Reseña del editor
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 Awardfinalist 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.

But...based on the cover, and the blurb, I was expecting something different, something fun and upbeat and unique. What's actually inside? A straight line of downers. I understand not all books can be roller coasters of ups and downs. Some books are meant to be straight lines and there are several I can think of that I loved. But this one I just couldn't connect to. I didn't like the Bev character and it was hard to relate to the guy who was so in love with her. Why was he in love with her? Maybe they'd connected more in the past but in the story we did not see anything like that, just distance. I just think that being the summer after graduation and going on a road trip, it should have been a lot more FUN.
Goodbye high school, hello road trip. Colby's excited about putting college on hold and going abroad for the year with his best friend, Bev. So, when Bev changes their plans with a surprising and blunt truth, Colby's stuck with three girls (one of which he is furious at), a VW bus named Melinda, and absolutely no clue where to go after the tour wraps up. Things are even more complicated, since Colby's torn between his anger and his deeper feelings for Bev. As the tensions rise and secrets spill, The Disenchantments takes the characters through the struggles that reside in friendship, individuality, and adulthood.
Nina LaCour's sophomore effort is excellent. Colby's voice strikes a note of authenticity and relatability from the beginning, and you can't help but to feel as angry as he is when Bev changes their plans with minimal notice. As for the Disenchantments, they may be a terrible band, but they're great characters - you've got Bev and her secrets, Meg and her positive attitude, and Alexa's utter sweetness. Colby's relaxed and giving personality melds perfectly with this trio, but it's his journey and his character growth that resonates the most in The Disenchantments.
HIGHLIGHTS: Not only is this story music-orientated, but it's deeper than the light, carefree cover suggests. There's a nice mix to the fun and the serious moments, and I loved every second it took reading this story. The art aspect to the story was great, and I love how the back jacket cover of the novel ties into some of that. Colby, a male main character, was a wonderful narrator (we definitely need more male MC's in YA lit). Even side characters were pretty great, and each seem fully developed.
LOWLIGHTS: Maybe a bit more page-time with some side characters.
RATING: 4.5 out of 5
