Await the book display for “A Song Apart” by Jeffrey H. Baer at the LA Times Festival of Books 2022.

One needs not to be a (pop) music lover to enjoy reading “A Song Apart” by Jeffrey H. Baer. The music romance story revolves around 17-year-old rising singer Shannon Kistler and 19-year-old college student and aspiring singer/songwriter Kevin Derow.

“A Song Apart” starts when Shannon spots Kevin on a Manhattan street wearing her concert t-shirt. She offers gratitude in her own way, leaving her unlikeliest fan in shock. When the two teenagers meet a few days later, Shannon slips Kevin her phone number, and their unlikely friendship begins, eventually blooming into a romance.

They find out they have several things in common, such as facing challenges from their own sides. The public cannot take Shannon seriously as a recording artist, but she risks her sudden success by making some public mistakes after breaking into a soulless music industry with unusual ease. Meanwhile, Kevin earns the ire and jeers from family, friends, colleagues, coworkers, and even random strangers over the girl he idolizes. As if that weren’t enough, he unwittingly exposes a payola scheme devised by Shannon’s record label, threatening her career and possibly his own freedom.

Would their chance encounter lead to them making beautiful music together? Or would their love be torn apart by scandal and challenges from an unforgiving segment of society?
