    YA Contemporary

    Pitch (sorry...all I have at this moment is a 3-sentence pitch): When 16-year-old Ivy’s mom takes off one summer, she leaves Ivy not only with an inconsolable sadness, but also with an unbridled enthusiasm for music—especially for The Mary Kennedys, an 80s rock band out of Ireland. As Ivy’s memories of her mom start to fade, she hatches a plan to reunite the band. She’ll do anything—even get herself all the way to Ireland—to keep this music and her connection to her mother alive.
