The book pulls you into the drama immediately with an extreme accident that changes lives. The main character, Rebecca is portrayed with all the angst of a teenager going through a very difficult time. The relationships she has with her friends and the boys in her life were well done. Add in music as a character (because it really does play an important part in the story) and I can see why this book won the YA Award from the Book Talk Radio Club. This is a short book that contains a big story.

A unique and compelling story, following a young singer as she lives the worst nightmare of any musician. Losing her hearing plunges Rebecca into a deep depression. Her journey back to life, back to love, and back to her passion, is a touching story that will enthrall young adults and adults young at heart, alike.

A musical romance that takes place in Flagstaff, Arizona where a young musician loses her hearing and her entire world. Somehow, she must find a way to sing, to live again. A touching tale about following your dreams.

If you like Jessica Park or Melissa de la Cruz, you'll love Nothing But a Song.
