Goodreads: Sixteen-year-old music and sound design obsessed Drea doesn’t have friends. She has, as she’s often reminded, issues. Drea’s mom and a rotating band of psychiatrists have settled on “a touch of Asperger’s.”
Having just moved to the latest in a string of new towns, Drea meets two other outsiders. And Naomi and Justin seem to actually like Drea. The three of them form a trip-hop band after an impromptu jam session. Justin swiftly challenges not only Drea’s preference for Poe over Black Lab but also her perceived inability to connect with another person. Justin, against all odds, may even like like Drea.
It’s obvious that Drea can’t hide behind her sound equipment anymore. But just when she’s found not one but two true friends, can she stand to lose one of them?
This book was pure magic. Tara Kelley delivered a simply stunning debut. I honestly don’t know what words to describe this book. This review has been waiting to written for weeks, yet every time I go to write my review, the words I have don’t seem to do it justice.
Music is a huge part of my own life, and I loved reading a book that music was so central to the plot. It was just wonderful! Tara Kelly’s writing was wonderful. This was a very memorable book.
I love the characters. Every one of them was very well writte and seemed so down to earth and real. Tara Kelly did an awesome job with her characters in the fact that none of them were sterotypical and cliche. Every character was very memorable in their own ways. Each had a past that really helped you identify with them. I loved how Drea didn’t just let her mental illness rule her life.
This is definately a book you will not want to miss. Tara Kelly wasted no words in Harmonic Feedback, and every page draws you in. Tara Kelly is definately an author to watch; I personally cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!
