Publisher synopsis: In this summer romance, two teens find unexpected harmony amid the crowd at a legendary music festival.
First Line: (Cora) "You. Are. A. Candy. Cane."
Page 56: (Michael) Two enormous brown eyes are staring into mine. Thick lashes frame them. The look like feathers. WAit, no. They are feathers. And now they are multiplying. There were two, now four. Only this bird is red and white, with thin stripes like rivulets of deep red blood going through every feather.
Her plumage is fanning out, so many eyes and rivers. It's impossible for it to be contained.
"Tell me about your family, Michael."
Oh my God. She knows my name. This beautiful, rare bird is talking to me.
I am participating in a Blog Tour for this book. Look for my review on May 20.
