A Song for a New DayA Song for a New Day by Sarah Pinsker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is our definitive musical conflict novel.

No, it's not about genres. It's about live venues vs. remote, where it suddenly becomes illegal to have large gatherings thanks to something a bit worse than Covid. It's about corporate stoogery versus real connection. It's about the very real dystopia of our lives that could easily swap out with anything we do, when we're progressively losing our social identity, the reality of real people.

The music underlines it as, truly, most stories of music always does. Let's face it, there's hardly anything better suited to this theme of rebellion and belonging than music.

I really enjoyed this novel. It may not have completely blown me away in every aspect, but what it does right, it does very well.
