A mature YA/New Adult contemporary rock star romance by Ginger Scott
Arizona Wakefield was a beat without a melody. Living a half-breathing life in a half-finished neighborhood with parents who always wore half-hearted smiles, the high school senior only had one thing that let her color outside her family’s perfectly drawn lines—her drums.
Jesse Barringer was a song without a chorus. The son of a washed-up rock star who’s also one hell of a deadbeat dad, he was given two things from his father—musical genius and a genetic link to the bipolar disorder that drives him mad.
One night in a garage at the end of a cul-de-sac in the middle of a bankrupt California neighborhood, Jesse’s melody found Arizona’s rhythm. An angry boy with storm-colored eyes found a blonde angel in Doc Martens with missing lines in her own story. Where her rhythm stopped, his words took over, and together, they wrote one hell of a story.
** Drummer Girl is a mature YA/New Adult romance that touches on mental health, drug abuse and includes mature sexual situations.
Sometimes you march to the beat of a different drum. And then there’s a time when you need to change the beat in order to make sense of what has happened in your life. Arizona made her own beat, so it was appropriate that she was actually a drummer. Jesse was lost; he had a melody but no rhythm. Together they wrote their own music as Arizona provided a beat, nay a heartbeat, for Jesse. And in this new syncopation, they found each other, meaning, and their path. This doesn’t mean that life is perfect – it rarely ever is. But what it does mean is that it’s easier to navigate together, and together they give each other meaning.
Arizona is lost, but didn’t know how exactly while Jesse knows he is lost and doesn’t really want to be found. Music is the common thread for them, the link and path to each other. Their rocky path is filled with musical notes as they discover not only each other but themselves. And even though they don’t seem like it, they are a yin and yang – two parts of a whole.
Drummer Girl, Copyright Ginger Scott 2019“That’s the first time I’ve played that song. I like it. We should add it to our set,” he says, pulling the strap from around his neck before setting his guitar at the foot of his bed. “What do you think?”
