HTTTRS is a triumph for introverts and music lovers of any stripe! There is so much here for the casual or keen observer of pop culture, as well. The heroine, Bryn, is one of the most believable and at once lovable characters in modern fiction and her journey to herself, through the very world where so many are lost, becomes your journey and your awakening all at once.

Her wish comes true when she befriends a musician whose haunting lyrics take her to the brink of personal and professional disaster.

Alli Marshall wrote her first book when she was in second grade. It was released as a lim-ited edition, crayon-print run. She went on to win a number of awards, such as the 1980 and ’81 Wayne County History Jamborees.
