From the author of the bestselling novel Just Remember to Breathe.

Everyone should have something to rebel against.

Crank Wilson left his South Boston home at sixteen to start a punk band and burn out his rage at the world. Six years later, he's still at odds with his father, a Boston cop, and doesn't ever speak to his mother. The only relationship that really matters is with his younger brother, but watching out for Sean can be a full-time job.

The one thing Crank wants in life is to be left the hell alone to write his music and drive his band to success.

Julia Thompson left a secret behind in Beijing that exploded into scandal in Washington, DC, threatening her father's career and dominating her family's life. Now, in her senior year at Harvard, she's haunted by a voice from her past and refuses to ever lose control of her emotions again, especially when it comes to a guy.

When Julia and Crank meet at an anti-war protest in Washington in the fall of 2002, the connection between them is so powerful it threatens to tear everything apart.

A Song for Julia
June 8th, 2013
Timely, worldly, tender, insightful, brave, with a frank honesty that maintains a building pace of self talk, banter and realizations. Interestingly well formed lead characters, logical sequence of events creating a story that fell together smoothly. No missteps, and backdrop of supporting characters well balanced and not over riding leads. Many unexpected twists without getting lost. A sound read right through. Well thought out, clean directive, approachable and likable ppl and places. Love like you'll never get hurt.
