The Disenchantments

by Nina Lacour

The Disenchantments is a book about growing up and growing apart. I was able to snag an advance copy. This is one book where the characters feel so real - to the point they can make make you angry, embarrassed, baffled, and overjoyed.

Best friends Colby and Bev have a plan. After they graduate, Colby will drive Bev’s all-girl rock band, the Disenchanments, up the West Coast for a mini-tour from San Francisco to Portland. Then they will spend a year traveling through Europe.

At least Colby thinks they have a plan - until Bev reveals that she has other plans and won’t be going to Europe.

Hurt and angry Colby, is persuaded by the girls to still be the band’s chauffeur in his Uncle Peter’s vintage VW bus. And what a trip it turns out to be.

“This insightful coming-of-age story expresses how a teen in limbo learns some profound lessons about disappointment, love, and the pursuit of dreams in some unexpected places.”
Publishers Weekly

“This is a story about self-discovery and figuring out who you are and where you need to be in the big scheme of things. It is not flashy or fluffy; it is just really good writing. Make this book a part of your collection—you will not be disappointed

“Quirky characters, each with his or her own story, are woven into the narrative, creating a rich tapestry that will make readers confident that they are in the hands of a master storyteller. Hauntingly beautiful.

PS: It's kind of hard to post a comment b/c the word verification gets cut off. If you don't know how to tab down manually, you can't type in the letters and hit Publish.
