The Last Hurrah
Alt 19 Publications, Feb 5, 2021 - Young Adult Fiction - 114 pages
3 nights, 2 days, and 1 massive music fest . . .
I’ve been content sweating under the covers, hiding from life all summer. That’s what happens when you suffer from a broken heart.
After being away for most of the summer break, my best friend returns and tries to draw me out of my funk. She can try all she wants, but I’m not leaving my bed until school starts.
But then she dangles tickets to The Last Hurrah. Broken heart or not, this weekend-long music festival is not to be missed.
I expect the music and ambience to be awesome. What I don’t expect is for my heart to forget it’s been crushed when I met the cute and quirky Link. We team up on a scavenger hunt for tickets to a super-secret show from our mutually favorite band: Black Moon.
Suddenly, the dark clouds resembling a shattered heart are breaking up.
Until we cross paths with my crowd-hating ex during the middle of our quest. I'm suddenly torn between my feelings of the past and my new attraction for Link.
Will I lose focus on the finish line of the scavenger hunt by folding into the reason I hid all summer long?
The Last Hurrah could turn out to be more than just a music festival. It could be the biggest turning point of my life.
Profits from the first 90-days of release for this young adult romantic comedy will be donated to #SaveOurStages, an association of over 3,000 independent venues in 50 states and Washington D.C. that banded together for targeted legislation to help them survive during the pandemic.
Venues were the first to close with COVID, and they will be the last to open. And there isn’t much they can do to bring in revenue during this time.
I’ve spent tons of hours enjoying live music, especially when I was a teenager. It’s a rite of passage for teens IMHO, and I couldn’t imagine not being able to experience it. So, let’s #SaveOurStages.
