Praise for Harmonic Feedback

“A brilliant first published novel…”


“A nuanced, sympathetic portrait that earns its hard-hitting climax.”

-Kirkus Reviews

“Drea’s search for stability and the need to escape being labeled is poignant and convincing.”
-Publishers Weekly

“Alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking, Harmonic Feedback is a book about acceptance, exclusion, joy, pain, loss, and finding your way in a world that makes no sense to you. In short, it is a very real view of what it means to be a teen today and a fine first novel for Tara Kelly.”
-Ellen Hopkins, New York Times Bestselling Author of Crank, Burned, Glass, Impulse, and Tricks.

Praise for AMPLIFIED

“…inspiring, heartwarming, and engaging.”


“Jasmine will have readers in her corner from the first flip remark out of her mouth, and Kelly’s (Harmonic Feedback) background in music is evident in her electric descriptions of Jasmine’s evolution as a performer.”

-Publishers Weekly

“A treat for industrial-rock lovers; a pleasant summer read for others.”

-Kirkus Reviews

Readers will be rooting for Jasmine and her newfound family to make it big.”


“Jasmine is realistically imperfect but likable…”

-School Library Journal

“Impossible to put down, readers will thrum to the rhythm of disaster, recovery, lies and truth. It is a compelling and remarkable combination.”

Tasha Saecker, Appleton Public Library

“I’m not a one-sitting reader, but I got through Amplified in one sitting because it was easy to do. I was lost in the story and in Jasmine.”
