off the set of America’s Got Talent, she went on to amass more than ten million social media fans, record two full-length albums, release multiple hits with billions of YouTube views, and to tour sold-out venues across the world.
Lindsey is not afraid to be herself. In fact, it’s her confidence and individuality that have propelled her into the spotlight. But the road hasn’t been easy. After being rejected by talent scouts, music reps, and eventually on national television, Lindsey forged her own path, step by step. Detailing every trial and triumph she has experienced until now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia, and finally, success as a world-class entertainer. Lindsey’s magnetizing story—at once remarkable and universal—is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it’s okay to be The Only Pirate at the Party.
Entertaining read, a must for fans of Lindsey Stirling
The story of the very talented Lindsey Stirling is well written, fill with her quirky sense of humour and some heart wrenching stories. It is witty and fun to read, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it reminded me of my childhood at times. It is very rewarding to learn how she overcome many problem in life to get to where she is today.
This book contains many growing up and life lessons that I believe would be very helpful to many teens and young adults. It also highlights the importance of good family and friends in helping one deal with difficult problems in life.
Best takeaway from this book is that life is full of challenges, keep fighting, never give up.
