"An oral history about a fictional rock band instilled with overwhelming nostalgia for "the good old days"...talk about my kinda jam. Reid understands the power and importance of memory and the therapeutic nature of music, and through this understanding she builds a narrative that fuses the two in a way that forces the reader into the world of these characters."
"Thank you @emily_calkins for this book recommendation! When I started it, I didn’t know a movie is about to be released and I swear, as I was listening to the book, I kept thinking this would make an amazing movie. Well, the movie is coming, although on Prime Video so I have my sincere doubts that they will do justice to the tender love that book brings to life so well. This book had me go through all the emotions imaginable. I love a good love story this one hits home. A must read. "
"“You're all sorts of things you don't even know yet” OH MY GOD!! AMAZING! FAST PACED! I love every second of this. I listened to the audiobook and that is the best format to consume this book. I love Camila so much. She is everything to me in this book. The moral of this book is, don’t do drugs kids!!!"
"Totally want to hear this soundtrack! The characters were rockstars but also human. I did not want it to end."
