Brig has never been allowed to hear a sad song in her entire life. Her Playlist Treatment Plan, designed to control her emotions by playing appropriate songs in her head, isn’t working for her. But when her friend is chosen to go to Musician’s School and given a musical instrument, Brig might have her one chance to hear a song that matches how she really feels, instead of how she should.
