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? -- Goodreads
This is a hard review for me to write. For one, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. The characters stay true to themselves, the world is built around them and you can believe the passion they all feel.
However. It just wasn't a book for me. I love the cover, I was sold on it immediately and the idea of a group of friends traveling with their band around the country was intriguing.
Unfortunately, that's about as close as I felt to it. Bev was annoying. Constantly. And as much as I enjoy a lovesick boy-friend, I felt bad for Colby. Bev was always, excuse my language, a raging bitch and he seemed to mope over it. Granted, things have a way of working out but I just didn't feel it.
Don't think that by any means this means that it's a book to skip, it's just my opinion and really some of my best friends have detested books that have all but changed my life! Like stated earlier, there's nothing wrong with the book, it just wasn't for me!
