I’m a terrible person and haven’t finished this book yet. But I have started and so far I am loving it! This book has been on my radar for a long time, but I finally picked up a copy and noticed the new edition has a little badge that reads “For fans of Stranger Things” which has made me even more excited for it because I adored Stranger Things.
Here’s a blurb about the book:
Mexico City, 1988: Long before iTunes or MP3s, you said “I love you” with a mixtape. Meche, awkward and fifteen, has two equally unhip friends — Sebastian and Daniela — and a whole lot of vinyl records to keep her company. When she discovers how to cast spells using music, the future looks brighter for the trio. With help from this newfound magic, the three friends will piece together their broken families, change their status as non-entities, and maybe even find love…
Mexico City, 2009: Two decades after abandoning the metropolis, Meche returns for her estranged father’s funeral. It’s hard enough to cope with her family, but then she runs into Sebastian, and it revives memories from her childhood she thought she buried a long time ago. What really happened back then? What precipitated the bitter falling out with her father? And, is there any magic left?
Signal to Noise also comes with a PLAYLIST!! Give it a listen right here.
I’m reeeally hoping to finish this one up soon and move on to my selection for June, Human Acts by Han Kang. Can’t wait!!
