A Goodreads user asked Emery Lord:

Why did you chose music as a theme in Open Road Summer?

Emery Lord i grew up surrounded by music. my grandmother was a professor of music- an organist & pianist; my mom plays cello & piano; i play piano, saxophone & am learning ukulele painfully slowly ;) so, no surprise that music is playing wherever i am- in my headphones as i write, my record player as i make breakfast, my piano while i wait for the kettle to boil. i'm the girl full-on dancing in my car & at every concert. so it was second nature- and a thrill- to write a book with characters who also need a good bass line to keep their heart beating.
