Now on to the music! Today I want to focus on two songs that are special to Maddie and Jared. First, "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" by My Chemical Romance. Jared sings this song to Maddie to cheer her up before their audition on The Sound, and it becomes a running theme for them throughout the entire book.
And if you're looking for something to read while you wait for my book, check out my friend Jessica Love's book PUSH GIRL! It's about a teen dancer who has a spinal cord injury and has to adjust to life in a wheelchair, but the book is not depressing or preachy. It's cute and fun, realistic and uplifting, and has a sweet romance too!
