Shelfari edited the description of The Engine Driver Friday, September 30, 2011.
Sixteen-year-old Brig has never been allowed to hear a sad song in her entire life. Her personal Playlist Treatment Plan, designed to control her emotions by playing appropriate songs in her head, isn’t working for her. But when her friend Annaby is chosen to go to Musician’s School and is given a Permit to Carry a musical instrument, Brig might have her one chance to hear a sad song, a love song – or a song that matches what her depression feels like, instead of what her feelings should be. The Engine Driver is a YA dystopian short story of 21 pages.
