Love, lust and rock 'n' roll: It's safe to say that "The Disenchantments" has a whole lotta things we love packed into its pages! Nina LaCour's sophomore effort (following the heartbreaking and critically acclaimed "Hold Still") is going to be a must-read for anyone who's ever fallen in love over a song—or even worse, with a musician. And today, we've got an EXCLUSIVE look at the book trailer for this sweet read!
This is a story that takes the rock 'n' roll romance and gives it a twist; instead of a wildly popular band, "The Disenchantments" are a homegrown group of high school grads who just want to have one last summer of fun before they hit the real world. And instead of a lovestruck groupie girl and a sexy frontman, this love affair takes place between the non-musical Colby and his best friend Bev—a fickle, ambivalent girl who might have just betrayed Colby's trust for the last time.
And let's be real, y'all: If you managed to watch that summary snippet about a boy who loves a girl in a band without wanting to run right out, join your own band and snag your own boy...well, you have no soul. Add the adorably evocative soundtrack by real-life folk-rock group AgesandAges, and our little hearts are already yearning to settle in for a quiet afternoon with "The Disenchantments" and a few favorite albums.
