ABOUT SAVE ME, KURT COBAIN:
What if you discovered that Kurt Cobain is not only alive, but might be your real father? This nuanced and bittersweet YA debut will keep you guessing until the end.
Nico Cavan has been adrift since her mother vanished when she was four—maternal abandonment isn’t exactly something you can just get over. Staying invisible at school is how she copes—that and listening to alt music and summoning spirits on the Ouija board with her best friend and co-conspirator in sarcasm, Obe. But when a chance discovery opens a window onto her mom’s wild past, it sparks an idea in her brain that takes hold and won’t let go.
On a ferry departing Seattle, Nico encounters a slight blond guy with piercing blue eyes wearing a hooded jacket. Something in her heart tells her that this feeling she has might actually be the truth, so she follows him to a remote cabin in the Pacific Northwest. When she is stranded there by a winter storm, fear and darkness collide, and the only one who can save Nico might just be herself.
When I was told I was going to be a part of this tour and get to create a Mood Board I was so excited. This is one of my favorite times, having grown up in the 90’s. Nirvana was and still is one of my favorite bands. I loved the fashion, makeup, music, movies, TV shows, and everything about the grunge era. Save Me, Kurt Cobain has so many amazing take me back moments that made me happy and sad all at the same time. So I hope you enjoy my board and please share your thoughts and what you enjoyed about that time.
