Wild Awake

Hilary T. Smith

Things you earnestly believe will happen while your parents are away: 1. You will remember to water the azaleas. 2. You will take detailed, accurate messages. 3. You will call your older brother, Denny, if even the slightest thing goes wrong. 4. You and your best friend/bandmate, Lukas, will win Battle of the Bands. 5. Amid the thrill of victory, Lukas will finally realize you are the girl of his dreams. Things that actually happen: 1. A stranger calls who says he knew your sister. 2. He says he has her stuff. 3. What stuff? Her stuff. 4. You tell him your parents won't be able to- 5. Sukey died five years ago; can't he- 6. You pick up a pen. 7. You scribble down the address. 8. You get on your bike and go. 9. Things . . . get a little crazy after that.* *Also, you fall in love, but not with Lukas. Both exhilarating and wrenching, Hilary T. Smith's debut novel captures the messy glory of being alive, as seventeen-year-old Kiri Byrd discovers love, loss, chaos, and murder woven into a summer of music, madness, piercing heartbreak, and intoxicating joy.
