The GoodReads summary:
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.
Nina LaCour's other book, "Hold Still," surprised me with how much I liked it, so I'm way excited for her new book. It seems like road trips are the new "thing" in contemporary YA, but since I'm not tired of them yet, I'm still looking forward to all the road trip books--with this one definitely included.
