Author's Playlist-Spectral by Shannon Duffy

I asked Spectral author, Shannon Duffy, to share the playlist for the I love songs that fit books. You can find that below. Doesn't the novel sound great? I think the Witness Protection Program is interesting to begin with, so to learn you aren't actually in it when you thought you were? Curious!!

Breakaway~ Kelly Clarkson
Sparks Fly~ Taylor Swift
Beautiful eyes~ Taylor Swift
Whatever it takes~ Lifehouse
Skyscraper~ Demi Lovato
Your guardian angel~ The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
Don’t you forget about me~ Enrique Iglesias
Wish you were here~ Avril Lavrigne
She’s a butterfly~ Martina Mcbride
Firework~ Katy Perry
Love you like a love song~ Selena Gomez
Just the way you are~ Bruno Mars
Unwritten~ Natasha Bedingfield

What do you think about the book and/or song picks?

Spectral Summary
Convinced she’s a part of the witness protection program, sixteen-year-old Jewel Rose is shuffled around the globe with her family like a pack of traveling gypsies. After arriving at lucky home twenty-seven, she stumbles upon a mysterious boy with magical powers claiming to be her guardian . . . and warning of imminent danger. Despite the obvious sparks between them, Jewel discovers a relationship is forbidden, and the more she learns about dark, brooding Roman, she begins to question who she can even believe — the family who raised her, or the supposed sworn protector who claims they’ve been lying to her all along.

As she struggles to uncover who her family has really been running from, she is forced to hide her birthmark that reveals who she is. With new realities surfacing, unexplained powers appearing, and two tempting boys vying for her heart, Jewel battles to learn who she can trust in an ever growing sea of lies, hoping she’ll make it through her seventeenth birthday alive.
