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.

Aside from reading, listening to music is my only way to deal with my emotions. Music helped me during those times when I feel like I'm very down.

Music helps me because it brightens my mood and chases away all the bad thoughts.

Music has calmed me down, in this case, made a sad feeling better. Once it enters your mind, it gets some of the pain away. It haloed me after a death.

Music is medicine for the soul. Depending on the song, it can bring back good or bad memories. One can find songs that identify with their situation, so that they know they are not alone in this great big planet we live on, and it makes us feel connect to others. As for me, it has helped me in times of tragedy to soothe my heart, in times of celebration to extend the feeling of happiness and joy, and in special times to get me into the "mood" of the occasion.

Music helped me survive my adolescence! There were so many bands and songs that I would listen to on repeat while I was trying to sort out my life. I still use music to help me relax, to help inspire me when I write, and just to chill out.
