Colby and Bev has been the best of friends since time immemorial. While on a longed-for post-senior year The Disenchanments' band tour/road trip, their relationship experiences a setback as Colby discovers that Bev's future plans has changed.
Along the road, Colby tries to understand the girl he thought he knew as well as finding a new master plan for himself.
Together with their closest friends Meg and Alexa, a coming-of-age story of getting lost, redeeming oneself and friendship enchants us through The Disenchantments.
It was a good story, worthwhile of anyone's time especially if YA is your taste in books as I am. I liked that The Disenchantments, the band, was a horrible band. I don't know why but it has that amusing quality to it. It seemed authentic in a way. I love the tragic oh-so-dramatic story behind Bev's self-destructive personality. I love Colby's nerdy wide-eyed helplessly-in-love boy aura. I love Meg's spunky best-supporting-role character and Alexa's quirky cutesy nature.
But let us focus more on Meg here because she has a lot to her than one can surreptitiously notice. I think she is secretly in love with Colby but she'll rather hold back and let him be happy with Bev because she is just this awesome girl-next-door who is mature and has a lot of adventure in her anyway. That notion is bittersweet. Amidst the whole dilemma of Colby and Bev, she stood out to me.
