"So engrossing, so transporting, so moving, I didn't want it to end! A beautiful, lyrical read-I loved every last word of it!"
-Alyson Noël, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of The Immortals series

What is the soundtrack of your life?

After living in twelve places in eight years, Calle Smith finds herself in Andreas Bay, California, at the start of ninth grade. Another new home, another new school...Calle knows better than to put down roots. Her song journal keeps her moving to her own soundtrack, bouncing through a world best kept at a distance.

Yet before she knows it, friends creep in-as does an unlikely boy with a secret. Calle is torn over what may be her first chance at love. With all that she's hiding and all that she wants, can she find something lasting beyond music? And will she ever discover why she and her mother have been running in the first place?

"Songs for a Teenage Nomad will send you searching for songs with meaning for the major events of your own life."
-Cindy Hudson, author of Book by Book: The Complete Guide to Creating Mother-Daughter Book Clubs.

"The best kind of song takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. It makes you think. You find yourself humming and pondering it for days. Songs for a Teenage Nomad does the book version of this. It's an unforgettable story that music lovers in particular will appreciate, but every teenager trying to find their place in the world should read."
-Stephanie Kuehnert, author of I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramoneand Ballads of Suburbia

Songs for a Teenage Nomad
March 9th, 2013
An extremely well written, easy to read, important look at the effects of Domestic Violence which affect 1:3 women during their lifetimes in the United States - and the effects on the children who have a much higher percentage of repeating the behavior (male and female). Also a wonderful introduction to the positive effects of music therapy and journaling. Kudos to author willing and able to so compassionately and competently take on such a difficult issue. From a Registered Nurse with 25 years of trauma care experience and a woman who has been there and back.
