Description

From the award-winning, bestselling author of Hold Still and We Are Okay.

Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev's band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she's abandoning their plans - and Colby - to start college in the fall.

But the show must go on and The Disenchantments weave through the Pacific Northwest, playing in small towns and dingy venues, while roadie- Colby struggles to deal with Bev's already-growing distance and the most important question of all: what's next?

Morris Award–finalist Nina LaCour draws together the beauty and influences of music and art to brilliantly capture a group of friends on the brink of the rest of their lives.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2011 – After Colby graduates from high school, his well-laid plans to spend a year traveling through Europe go up in smoke when his travel partner and best friend, Bev, reveals she s going to art school instead. Colby is angry and hurt, but he doesn t have time to do much brooding. He s committed himself to playing chauffeur for Bev s all-girl rock band, the Disenchantments, on their first (and probably last) summer tour. Chronicling the band s road trip up the West Coast, this insightful coming-of-age story expresses how a teen in limbo learns some profound lessons about disappointment, love, and the pursuit of dreams in some unexpected places. Between gigs, Colby meets unlikely kindred spirits a tattoo artist, a semifamous graffiti artist, and a female farmer whose outlooks influence his decisions about the future. LaCour (Hold Still) skillfully draws connections between art and life as she delves into the heart of her characters, revealing their fears and celebrating the creative forces that inspire them to reach for the stars. Ages 14 up.

Customer Reviews

Different

This book was very good! It's nice to read a book that doesn't follow the same pattern as all the other young adult novels. Also I loved listening to the same songs they did during the book. This book has a lot of inspirational quotes! It was very good! 👏🏼

Great read

Nina provided a fun, revealing story of friendships along the road trip through Northern California and Oregon. I was drawn in to the relationships of the interesting cast of characters.
