ABOUT THE BOOK

Alexi Littrell hasn't told anyone what happened to her over the summer. Ashamed and embarrassed, she hides in her closet and compulsively scratches the back of her neck, trying to make the outside hurt more than the inside does.
 
At school, nobody sees the scratches or her pain. The only person she connects with is the mysterious Captain Lyric, who writes song lyrics on her fourth-period desk for her to complete. With pencil marks and music, Alexi carves out a comfortable space for herself as she and the Captain finish each other's songs—words on a desk feel safer than words spoken aloud.
 
But when Bodee Lennox, the quiet and awkward boy next door, comes to live with the Littrells, Alexi discovers an unlikely friend who understands her better than anyone. He has secrets of his own and knows all about suffering in silence. As they lean on each other for support, Alexi gives him the strength to deal with his past, and Bodee helps her find the courage to finally speak up.

I used to be involved heavily in musical theatre, and performing on stage and singing was my very favorite thing to do to get my mind off homework, applications, and all the drama taking place at school. I could just let everything go!

Music helps me deal with my emotions when they go all over the place. It helps express my feelings in a way that I never could on my own

I used to be a serious drug addict. Because of music, mainly the bands The Postal Service and Say Anything, I was able to not only decide I wanted to quit, but was able to. January 16th was my 7th year sober

I can always count on music to be there for me when I'm in a bad mood. The right song can just brighten up my day.
