A summer of friendship, romance, and songs in major chords. . . . CHARLIE DUSKIN loves music, and she knows she's good at it. But she only sings when she's alone, on the moonlit porch or in the back room at Old Gus's Secondhand Record and CD Store. Charlie's mom and grandmother have both died, and this summer she's visiting her grandpa in the country, surrounded by ghosts and grieving family, and serving burgers to the local kids at the milk bar. She's got her iPod, her guitar, and all her recording equipment, but she wants more: A friend. A dad who notices her. The chance to show Dave Robbie that she's not entirely unspectacular. ROSE BUTLER lives next door to Charlie's grandfather and spends her days watching cars pass on the freeway and hanging out with her troublemaker boyfriend. She loves Luke but can't wait to leave their small country town. And she's figured out a way: she's won a scholarship to a science school in the city, and now she has to convince her parents to let her go. This is where Charlie comes in. Charlie, who lives in the city, and whom Rose has ignored for years. Charlie, who just might be Rose's ticket out. Told in alternating voices and filled with music, friendship, and romance, Charlie and Rose's qlittle wanting songq is about the kind of longing that begins as a heavy ache but ultimately makes us feel hopeful and wonderfully alive. From the Hardcover edition.He doesna#39;t answer my question, just flicks his eyes over Grandpaa#39;s old yellow rain boots, my short dress, and this hat that Gus says makes me look like the revolutiona#39;s coming. ... a€œDad thought we could make some extra money at Christmas.
