Reviews

"A smart, sexy, and fast-paced story with a swoon-worthy love interest. Tone Deaf will be music to your ears." Jessica Taylor, author of Wandering Wild

"Much like its hero, Tone Deaf's flashy, rock-star exterior surrounds a sweet, vulnerable soul that made it impossible to put down. It is equal parts fun and touching, with a dash of humor and lot of heart. The friendships, as well as the romance, have intense, believable chemistry, and with a giant pitbull named Cuddles thrown in the mix, I was in love!" Laura Lee Anderson, author of Song of Summer

"Tone Deaf is everything that's best about YA writing a strong story, well-defined characters we can care about with distinct voices, and the writing is like walking into Hemingway's well-lighted room. . . . Tone Deaf's characters will stay with me for a long time." Douglas Rees, award-winning author of Vampire High

"Olivia Rivers has hit all the right notes with Tone Deaf." A. R. Kahler, author of Pale Queen Rising and Shades of Darkness

"The portrayal of Ali as Deaf is authentic and modern. She loves rock concerts for the vibrations and sensory pull of the crowd. She prefers to sign but exasperatedly reads the lips of people who talk fast or turn away as they talk. As Ali, Jace, and the band tour amid Amber alerts, surprising emotional connections are painfully forged and will resonate with young survivors of abuse, especially as Ali takes small steps toward recovery. VERDICT This gripping tale of survival has great appeal due to the parallel boy/girl narrative structure, the portrayal of a Deaf character at home in the realm of music and songwriting, and the overall pop culture tenor."
