Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Catherine Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional — she's a student at the PopArts Academy at Mount Hope High, where rock legends Allegiance to North got their start. The never-skipping-class Catherine part of her knows, though, that falling for the lead singer of her latest band is the least professional thing a manager can do. But Caleb Daniels isn't an ordinary band boy — he's a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. And he can do that thing. That thing when someone sings a song and it inhabits you, possesses you, and moves you like a marionette to its will.

Over tacos on lunch dates to far-off outlet-mall planets and during practices at the Hive with their new band, Dangerheart, Catherine — no, Summer — falls in love with Caleb.

She also finds herself at the center of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band's past becomes another's present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. She knows what the Catherine side of her would do, but she also knows what her heart is telling her. Maybe it's time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself....

Kevin Emerson's Exile is a witty and passionate ode to love, rock and roll, and the freedom that comes in the moment when somebody believes in you, even if you're not quite ready to believe in yourself.

Review:

"Emerson (the Atlanteans series) wields his chops as a musician in this series opener about a Los Angeles arts high school rock band trying to make it big. Senior Caleb Daniels's new band, Dangerheart, has all the components of the next big thing — a dreamy singer (in Caleb), a brooding female bassist, and lyrics that make girls swoon. There's only one problem: Caleb doesn't want to owe his fame to his biological father, a rock legend who drowned years earlier, and whose connection to Caleb has only recently been revealed. When Summer Carlson — Dangerheart's manager, Caleb's girlfriend, and the novel's narrator — sets up the band's breakout tour to San Francisco, the circumstances surrounding Caleb's legacy grow murkier, including rumors of his father's three missing songs and a record label demanding answers that no one seems to have. Emerson's seasoned music references and deep knowledge of the business (including its slimy side) will draw readers in, but it's the emerging conspiracy theories that give the book its edge — and provide the perfect setup for the sequel. Ages 14 – up. Agent: George Nicholson, Sterling Lord Literistic. (May)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

“A captivating road trip of the heart.” Susane Colasanti, Bestselling Author of When It Happens

Review:

“This engaging read steeped in music, romance and mystery opens a promising trilogy.” Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Kevin Emerson's Exile combines the swoon-worthy romance of a Susane Colasanti novel with the rock 'n' roll of Eleanor & Park. Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional — minus the whole falling-for-the-lead-singer-of-the-latest-band part. But Caleb Daniels isn't an ordinary band boy — he's a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. She also finds herself at the center of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band's past becomes another's present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. Maybe it's time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself....
