From the award-winning, bestselling author of Hold Still and We Are Okay. Colby and Bev have a long-standing pact: graduate, hit the road with Bev's band, and then spend the year wandering around Europe. But moments after the tour kicks off, Bev makes a shocking announcement: she's abandoning their plans-and Colby-to start college in the fall. 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? Printz Award-winner 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.

"Newly graduated, Colby is excited about his future, beginning with a summer tour with his best friend Bev's girl band, The Disenchantments. After that, he and Bev will wander around Europe together. Robbie Daymond's low-key narration reflects Colby's difficulty containing his romantic feelings for Bev. His muted tone changes, however, when brooding Bev announces she won't be traveling for a year in Europe with Colby after all but instead will be going to college. Colby's feelings of betrayal and anger threaten to erupt. Daymond captures Colby's emotional flare-ups--expressed first as ugly muttered sarcasm and finally as full-blown accusations. By the end, the richness of the summer road trip and the people they meet turns Colby's disenchantment into understanding, letting go, and a stronger sense of self.
