9780316121897: DJ Rising

The first thing I hear is music. The first thing I've always heard is music.

Meet Marley, an unassuming high school junior who breathes in music like oxygen. In between caring for his heroin-addicted mother, and keeping his scholarship at a fancy prep school, he dreams of becoming a professional DJ.

When chance lands Marley his first real DJ job, his career as "DJ Ice" suddenly skyrockets. But when heart-rending disaster at home brings Marley crashing back down to earth, he is torn between obligation and following his dreams.

About the Author:

Love Maia has always been a reluctant reader. She sees her writing as an opportunity to reach out to other reluctant readers and make books more enjoyable for them by combining literature and music and by creating relatable characters. In addition to writing, she enjoys underground hip-hop, kickboxing, pizza, fog, death metal, and butterflies. Her Pearl drums and her Technics also please her immensely. When not hard at work on her next book, Love can be found playing drums in an alternative rock band around San Francisco. DJ Rising is her first novel. Her website is www.lovemaia.com.
