about this item

What if you could make someone love you back, just by singing to them? Fans of Jandy Nelson’sI’ll Give You the Sun and Leslye Walton’s The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavenderwill be captivated by this contemporary love story with hints of magical realism. It begins with a boy, Chris. He’s older and in a band, and, of course, Lorelei wants him. He wants her too, after hearing her sing. But does he truly love her, or is he bewitched somehow? Does it matter? When Lorelei sings, she can reach into people’s hearts and change them, but she has no control over her power. She manipulates friends and strangers without meaning to and can’t take it back. And she’s not the first woman in her family to possess this dangerous gift: she sees the same dynamic playing out in her parents’ disastrous marriage and wonders if she and Chris are doomed to repeat their mistakes. Can Lorelei find a way to rise above? Will something have to break before she can move on?
