As promised, here are some of the songs that I listened to over, and over, as I wrote Don’t Kiss the Messenger. These songs all remind me of CeCe. Some of them you’ll recognize that I mentioned in the book, like the song by The Strokes (the song CeCe plays in the locker room), and Gray or Blue (a lyric she texts to Emmett). I think The Ghosts of Beverly Drive is very fitting for CeCe when you hear the lyrics. Some of them are high energy–songs that I imagined she danced/worked out to. And, YES, I will be sharing Emmett’s list soon.
