About the Book

A Song to Take the World Apart

Hanging out with Chris was supposed to make Lorelei’s life normal. He’s cooler, he’s older and he’s in a band, which means he can teach her about the music that was forbidden in her house growing up. Her grandmother told her when she was little that she was never allowed to sing, but listening to someone else do it is probably harmless --- right?
 
The more she listens, though, the more keenly she can feel her own voice locked up in her throat, and how she longs to use it. And as she starts exploring the power her grandmother never wanted her to discover, influencing Chris and everyone around her, the foundations of Lorelei’s life start to crumble. There’s a reason the women in her family never want to talk about what their voices can do.
 
And a reason Lorelei can’t seem to stop herself from singing anyway.
