Blowin' My Mind Like a Summer Breeze (Paperback)
Music, first love, and discovering yourself, all during an epic 1980's summer concert tour...performing with your parents? It's a great list of ingredients and Burlington author Roesch handles them beautifully. Rainey Cobb goes from feeling stifled but afraid of disappointing her family, to realizing she can be true to herself without the world ending.— From Blowin' My Mind Like a Summer by Benjamin Roesch
Fifteen-year-old Rainey Cobb never thought meeting someone could actually change her life. But, then again, she's never met anyone like Juliet.
It's 1995 and The Cobb Family Band, led by Rainey's rock star parents, has arrived for a week-long gig at the Midwestern resort owned by Juliet's family. Dazzled by Juliet's carpe diem attitude, DIY tattoos, and passion for grunge, Rainey falls hard. And when Juliet gives Rainey a mixtape that unlocks her heart's secret yearnings, Rainey starts seeing herself-and her vagabond, show-biz life-through new eyes.
If Rainey quits the band, her parents' fading career might never recover. But if she doesn't leap now, she might be stuck forever in a life she didn't choose...and always wonder who she could have been.
