This audiobook includes original music composed by the author. "Shine Shine Shine" is the stunning debut novel by Netzer, who is also a musician. Netzer has composed original music exclusively for the audiobook program that she feels speaks to the plot and enhances the narrative. Netzer describes her songs as exactly what Sunny and Maxon, her main characters, would have been feeling throughout the course of the story. "These are love songs for and about my characters,” Netzer explains, “they connect readers to the characters in a visceral, emotional way and allow me to say with music what goes beyond the words on the page."
About "Shine Shine Shine":
When Maxon met Sunny, he was seven years, four months, and eighteen days old. Or, he was 2,693 rotations of the earth old. Maxon was different. Sunny was different. They were different together.
Now, twenty years later, they are married, and Sunny yearns to be “normal.” She’s got the housewife thing down perfectly, but Maxon, a genius engineer, is on a NASA mission to the moon, programming robots for a new colony. Once they were two outcasts who found likely love in each other, but now they’re parents to an autistic son. Sunny is pregnant again, and her mother is dying. Their marriage is on the brink of exploding – what exactly has gone wrong?
When an accident in space puts the mission in peril, everything Sunny and Maxon have built hangs in the balance. Dark secrets all come tumbling to the light, and nothing will ever be the same. Shine Shine Shine is a unique love story, an adventure between worlds, and a stunning novel of love, death, and what it means to be human.
The audiobook program also includes original music specifically composed by the author to connect readers to the characters. Netzer describes her songs as exactly what Sunny and Maxon would have been feeling throughout the course of the story. “These are love songs for and about my characters,” Netzer explains, “they connect readers to the characters in a visceral, emotional way and allow me to say with music what goes beyond the words on the page.”
The program also includes a bonus interview between the author and narrator Joshilyn Jackson.
