The Beauty That Remains

We rated this book:


Sasha, Logan, and Autumn used to be bound by their love of music and one special local band, Unraveling Lovely. Now UL is broken up, and all three teens are dealing with recent deaths and their separate griefs. They soon find, however, that music can still move them and grief doesn’t need to be borne alone.

The Beauty That Remains introduces readers to a large cast of characters who all have different burdens. Beyond the recent losses each have experienced, these teens grapple with family relationships, alcohol abuse, guilt, and other issues. Their problems, and their occasional failings, do not define them, however. Author Ashley Woodfolk shows readers that humans are complicated but beautiful. The multiple points-of-view in the story and the grounding in music (though much of it is invented, with the songs and local bands created for the story) make the book a rich tapestry of human experience and of what people can bear and accomplish when they must.
