Read full description of the books We Hope You Like This Song: An Overly Honest Story about Friendship, Death, and Mix Tapes:From fourth grade onward, shy, nervous Bree Housley and fearless, outgoing Shelly were an inseparable, albeit unlikely, pair. Their friendship survived everything from the awkward years of junior high to the transformative upheavals of early adulthood—until, at the young age of 25, Shelly lost her life to complications caused by Preeclampsia.
We Hope You Like This Song is a tribute to the ineffable, incomparable bond that we call friendship, and a celebration of living life to the fullest. Housley recounts how she and her sister found a way to keep Shelly’s memory alive—by spending a year doing crazy things that Shelly would have done, like giving Valentines to strangers, singing at a karaoke bar, and letting her boyfriend pick out her outfits for a week. In the process, she paints a vivid, often hilarious, portrait of her fun-loving, social butterfly best friend and the many adventures they had growing up together in '80s and ’90s small-town America. Sweet, poignant, and yet somehow laugh-out-loud funny, We Hope You Like This Song is a touching story of love, loss, and the honoring of a friendship after it’s gone.
Read information about the authorBree Housley grew up in the pocket-sized town of Walcott, Iowa, where she started as a Subway Sandwich Artist and worked her way up to a very prestigious waitressing job at the "World's Largest Truckstop." From there, she spent over a decade as an advertising copywriter. She waxed poetic about everything from Pepsi to incontinence. She is currently a freelance writer in Chicago. Bree's first book, "We Hope You Like This Song," was inspired by her childhood best friend, Shelly (Warner) Bridgewater. They were like Cagney & Lacey without all that fighting crime stuff.
