Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: House score music

In the novel You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith, two teenagers - neighbors, but not exactly friends - take an impulsive road trip. Here's my playlist for their journey.

She Runs Away by Duncan Sheik
And I Will Follow by Lauren Kennedy
You Were Here by Sarah Harmer
At Your Side by The Corrs
Landmine by Jonatha Brooke
Amsterdam by Guster
Teardrop by Massive Attack
Hey Girl by Garrison Starr
Come Around by Marc Broussard
Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters as covered by Mandy Moore
Hello Goodbye by The Beatles
Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac*

* I'm not exactly a Fleetwood Mac fan, but as I reviewed my favorite quotes from the book, I got that song stuck in my head. Drat.

I really enjoyed the book and hope you do, too.

Read my interview with Jennifer E. Smith.

Garrison Starr is sort of a friend of mine. :) But she moved to Nashville. :( She's awesome.

I had no idea! Small world!

She was part of the LA music scene for a long time and was one of the regulars at Room 5. I got the live CD of a show I was at by the North La Brea All Star Conquistadors and that "band" was actually Garrison, Adrienne, Jay Nash and Gabriel Mann with my friend Adam Marcello (who I talk about all the time) on percussion. I'm actually going to that place to see Jay Nash tomorrow. Plus I have two of her actual CDs.

It is a small world. I remember finding out that I went to college with (but didn't know) the author of The Spiderwick Chronicles after reading your interview with her on here.

You're not a Fleetwood Mac fan? Not even a fan of Stevie? I could listen to her all day! (I guess it's okay if we disagree on this . . .)

Of course it's okay. To each her own!
