Sales’ (Past Perfect, 2011) latest offering is an exuberant story about identity, friendship, and the power music has to bring people together. Sixteen year old Elise Dembowski has endured a lifetime of social isolation and bullying. Walking alone one night, soon after a halfhearted suicide attempt, she stumbles across an underground dance party. There, she meets a cast of characters including the cute and mysterious Char, who help her to see the light at the end of the dark and endless tunnel that is high school. Elise finds a sense of purpose in being a disc jockey and discovers that she has the passion and talent to mix music.
