I am happy to be able to say that Tara Kelly’s awesome debut novel, HARMONIC FEEDBACK, was released this week!

I was lucky enough to get to read HARMONIC FEEDBACK before it sold, and right away I knew it had to get picked up. The main character, Drea, was so strong and unique, and the emotions rang so true. So I was excited when I heard some smart publisher had snatched it up, and even more excited when I found out Tara would be joining me at Henry Holt! :)

And they did a lovely job with the cover, too, didn’t they?

The official description:

Sixteen-year-old, music- and sound design-obsessed Drea doesn’t have friends. She has, as she’s often reminded, issues. Drea’s mom and a rotating band of psychiatrists have settled on “a touch of Asperger’s.”

Having just moved to the latest in a string of new towns, Drea meets two other outsiders. And Naomi and Justin seem to actually like Drea. The three of them form a band after an impromptu, Portishead-comparison-worthy jam after school. Justin swiftly challenges not only Drea’s preference for Poe over Black Lab but also her perceived inability to connect with another person. Justin, against all odds, may even like like Drea.

It’s obvious that Drea can’t hide behind her sound equipment anymore. But just when she’s found not one but two true friends, can she stand to lose one of them?

Stay tuned for a giveaway that will include HARMONIC FEEDBACK, GIVE UP THE GHOST, and other awesome prizes!

And the cover's even more fitting once you've read the book! :)
