What's New? A Song to Take the World Apart by Zan Romanoff


Hi there! It’s April already, can you believe it!?
The newest book I’ve added to my to-read list is A Song to Take the World Apart. To be honest, what caught my attention about this book was that it was compared to I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson and I adore that book! I just hope this book is that awesome!
Check it out!

Expected publication: September 13th 2016 by Knopf Books for Young Readers 

What if you could make someone love you back, just by singing to them? Fans of Jandy Nelson’s I’ll Give You the Sun and Leslye Walton’s The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender will be captivated by this contemporary love story with hints of magical realism.

Hanging out with Chris was supposed to make Lorelei’s life normal. He’s cooler, he’s older, and he’s in a band, which means he can teach her about the music that was forbidden in her house growing up. Her grandmother told her when she was little that she was never allowed to sing, but listening to someone else do it is probably harmless— right?

The more she listens, though, the more keenly she can feel her own voice locked up
in her throat, and how she longs to use it. And as she starts exploring the power her grandmother never wanted her to discover, influencing Chris and everyone around her, the foundations of Lorelei’s life start to crumble. There’s a reason the women in her family never want to talk about what their voices can do.

And a reason Lorelei can’t seem to stop herself from singing anyway.
