So I'm thinking about the Next Book, and thinking about music... and books about music. It's a tricky thing to do, because it's hard to describe music without hearing it. And there's nothing more irritating than a character who whips out a guitar and pens some emo lines to Express their Feelings. So what works? Here're some of my favourites. What are yours?
King Dork by Frank Portman
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
The Last Days by Scott Westerfeld
Rose by Any Other Name by Maureen McCarthy
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
