Review: Songs For A Teenage Nomad

I actually found time to  write a review! Now I'm going to type up one for Clockwork Angel. Then I'll finish reading Wondrous Strange (which is very good so far). Then I can read Halo!

Songs For A Teenage Nomad
By Kim Culbertson
My copy: ARC from publisher
Summary: After living in twelve places in eight years, Calle Smith finds herself in Andreas Bay, California, at the start of ninth grade. Another new home, another new school...Calle knows better than to put down roots. Her song journal keeps her moving to her own soundtrack, bouncing through a world best kept at a distance.

Yet before she knows it, friends creep in-as does an unlikely boy with a secret. Calle is torn over what may be her first chance at love. With all that she's hiding and all that she wants, can she find something lasting beyond music? And will she ever discover why she and her mother have been running in the first place?

Review: Songs For A Teenage Nomad is the story about Calle who moves from town to town as her mom moves from guy to guy. She never stays in one place long enough to become close to anyone. The only thing that stays the same is Calle’s love for music.

While in Andreas Bay as Calle starts her first year of high school and she finally finds a group of people she can actually call friends, the drama kids. Throughout the story Calle helps work backstage during the plays. The friends that she makes were some of my favorite characters. They were exciting, fun and didn’t care what anyone else in their little town thought about them.

 Calle also attracts attention of the boy who seems to have just as many problems as her, Sam. He seems to be the perfect football playing popular guy. Throughout the book Calle isn’t sure what to think of him, and I didn’t either.

Songs For A Teenage Nomad was an addicting and emotional book full of romance and friends. It keeps your attention from the first to the very last page. While the plot was a little predicable I still found myself in tears as Calle was. This is a book I would highly recommend, especially to any music lovers.
