What readers are saying on Goodreads:

This book is about hanging onto memories of loved ones who have left us and passion, oh so much passion. The characters love of music shines through the pages like a beacon and had me wondering when I could book a trip to Ireland. ” -Sarah Patton

It was such a fun read and the characters were so relatable that I even found myself wishing that I could find my very own Chasing Eveline album just so I could listen along to Ivy’s favorite songs.” – J.M. Sullivan, author of Alice: The Wanderland Chronicles

It combines a lot of what I love about YA literature: music, romance, and hilariously awkward situations.” – Ms. Foor

The aspect of this band, Chasing Eveline, with such heartfelt lyrics to their name that drives Ivy is reminiscent of my own relationship with music, and offers more perspective to the book“- Sagarika

And honestly, the best part of this entire book to me was that it was a realistic story told about a teen girl dealing with profound pain and grief – and it didn’t involve sex, drugs, mutilation, and suicide. She was strong in her brokenness. She was resilient. Actually, a wonderful example of how young people can rise above their unfortunate circumstances by finding something other than harmful substances and destructive tendencies to help them through.” -Dori Ann Dupre, author of Scout’s Honor

Hauser hooks you from the first moment Ivy speaks of finding her mother, and she keeps you reading throughout Ivy’s journey of self-identity and discovery.” – JJ Burry

I found my self laughing out loud at the thoughts that go through Ivy’s head and reminiscing about growing up in Indiana myself.Charlotte

A great story about friendship, family ties and growing up. If you’re a fan of YA, you should give this a read. ” – Alice

Her obsession with the band Chasing Eveline reminded me so much of how I used to play Depeche Mode songs on repeat and I adored her friendship with Matt.” – Cath Deacon

“I loved Leslie’s book, bringing me back to my love of 80s music. ” – Wendy
