Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event brought to you by Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming books we can’t wait to read.
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales
Publication Date: September 17, Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR)
Publisher’s summary :
Making friends has never been Elise Dembowski’s strong suit. All throughout her life, she’s been the butt of every joke and the outsider in every conversation. When a final attempt at popularity fails, Elise nearly gives up. Then she stumbles upon a warehouse party where she meets Vicky, a girl in a band who accepts her; Char, a cute, yet mysterious disc jockey; Pippa, a carefree spirit from England; and most importantly, a love for DJing.
Told in a refreshingly genuine and laugh-out-loud funny voice, This Song Will Save Your Life is an exuberant novel about identity, friendship, and the power of music to bring people together.
Music + Humor? Sold. Everyone can relate to feeling like an outsider sometimes, and it sounds like Elise hits rock bottom. I like that she finds people to connect with, and bonds over music. There’s not too many books featuring DJ’s either – how fun!
That cover is a knockout too – can’t wait for this pretty to hit shelves!

This book definitely sounds interesting! I haven’t read any YA books that deal with music now that I think about it. I do have If I Stay and Where She Went sitting on my desk, but I haven’t picked either of them up yet. Yes! to the cover :). It’s quite awesome and funky! I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it Lucy!
Yep, I’m looking forward to this one, too! I think the whole music aspect is why I loved Audrey, Wait! so much. 🙂
OMG that is so cute :))

I am so excited for this one, it’s probably my most anticipated read left to come out this year! 🙂

Ooo this is probably the first book featuring DJing that I’ve seen. It sounds really good and I like the unique set up for it. Great pick!

Great choice! I can’t wait to read this. I love contemporaries.
I’m super excited for this one. I love the DJ aspect too. I feel like it’s something that hasn’t been covered very much in YA. September isn’t so far away… kind of. Haha. (:
This sounds great. I’m gonna go add it to goodreads. I like the music aspect and that it’s about djing. I haven’t read any books with that in it. And humor is always good. Is the cover supposed to spell LOVE in the pink letters?
Yes! You are so right 🙂 Isn’t that cute?
Ungh every time I see this cover on a blog I stare at it for like five min. Awesome pick! I don’t read a lot of contemporary, so I think I’ll pick this up when it comes out and give it a go!
Me too! Definitely a hardcover worthy book.
Sounds like a great choice.
This book looks pretty good. I think I’ll have to check it out. I’m a new follower via Bloglovin’
