Supergirl Mixtapes

Meagan Brothers

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)

In Meagan Brothers's Supergirl Mixtapes, a music-obsessed girl travels to New York City to find herself. After years of boredom in her rural South Carolina town, Maria is thrilled when her father finally allows her to visit her estranged artist mother in New York City. She’s ready for adventure, and she soon finds herself immersed in a world of rock music and busy streets, where new people and ideas lie around every concrete corner. This is the freedom she’s always longed for—and she pushes for as much as she can get, skipping school to roam the streets, visit fancy museums, and flirt with the cute clerk at a downtown record store.
 
But just like her beloved New York City, Maria’s life has a darker side. Behind her mother’s carefree existence are shadowy secrets, and Maria must decide just where—and with whom—her loyalty lies.

Read an Excerpt

Supergirl Mixtapes
PART ONE1I'm not going back. The words pounded through my head as I sat there in Penn Station. My fists were clenched and my throat was tight. I'd been fighting off waves of queasiness for the last few hours. I didn't know where I was going, or how I was going to get there, but I knew I could not, under any circumstances, go back. Not yet.I didn't want to prove them right. My grandmother and my dad. My grandmother never liked my mom, and whenever she wanted to needle my dad, all she had to do was bring up "that woman you married who had the nerve to abandon her own child."
