Forget Grammy nominations. The real measure of musical success has to be getting your song name-checked in a young adult novel. Unbreak Your Heart is full of music references, Elliott Smith’s Clementine stands out, and among the playlists and song titles is “Skinny Love.” Bon Iver has made it.
For those of you here for the books: I really liked Unbreak My Heart. It is a sweet story that delves into the complexity of teenage love and friendship, but what will stick with me in this book aren’t the teen characters. It’s the parents. I actually got a bit teary as I read one scene in particular with Clem and her parents. I hope that I can be as supportive and understanding when my daughter is a teenager.
For those of you here for the music: here is “Skinny Love.”
