Spin the Sky Playlist by Jill MacKenzie
I listened to all of these songs while writing SPIN THE SKY—many of them on repeat for hours and hours at a time.  Some I was originally drawn to for the tone or for the lyrics, some helped me evoke that kind of hopeless emotion that Mags felt throughout the story, and others are just really great songs that made me want to dance and, in turn, write powerful dance scenes. Each of them, however, correlates to a specific scene in the book.
Stop by Live to Read tomorrow for Day #4 of the tour!

Magnolia Woodson wants nothing more than to get her and her sister, Rose, out of the pitifully small, clamming-obsessed Oregon town that hates them—she just doesn’t know how. Forced to put up with the snide comments and hateful looks the townspeople throw at them, Mags thinks she’s destined to pay for the horrible, awful thing her mom did—and that she’s left her and Rose to deal with—until the day she dies. But when a nationwide televised dance competition posts tryouts in nearby Portland, Mags’s best friend, George, says they have to go and audition. Not only have they spent the past fourteen years of their lives dancing side-by-side, dreaming of a day just like this, but also it could be Mags’s chance of a lifetime—a chance to win the grand-prize money and get her and Rose out of Summerland, a chance to do the thing she loves most with everyone watching, a chance to show the town that she’s not—and has never been—a “no-good Woodson girl,” like her mother. But will the competition prove too steep? And will Mags be able to retain her friendship with George as they go head-to-head in tryouts? Mags will have to learn that following her dreams may mean changing her life forever.
