Blanche Kelly's dad is a famous indie rock icon, but not many people at the private school she attends on scholarship know this. Her father left when she was in the first grade, and she can’t quite forgive her mom for not understanding that an artist like her dad needs the time and space to connect to his muse.
When Blanche creates an all-girl rock band, their sound captures a wide audience and the band is invited to compete at the Coachella Music Festival. Blanche feels this could be the perfect time for a reunion with her father. Won’t he be proud to hear her band? Won’t he be happy to get to know his only daughter?
I don't know if any of you remember, but about six or so years ago, there was this T.V. show called Joan of Arcadia. It followed a teenage girl, Joan, who was not in the least religious. However, she saw God (as many different people), who sent her on 'missions.' It's still one of my favorite shows. Anyway, Barbara Hall was one of the main writers for the show, and she has also authored Tempo Change.
The entire premise of this book intrigues me, but I mainly just want to experience Barbara Hall's writing. The cover's pretty awesome as well.
Also, I now have links to my Twitter and Library Thing on the sidebar!
