Overview

Kevin Emerson's Exile, book one of the Exile series, combines the swoon-worthy romance of a Susane Colasanti novel with the rock 'n' roll of Eleanor & Park.

Summer Carlson knows how to manage bands like a professional—minus the whole falling-for-the-lead-singer-of-the-latest-band part. But Caleb Daniels isn't an ordinary band boy—he's a hot, dreamy, sweet-singing, exiled-from-his-old-band, possibly-with-a-deep-dark-side band boy. She also finds herself at the center of a mystery she never saw coming. When Caleb reveals a secret about his long-lost father, one band's past becomes another's present, and Summer finds it harder and harder to be both band manager and girlfriend. Maybe it's time to accept who she really is, even if it means becoming an exile herself. . . .

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
05/01/2014
Gr 9 Up—Summer Carlson enters her senior year of high school still reeling from the pain of losing the band she managed to a major record label. Finding a new band is easy at Mount Hope High, though. The school's PopArts program, which attracts teen music prodigies, offers lunchtime concerts, professional-grade practice studios, and a full espresso bar—it's the high school of every rocker's dreams. Summer connects with Caleb Daniels, who recently ditched his group without explanation. The teen reveals that his father was legendary rocker Eli White, who tragically drowned before finishing his band's much-anticipated second album. When Caleb discovers a letter his father wrote him, the teens embark on a wild goose chase to find tapes with three songs secretly recorded by White. Narrated by Summer, this novel will appeal to musicians and music lovers. Emerson keeps a solid balance of romance, fast-paced mystery, and coming-of-age strife (relationships with parents, defining one's self, friendship betrayal). A strong cosmic theme runs through the novel, grounded by the model solar system spread throughout the town, which Caleb and Summer visit at various points during the story. All is bolstered by the protagonist's introspective thoughts, which give the book a sense of depth without coming off as preachy. Summer observes "maybe we go in circles, but they're orbits, created by the gravity of our hearts and hopes…." Teens may be disappointed by the abrupt ending, but even so, the novel is a worthwhile read.—Nicole Knott, Watertown High School, CT

    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)
    17-year-old Summer is annoyed after the band she managed got signed by a record label and dumped her, so now she’s out to find a new band.
    Can she make another band happen though? And is a dead rock-stars son the right way to go?


    This was an okay story, but I just couldn’t get into it.

    Summer was an okay character, she seemed to think that she was wonderful though, and as soon as one band left she just had to go and find another one to manage. Why she was so obsessed I don’t know, but I just didn’t get why she felt the need to instantly start managing, or even forming a new band, especially given how her previous band had bailed on her at the first opportunity.

    The storyline in this was okay, but I lost interest. For some reason this book just didn’t hold my attention, and there wasn’t a whole lot to keep me reading; the music side of things didn’t excite me, and the romance was fleeting. I did like the mystery side of the story, but that didn’t feel developed enough, and the pace was just too slow.
    The ending was also a bit of a disappointment. I just felt like very little was resolved, and the end wasn’t really an end, the book just stopped. While I was glad to be finished, the ending was less than satisfying, which really annoyed me.
    Overall; okay, but didn’t hold my interest well.
    6.5 out of 10.
