The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr

Genre: YA Contemporary

Publisher: Little, Brown

Release Date: January 2013

Goodreads Synopsis:

Lucy Beck-Moreau once had a promising future as a concert pianist. Now, at sixteen, it's over. A death, and a betrayal, led her to walk away. But without music in her life, Lucy's not sure who she is, or who she wants to be. Then she meets Will, her brother's new piano teacher, who is young, kind, and interested in helping Lucy find her way back to piano-not for an audience, but on her own terms.

National Book Award finalist Sara Zarr takes readers inside one girl's struggle to reclaim her love of music, life, and herself in this stunning novel about finding joy in unexpected places.


“After a minute of silence, Gus said, ‘Don’t be one of those people who drinks.’
God, was I that bad? She tried to make a joke. ‘Ever? The whole rest of my life?’” (Paperback, pg. 152)
