    I really need to thank E.A Rigg for contacted me to review of he

    I really need to thank E.A Rigg for contacted me to review of her book. Now I must shout from the rooftops on how good it is! I get giddy when I can read a book that involves anything about music in the plot. It just forms a different reading experience once a song is attached to a moment in a book. So I LOVED it when Casey Barnes the silver tonged lead makes anonymous thought provoking playlists for students, then hides them mysteriously for the person to later find. After reading this quippy book from author E.A. Rigg I wanted Casey to make me my very own playlist too.

    Casey Barnes Eponymous takes the readers into a world of a teena

    Casey Barnes Eponymous takes the readers into a world of a teenager, whose infatuation with music and an ex-boyfriend who barely takes notice of her, which is filled with laughter, humor and twisted surprises. Along the way, she discovers true love, new friendships, secrets and the meaning of just being herself. I thought this book has its own great potential and is a page-turner; I enjoyed every bit of Casey’s musing and rambling. The author made it easy for readers to engage with Casey with some well-written dialogues and I believe that some teenage girls out there could relate to her. Casey is a wonderful character of her own. She’s witty and reckless yet comical in way that can irk everyone that gets in her way; such quirky concoction that gave birth to a pure rebel. I should also say that Casey reminded me of Ellen Page in Juno; one of the most memorable teen characters I’ve known.

    Recommended to all!

    Great story

    This is a very entertaining, fresh YA contemporary novel. I really enjoyed the story. Casey is a character I could definitely relate to. She’s cool, laid-back, a smart-ass and totally driven. She’s also a music junkie, and her love for music is almost infectious. I found myself smiling frequently, and I had to go online and listen to the music that comes up as the story plays out. It definitely heightens the mood of the story that way. I loved how Casey would stick a playlist with three songs in a library book after scouting out her “victim” du jour. Each playlist consisted of three songs to help guide the recipient through their day. It starts off with a pop song for a “feel good, everything is going to be fabulous” start to the day. The second song is a rock song which either energizes you when you hit the afternoon slump, or punctuates your frustration if your day isn’t going so well. The third and final song of the day is the brooding, existential “college” song (not to be confused with the beer-bong, frat boy, partying college song) which brings you back to reality and grounds you.

    I liked all of the characters in the book, and I felt like Casey’s relationship with each one of the supporting characters was realistic and heart-felt. There is plenty of humor in the book as well as a few touching moments. I especially liked the dynamic between Casey and her brother, Yull. It’s a very believable love/hate relationship between siblings.

    The author tells a wonderful story which is engaging enough to keep the reader going. I, personally, wish there had been less “telling” and more “showing”. While the music helped punctuate the mood, I think without it, the book may have felt pretty flat. I’m a very organic reader and I like a lot of descriptors to really place me inside the story. I want sounds, smells, feelings, etc. Despite a wonderful story, I was left feeling like I hadn’t been able to fully immerse myself into the book like I wanted to.

    All that aside, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light and fun read.

    Awesome book

    The main character is always making 3 song playlists for people and moments in her lives. She is funny and realistic. You will love this book! I couldn't put it down. This book is great for teen girls -- especially if you are into music.
