Summary

This is a story about love, but not the kind of love you think. You'll see...

In the lush and magical Pacific Northwest live two best friends who grew up like sisters: charismatic, mercurial, and beautiful Aurora, and the devoted, watchful narrator. Each of them is incomplete without the other. But their unbreakable bond is challenged when a mysterious and gifted musician named Jack comes between them.

His music is like nothing I have ever heard. It is like the ocean surging, the wind that blows across the open water, the far call of gulls.

Suddenly, each girl must decide what matters most: friendship, or love. What both girls don't know is that the stakes are even higher than either of them could have imagined. They're not the only ones who have noticed Jack's gift; his music has awakened an ancient evil--and a world both above and below which may not be mythical at all. We have paved over the ancient world but that does not mean we have erased it.
The real and the mystical; the romantic and the heartbreaking all begin to swirl together in All Our Pretty Songs,Sarah McCarry's brilliant debut, carrying the two on journey that is both enthralling and terrifying.
And it's up to the narrator to protect the people she loves--if she can.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* An enigmatic, nameless narrator and her best friend, Aurora, have known each other since birth. Their mothers lived together, carrying on their intoxicated party lifestyle until Cass, the narrator's mother, decided to give it all up when the girls were young and raise her daughter soberly, making a small living as a fortune-telling witch and taking in Aurora whenever the teen's home got out of hand. Now 17, the narrator and Aurora mirror each other, light and dark: Aurora is a flighty and sweet contrast to the narrator, with her surly demeanor and goth style. But when Jack, an adult guitarist, comes into their lives, their differences come to a head. Jack and the narrator fall in love, while Aurora plays games with Jack's scary boss, a man named Minos, who eventually convinces Jack to leave the small Northwest town for fame in California and Aurora goes along. McCarry's beautifully rich narrative is as smooth and seductive as Aurora and Jack can be, effortlessly dropping references to authors from Rousseau to Block. Goths and romantics both will eagerly await the second installment of a planned trilogy to find out what becomes of the girls, Jack, and the other well-drawn players in this magic-tinged cast.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2010 Booklist"
