Waiting on Wednesday: Indigo Blues
"Even though you tossed me away, I'm here to stay.
Oh, Indigo, how could you let me go . . .
-from "Indigo Blues" written by Adam Spade, performed by Blank Stare
I never asked to be famous—or infamous. Such is my fate for briefly dating (and dumping) Adam Spade. Yes, the Adam from the indie rock band who wrote "Indigo Blues"—the song that gave the band overnight success, propelled them to New York City, and stole my precious anonymity. Now I'm pawed by fans, stalked by reporters, and pegged as a vicious heartbreaker. And Adam is still calling me. Doesn't he have better things to do?
With a hit single and a promising career, I should be on top of the world. People on the street are beginning to recognize me, which is cool. And scary. The band is counting on me to write another hit, but I can't stop thinking about Indigo. Why won't she answer the phone?" -Goodreads.com
Danielle Joseph did a fabulous job with her first book, Shrinking Violet, and I have high expectations for this one. It sounds a lot like Robin Benway's Audrey, Wait! which I loved. Of course, there are a couple key differences that I'm excited to see play out.
This book will be released July 1, 2010
