Blog Tour: Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham - Tens List

Reunited by Hilary Weisman Graham
June 12, 2012; Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers


1 Concert
2000 Miles
3 Ex-Best Friends

Alice, Summer, and Tiernan are ex-best friends.

Back in middle school, the three girls were inseparable. They were also the number one fans of the rock band Level3.

But when the band broke up, so did their friendship. Summer ran with the popular crowd, Tiernan was a rebellious wild-child, and Alice spent high school with her nose buried in books.

Now, just as the girls are about to graduate, Level3 announces a one-time-only reunion show.

Even though the concert’s 2000 miles away, Alice buys three tickets on impulse. And as it turns out, Summer and Tiernan have their own reasons for wanting to get out of town. Good thing Alice’s graduation gift (a pea-green 1976 VW camper van known as the Pea Pod) is just the vehicle to get them there.

But on the long drive cross-country, the girls hit more than a few bumps in the road. Will their friendship get an encore or is the show really over?(courtesy of Goodreads)

Tens List: Best Concerts Hilary Has Attended:

Please welcome Hilary Weisman Graham to Alison Can Read! I'm so jealous of all the fabulous concerts she's seen.

1. Sting (first concert)

2. James Taylor (on the way out of the parking lot, he waved at us from his tour bus)

3. Radiohead (Saw them in a small nightclub in Boston way back when they were the opening act for Belly. Crazy.)

4. The Cure

5. The Pixies

6. Morrisey

7. Rufus Wainwright

8. Cowboy Junkies (the only concert I ever cried through—their songs are just so sad)

9. The Grateful Dead (wasn’t really a fan but a hippie friend on tour gave me a “miracle” ticket)

10. Michael Franti & Spearhead (most recent)


  1. Book sounds interesting! Concerts sound awesome! :D

  2. How lame am I that I've only been to 2 concerts ever? Pretty lame I think:) Very cool that she got to see The Grateful Dead, even if you're not a fan of their music, that'd still be a memorable experience I would think!

  3. Jenny thinks she's lame? I'm lamer ;) I only was at one concert in my life, it was Bon Jovi when I was 15?

    Sometimes I think I missed out on things!

    This book sounds actually super awesome and speaking of this book, I first heard about this last year at BBC- which reminds me... I'm going to meet you in just a few days! How freaking awesome is this!!!!!!

  4. This book sounds cute. :) And wow she has attended a ton of concerts!!!

  5. Alright, I admit that I am big boy band fan. i went to see two Backstreet Boys concerts and ended up loosing my voice after each concert. Still, best days of my life!

    On another note, this sounds like a great story! I love books with tension and friends that discvoer what brought them together in the first place.

  6. Some great concerts. I grew up in Idaho and unfortunately no one came to play in Idaho Falls....bummer. Cowboy I have their song Sweet Jane in my head.

  7. What is it about first concerts that leave their mark. Mine was for The Offspring. BEST. CONCERT. EVER. Of course, I almost died in the mosh pit, but really, the blood and tears were worth it!

    Radiohead, Belly, The Cure. Man, I'd love to go see them live. Maybe one day they will have Vegas shows or something. LOL

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Loved it.

  8. A bit jealous of some of these concerts :) My favorites were local bands in tiny basements. Can't wait to check out this book!

  9. Book sounds great. So do the concerts. I once saw the Rolling Stones in concert.

  10. Holy cow, I love concerts and live music. THere's just something so visceral about the experience that makes me love the band even more! Can't wait to read this book; it sounds fabulous.

  11. What a cute cover! I like the plot as well...

  12. I really want to read this, I totally wanna read a road trip book since I can't go on one for real this summer.

  13. These are things that you could not survive without. They include, of course, food, water and shelter. Even here, these should be at a minimum. Thanks. |

  14. It's very easy to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this website. |

  15. It is always on the side of those who needs help. |


I love comments. I appreciate every one! Thank you in advance.
