Mini-Challenge #3

One of my FAVORITE books is Saving June by the extremely talented Hannah Harrington.  Part of the reason I loved that book (besides Jake of course) had to do with the music.  I can't sing to save my life (or anyone else's for that matter) but I don't let that stop me from enjoying it and when it's combined with a book it's like a match made in Heaven!
Saving June's playlists are a fantastic mix of old, new and indie.  Most of the bands/songs I could already sing by heart but I was introduced to some new flavors too like the band, Blind Pilot and I will forever equate their lead singer's voice with that of Jake Tolan. *swoons*
