All the Wrong Chords tells the story of Scarlett Stiles. Scarlett's lost her brother due to a drug overdose. She wants to feel better and move on, so she spends the summer with her grandfather. She's lifeguarding at the pool but also playing in a new band. She used to play in her brother's band so playing in this new band is kind of hard, but also something she really wants. Besides lifeguarding and playing in the band, she's also falling for a guy...
All the Wrong Chords is such an enjoyable and easy contemporary. I love reading contemporaries when I'm in a reading slump because they're so good and not that difficult to read. All the Wrong Chords was such a nice story about loss, music and love. It was so beautiful, but also sometimes heartbreaking. In my life I also experienced loss and the 2 things that make me feel better are
music and the love of my boyfriend, friends and family. It was also cool that there was a gay character in the book. I love that authors are creating characters that are not all straight!
I really recommend All the Wrong Chords to those who need a light and enjoyable read about loss, music and love!
