Advanced Praise:

A smart, sexy, and fast-paced

story with a swoon-worthy love interest. Tone Deaf will be
music to your ears.

Jessica Taylor, author of Wandering Wild

Much like its hero, Tone Deaf

s flashy, rock-star exterior
surrounds a sweet, vulnerable soul that made it impossible to put down.
It is
equal parts fun and touching, with a dash of humor and lot of heart.
friendships, as well as the romance, have intense, believable chemistry, and
with a giant pitbull named Cuddles thrown in the mix, I was in lov

Lee Anderson, author of Song of Summer

Olivia Rivers has hit all the right notes with Tone Deaf.

A. R.
Kahler, author of Pale Queen Rising and Shades of

The portrayal of Ali as Deaf is authentic and modern. She loves rock concerts
for the vibrations and sensory pull of the crowd. She prefers to sign but exasperat
reads the lips of people who talk fast or turn away as they talk. As Ali, Jace,
and the band tour amid Amber alerts, surprising emotional connection
s are
painfully forged and will resonate with young survivors of abuse, especially
Ali takes small steps toward recovery. VERDICT This gripping
tale of survival has great appeal due to the parallel boy/girl narrative
structure, the portrayal of a Deaf character at home in the realm of music and
songwriting, and the overall pop culture tenor.

  1. I can't wait to read this one! I haven't read many books with deaf characters and I love books that have music incorporated in some way.
