The Sound of Us by Julie Hammerle
Release Date: June 7th 2016
Entangled Teen

Kiki Nichols might not survive music camp.

She’s put her TV-loving, nerdy self aside for one summer to prove she’s got what it takes: she can be cool enough to make friends, she can earn that music scholarship, and she can get into Krause University’s music program.

Except camp has rigid conduct rules—which means her thrilling late-night jam session with the hot drummer can’t happen again, even though they love all the same TV shows, and fifteen minutes making music with him meant more than every aria she’s ever sung.

But when someone starts snitching on rule breakers and getting them kicked out, music camp turns into survival of the fittest. If Kiki’s going to get that scholarship, her chance to make true friends—and her chance with the drummer guy—might cost her the future she wants more than anything.

My Review:

If you liked Virtuosity then you will LOVE The Sound Of Us.

I love a book where you see someone who into who they really are. I relate  to it a lot. Sometimes you have to make big changes and get out of your comfort zone to find who you really are. This is what happened to Kiki. Kiki always played the aunt. She played the lesser role in every aspect of her life. She gets into opera camp and is left to make her own friends and find per place in this world that she doesn’t feel she measures up to.

She meets this magical guy in the basement and they play a song from Project Earth. Life isn’t always so magical but you can always hope for the possibility and thats exactly what Kiki wrestles with.


Julie HammerleAbout the Author
Julie Hammerle is the author of The Sound of Us, which will be published by Entangled Teen in the summer of 2016. Before settling down to write “for real,” she studied opera, taught Latin, and held her real estate license for one hot minute. Currently, she writes about TV on her blog Hammervision, ropes people into conversations about Game of Thrones, and makes excuses to avoid the gym. Her favorite YA-centric TV shows include 90210 (original spice), Felicity, and Freaks and Geeks. Her iPod reads like a 1997 Lilith Fair set list. She lives in Chicago with her husband, two kids, and a dog. They named the dog Indiana.
