B-Sides and Broken Hearts is a wonderful book that made me remember why I love music. When I finished the book, I immediately began to miss the characters– the sign of a good piece of fiction, in my eyes.
If you love music, especially if you love music in a way that borders on obsessive, you need to read this book. If your love for music has faded and you want to remember why you loved it so much, you DEFINITELY need to read it.– Betsy Ellison, Amazon Reviewer
Caryn Rose’s B-Sides and Broken Hearts is a rare book, one that incorporates music seamlessly into its core. Rose’s debut novel is filled with characters whose love for music is great and relatable, their passion for ’80s and ’90s indie rock and punk jumps off the page in this absorbing novel.

If you’ve ever sat in a diner at 3 a.m. after a concert and hashed over the set list minute by minute, song by song — or marked the events in your life by what tour was taking place at the time, or which record was just released — or waited in line all night to buy concert tickets – or drove across the country to see a show — then likely you will enjoy this book as much as I did…Rose is steeped in rock and roll history, this is her life blood, she walks the walk and talks the talk.
