PITCH PERFECT... IN A BOOK
" This engaging read steeped in music, romance and mystery opens a promising trilogy" Kirkus
Kevin Emerson’s EXILE is a witty and passionate ode to love, rock and roll, and the freedom that comes in the moment when somebody believes in you, even if you’re not quite ready to believe in yourself.
"...all together, it's doing that thing, he's doing that thing that a song can do. Do you know it? When a song inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will?"
Catherine Summer Carlson lives a double life. At home, she's Catherine, giving her parents the illusion of striving to meet their traditional expectations for her life. At school, she's Summer, breathing rock and roll, expertly spotting especially talented bands and working tirelessly to manage them into successful careers. Her high school, with its unique music program, has no shortage of talent.
Exile begins at the start of a new school year, when anything is possible. As 18-year-old Summer tries to move on from the band, boyfriend, and betrayal of her junior year, she meets Caleb, who is also struggling to come to terms with the past and move forward. This is where the romance, mystery, and rock ensue.
