In 1999, Ella was one of three students who arrived at her Denver school with a cache of weapons and a plan to use them. Years later, she sifts through accounts of other violent young women, writing letters to a little sister who had to grow up in the aftermath of that day.

In 1952, Sally was a runaway, hitch-hiking around Australia with a strange, secretive girl named Amy. Each outcasts in their own way, the pair navigate a landscape scarred by old memories and tragedies, searching for a place that will feel like safety and home. 

And in 2011, Charlotte was a music journalist on tour with a band, listening to their stories of loss and hope. Though they are in very different times and places, the three are linked by a web of legacies and second chances. 

Demons, fallen soldiers, hunters, rock & roll stars, and high-school heartbreaks are all thrown together. The result could never be anything but the Devil's mixtape.

From the Reviewers:

This book seamlessly blends its themes of violence, queer identity, and teenage sexuality with its richly-layered Australian history and even a hint of the occult. But the most important thing about The Devil's Mixtape is how brilliantly it tells the stories of its women: each of them have a spark and a vital fury and voice that will be instantly and achingly familiar to anyone who's ever felt lost. I cannot recommend this book enough. It is pure genius."
--Elizabeth, 5-star Amazon review

The Devil's Mixtape is part horror story, part declaration of love for non-conformists, especially those who embrace being outside the norm. It's passionate, smart, powerful and at times incredibly beautiful."
--Narrelle, 5-star Amazon review
