Waiting On Wednesday (57): This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers talk about the books they are most eager for!

This Week's Pick: This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Release Date: September 17th, 2013

Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski’s strong suit. All throughout her life, she’s been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.

Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, THIS SONG WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE is an exuberant novel about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together. (Summary from Goodreads)
 
As someone who has had music change their life, this book is going to hit pretty close to home for me. I love reading about the power of music, and I'm a sucker for a coming-of-age story. From what I've been hearing about This Song Will Save Your Life, this book is fantastic. Stunning, and beautiful. I cannot wait to see for myself.
