    I am so, so excited to introduce the cover of The Disenchantments

    What do you think?

    And here is a little bit about the book straight from the Penguin catalog . . .

    Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev’s band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she’s abandoning their plans—and Colby—to go her own way in the fall.

    But the show must go on and The Disenchantments weave through the Pacific Northwest, playing in small towns and dingy venues, while roadie-Colby struggles to deal with Bev’s already-growing distance and the most important question of all: what’s next? 

    Morris Award–finalist Nina LaCour draws together the beauty and influences of music and art to brilliantly capture a group of friends on the brink of the rest of their lives.


    I'm so excited to share this book with all of you! It comes out in spring 2012, but I'm sure I'll have some ARCs to give away before then. Stay tuned for lots of fun updates.

    Happy summer, everyone!
